Equality & diversity

We believe all employees should enjoy equality of opportunity, advancing purely on their merits and abilities.

Our global policy on equality of opportunity and diversity sets the standard for a positive working environment that respects an 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 we recruit and promote employees on merit, providing fair and just rewards for all our workers. We do not tolerate harassment or bullying of any kind and recognise the need for effective communication and consultation with employees.

We recognise an employee’s rights to freedom of assembly, association and collective bargaining. However, as an organisation we pride ourselves on our open-door policy. Our employees are continually encouraged to provide feedback and make representation to senior management through individual, team and staff meetings.

We value diversity and believe in equality of opportunity.
