Diversity and inclusion
To help us achieve our business objectives, create better cultural awareness, understanding and communication, a diverse workforce is essential.
Diversity enables us to achieve competitive advantage by expanding and developing the pool of talent on which we can draw. Growth depends not only on the ability to attract the best workforce but also to foster, support and retain those employees. We work in diverse markets and with diverse clients and a workforce that is representative of our clients enables us to better understand their business needs.
We are committed to providing equal opportunities in employment and to providing a workplace which is free from discrimination and harassment. This means that all job applicants, employees and partners will receive equal treatment regardless of race, colour, ethnic or national origins, gender, marriage, civil partnership, disability, gender reassignment, pregnancy, age, sexual orientation, religion or belief.
Our diversity and inclusion policy underpins all other HR policies regarding the equal treatment of employees. We are committed to providing equal opportunities in employment and to providing a workplace which fosters the development of the individual and is free from discrimination, harassment and bullying, where everyone is treated with dignity and respect. Our values provide the foundation for our diversity and inclusion policy and describe our culture and personality, the way we work and what we stand for.
To ensure the continuous promotion of our diversity at work policy, the practice has a diversity and inclusion committee representing every office. These committees review the work being undertaken within the diversity arena and ensures that we promote and manage a culture which values the differences that all employees and communities bring to our business.
