Naylor Love values diversity as an essential element of our culture.  We aspire to be a workplace that fosters and supports a diverse and inclusive workforce where everyone feels valued and respected.

Our aim is to inspire individuals to pursue a career in construction, challenging traditional assumptions and stereotypes associated with the construction industry.

Our strategy and supporting initiatives are based on five key pillars of diversity and inclusion. These pillars comprise our key goals and identify the priorities and actions we will take over the next few years.

  • Leadership

Our Leadership team take responsibility for shaping, guiding, encouraging, and supporting diversity and inclusion initiatives.

  • Building a Diverse Workforce

We will ensure that recruitment and selection processes support the strategies of identifying and selecting the best talent from the most diverse applicant pool.

We will strive to enhance the pipeline of women, Māori, Pasifika and other minority talent through integrated strategies and initiatives, ensuring that everybody is able to be successful and reach their potential.

  • Workplace & Culture

We recognise that building the capability of all our staff is important in sustaining a diverse and inclusive organisation.

We will introduce strategies and practices that will equip all managers with the ability to promote our diverse and inclusive culture.

  • Flexible Work & Equity

We will provide a workplace that is accommodating of diverse and changing life situations that enable staff to manage their work and their lives. Our flexible working arrangements and work practices are designed to accommodate the different needs of all staff.

Naylor Love will pay staff based on what they do, not who they are. Our remuneration practices aim to eliminate gender and ethnicity pay gaps, promoting equal pay and reward for all staff.

  • Communication

We will establish a Diversity Working Group to drive our diversity and inclusion initiatives and communicate them internally.

We will promote our initiatives through external organisations such as Diversity Works.


Tupu Toa

We are Major Partners of TupuToa, a movement that is committed to growing more Māori and Pacific leaders.

Diversity Works

We are members of Diversity Works NZ and have undertaken their Diversity and Inclusion Stocktake, which identified the actions we need to take to be a more diverse and inclusive workplace.


We are a Platinum Sponsor of the National Association Women in Construction. NAWIC promotes the construction industry as a great place for women to pursue, establish and sustain successful careers.


We support Aukaha in Otago, providing Māori and Pasifika with work experience opportunities with the aim to offer apprenticeships which support positive social outcomes.
