A Fair Working Place
We are strongly committed to ensuring that equality of opportunity, valuing diversity and culture of inclusivity are key principles in our business. We have a legal duty to eliminate discrimination, advance equality of opportunities for all and work hard to foster good relations between people representing different groups. Put simply, we want to make sure everyone gets a Fair Deal.
We work to do our best to treat everyone with fairness regardless of their background and support both our colleagues and customers to succeed in what they want to achieve. Our duty includes standing up against prejudice, intolerance and acting when people are bullied or harassed. Our organisation communicates a zero tolerance approach to discriminatory attitudes or practice from colleagues, partners, contractors, suppliers, customers and from individuals in the communities in which we work.
We aim to build a workforce that reflects the communities we work with. We always recruit and retain the most talented people for any role, regardless of age, disability, gender identity and gender expression, race, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation. We have diversity staff groups that help us to develop a culture of inclusivity.
Our HR policies also support inclusivity with a family friendly approach to flexible working and a zero tolerance to any kind of harassment, bullying, victimising or discrimination.
