Equality & Diversity Policies
The Chief Executive Officer and the Executive Committee is committed to providing services and fair treatment to all sections of the community. We will, as a group, also implement and maintain employment practices that ensure no employee or potential employee is treated unfavourably because of their sex, sexual orientation, marital status, race, colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin, religion, age, disability or any other grounds which cannot be justified, either in job related terms or as a requirement of law.
The Group acknowledges that successful equalities strategies need the commitment of managers and the co-operation of employees and this will be achieved by a programme of action to develop employment practices and fair service provision.
Procedures will be monitored and reviewed to ensure that discrimination, either direct or indirect, cannot go undiscovered. This Group will not tolerate discriminatory practices.
This document should be read in conjunction with the Groups Equality & Diversity Policy and forms part of the induction process. Employees should be directed to the intranet to view these policies in full.
Group policy is to provide equal opportunities in recruitment, training and promotion whatever the race, colour, ethnic or national origin, religion, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, political beliefs, membership or non-membership of a trade union or disability of an employee, having regard to the individuals aptitudes and abilities and the requirements of the job.
