RHA and Creative Inclusive Cultures

The RHA is pleased to announce the partnership between She’s RHA and Creating Inclusive Cultures (CIC).

Creating Inclusive Cultures is the brainchild of Charlotte Sweeney OBE and is a collaboration of companies and employers who are committed to realising and take advantage of the benefits of diversity and inclusion. It provides a forum for businesses to share best practice and who want to create a thriving workplace for everyone.

There is an acute driver shortage in the road transport sector. It has an aging workforce (the average age of an HGV driver is 55) and because of the cost of training, there are not enough new entrants coming through the system.
