WSP changemaker Chantelle Martin has sustainability focus

As changemakers, WSP's Business Admin team constantly enhances business practices, making colleagues’ lives easier and improving client service delivery. 

Whether it's turning around challenging reports, producing graphics efficiently, or reaching out across multiple teams together to assist with project delivery, Business Admin is at the nerve centre of WSP. 

Creating connections between colleagues

The shift to remote working has changed the way in which the department works. Lockdowns and the ongoing need for social distancing means that creating connections between colleagues, and with clients, in a virtual way has become vital. Facilitating this switch to virtual meeting platforms has been a priority for WSP.

During the first lockdown, Business Support Partner Chantelle Martin helped set up a ‘Lunchtime Learnings’ series of webinars. The format saw WSP team up with the Institute of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability (ICRS) and West London Business to discuss strategies for carbon reduction and sustainable development in the wider economy.

"The feedback was fantastic; people loved having a chance to learn something new, meet others and talk about non-Covid topics," says Chantelle.

Fighting against climate change 

It’s important to Chantelle that WSP teams are changemakers in the fight against climate change. She helps support colleagues across the business to think 'net zero first' by adopting sustainable processes like the single use plastics policy – encouraging colleagues to reduce and eliminate the amount they use from their work and home lives. 

Outside of work, Chantelle is a changemaker too. "I avoid buying ‘fast fashion’ and buy my food from ethical and responsible suppliers. I am inspired by the actress, screenwriter and director Michaela Coel. She is helping to change the narrative about what it is to be a black woman in the UK," she adds.
