- Directly employing staff from the locality, including unskilled operatives, apprentices and engineers
- Training and upskilling local staff
- Sourcing plant and materials from local suppliers
- Hiring local sub-contractors
- Purchasing materials from local suppliers
- Providing public amenities such as landscaping and park facilities
- Contributing to local projects
- Sponsoring local teams
- Providing site visits for schools and colleges
- Attending meet the buyer events
- Attending careers open days in local schools and colleges
- Upskilling the local supply chain to improve their performance on tenders and once they get to the site, so that they are better able to compete for work.
