Equality and diversity

We believe all employees should enjoy equality of opportunity, advancing purely on merit and ability.

Our Group-wide policy on equality and diversity sets the standard for a positive working environment, respecting every individual’s personal dignity.

We categorically oppose all forms of unlawful or unfair discrimination on the basis of sex, gender, disability, race (including colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin or creed), marital or civil partner status, age, sexual orientation, belief or employment status.

We value diversity and recruit and promote employees on merit, providing fair and just rewards for all our employees. We do not tolerate harassment or bullying of any kind and encourage effective communication and consultation across the business.

We recognise employees’ right to freedom of assembly, association and collective bargaining. However, as a Company we pride ourselves on an open-door policy. Employees are continually encouraged to provide feedback and make representation through individual, team and all staff meetings.
