Equality & Diversity Policy

A diverse workforce demonstrates social responsibility and social awareness and enhances the ability of a business to be competitive and tap into new markets. Diversity is a key strategy to increase employee satisfaction, understand the needs of customers and find staff to fill skills gaps.

The Equality Act 2010 makes it against the law to discriminate against individuals based on age, disability and other protected characteristics. By introducing relevant policies – and creating a culture of inclusion – businesses can reap the commercial benefits of ensuring an equal and diverse workforce, including improving performance, building a good reputation, and attracting and keeping staff.
