With continuing growth in the property sector, the attraction and retention of staff is becoming a challenge. The KeepWell Mark shows commitment to people and safety, health and wellbeing. These factors are increasingly important in the modern labour market. For many decades, the construction industry has been working to improve and innovate in the areas of health and safety, on and off site. Recently, this focus has quite rightly shifted to a more comprehensive and holistic approach to the overall health and wellbeing of employees both in work and at home. As the first construction company to achieve the Ibec KeepWell Mark, L&M Keating is leading the Irish construction industry’s drive toward greater commitment to employees’ health and wellbeing.
