Equality and Diversity: 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. 

You can find out more about Diversity and Inclusion at Platform in our PHG Diversity and Inclusion Strategy - Delivering through Diversity.pdf [pdf] 16MB

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.

What Our Employees Say About Working Here

"The fact I have been allowed and encouraged to actively promote LGBT inclusion as part of my involvement with the organisation's staff networks has made me feel welcomed and accepted as an openly gay member of staff."

When I became unwell with my mental health my manager was very supportive and understanding. I made use of the counselling sessions available through work, which I found extremely helpful. When I returned to work, small adjustments were made that allowed me to feel comfortable enough to continue my full job role. Since then my mental health has improved and because of my positive experience I have felt comfortable enough to open up to the whole company about my experience with mental health.”

Being able to work from home occasionally has given me the flexibility to strike my work/ life balance."

I feel fortunate to be able to work part time since returning from maternity leave and have always found there is flexibility to meet both my home and my work commitments."

Apprenticeships

We think that Apprenticeships are great. We truly believe in their power to inspire and launch amazing careers. 

That’s why we invest so much time and effort in everything we do around Apprenticeships: from ‘Try a Trade Days’, to work experience, to all of the work we do with schools - it’s all about giving people the opportunity to #BringYourBest

You will see from our Apprenticeship Strategy 2020-2025.pdf [pdf] 14MB that we are all about growth and ambition in this area and as we continue to add to our programmes and expand our business, we're confident we've got a lot of areas covered, whatever your interests and whatever your background.  The World of Housing probably offers more opportunities that you think!  Just take a look at the types of things our Apprentices get to do.

Here at Platform Housing Group, all our colleagues share a set of values and that’s what we look for in the people that join us.  Check out our values and see if they are a match for you – we hope they are!  An Apprenticeship with us gives you the opportunity to study for a recognised qualification, the chance to be a part of a growing and evolving organisation, along with a wealth of very practical and useful experience. All we can ask in return is that you #BringYourBest.

We are all set up to give our apprentices the skills, behaviours, experience and confidence to understand their individual purpose and to go out and make our communities a better place.  If that sounds like something you want to be a part of, then a Platform Apprenticeship could well be the route for you.  Please check out some of the things we get involved in and if you want to find out more, please contact Apprentices.Quals@platformhg.com.
