Equality, Diversity & Inclusion (ED&I)
Invisibles come in all shapes and sizes, and that’s how we like it. We measure people by what they deliver - not where they’re from, what gender they are or how they identify!
Everyone is treated equally in all areas, from opportunities and progress to performance management. We ask all of our staff members to respect this and if you ever think someone is out of line, it’s important to speak up so that we can sort it out quickly.
We don’t tolerate discrimination or harassment of any kind.
The company policy is to treat all applicants, candidates, third parties and employees in the same way, regardless of sex, marital and/or civil partnership status, pregnancy or maternity, sexual orientation, religion or belief, gender re-assignment (whatever stage a person is at in the process), race (including colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin), age and disability.
The ED&I policy applies at all times and should influence the way that you treat your colleagues, clients, candidates, visitors, third parties and contacts.
We treat direct or indirect discrimination, victimisation, harassment and bullying relating to any of the above as a very serious matter. This also covers discrimination by association (e.g. where someone is discriminated against because they care for a disabled person) or by perception (e.g. where someone is discriminated against because they’re perceived to be gay, even if they’re not).
If you display any behaviour like this, you’ll be subject to our Disciplinary Procedure. These acts constitute gross misconduct and, unless there are mitigating circumstances, will result in summary dismissal.
If you think that you’ve received treatment contrary to our ED&I policy, please pursue your complaint through the Grievance Procedure.
