Portakabin Values

Smart Working Principles

Everyone’s needs at work are different so one size does not fit all. Smart working is the opportunity to work flexible hours and from home. A conversation with your manager will be held to determine the best working arrangement to meet your team’s requirements. We feel this allows our colleagues to manage their wellbeing and work-life balance by effectively managing their work and personal commitments.

Responsible Business

Our Responsible Business approach is about growing Portakabin as a company and in a way that is beneficial for society. The focus for our activity is to create a positive social impact and go beyond the expected to benefit our customers, our people and the environment. Our targets on maintaining our responsible business approach can be viewed here.

Health & Wellbeing

​Through our key focus areas of health and wellbeing, which includes both mental health and physical health, we aim to:

  • Create a safe and healthy working environment where health risks are prevented and managed

  • Encourage and support employees to develop and maintain a healthy lifestyle

  • Erase the stigma surrounding mental health in order for people to talk openly and honestly about mental health in the workplace

  • Increase resilience by providing tools and techniques for individuals to be able to cope better with stresses in and out of work, on an individual level as well as a team level.

Diversity and Inclusion

At Portakabin we have signed a commitment that ensures that we create a fair and diverse working culture, to achieve this we are committed to:
