Equality & Diversity Statement

The achievement of genuine equality of opportunity is at the heart of our mission as a company. We aim to build a working environment which exhibits the diverse range of skills and experience. In pursuing this aim, we want our workforce to value and to be at ease with its own diversity.

Although we accept all of our responsibilities under current legislation, our aim is to build on the confines of the law to provide equality of opportunity for all. We will continue to formulate and implement policies to that end.

Responsibility

Every employee has a moral and legal responsibility to promote equal treatment within the Company and to respect its diversity. Overall responsibility for working with our staff in support of these aims lies with the Directors, closely supported by the Managers.

All staff are responsible for ensuring that their actions are carried out in accordance with this policy. They may be held personally to account should their actions fall short of the requirements of this policy in any way.

Applicability

This Policy covers all aspects of employment, including advertisements, recruitment, induction, pay, conditions of service, staff development, change management, promotions, grievance and disciplinary procedures and assessment. It applies also to relationships with suppliers, service users and contractors. The Policy applies to the treatment of potential as well as existing employees.

Equal Opportunities

We are committed to an active equal opportunity policy.

It is our policy to promote an environment free from discrimination, harassment, and victimisation where everyone will receive equal treatment regardless of:

  • Age
  • Gender
  • Disability
  • Sexual Orientation
  • Colour
  • National Origin
  • Race
  • Political Opinions
  • Marital Status
  • Religious Beliefs
  • Hours of Work

All decisions relating to employment practices will be objective, free from bias, and based solely on work criteria and individual merit. In every set of circumstances, we aim to find the 'best fit' between personal requirements and business needs.
