We are proud to announce that we have joined The Valuable 500, the global movement putting disability on our business agenda.
During October 2020 the Group ran an internal communications drive highlighting the importance of diversity and inclusion in all our businesses. This included communications on colleague stories and highlighted the importance of diversity and inclusion in all our businesses.
As part of our ongoing strategy to improve diversity, the Group launched a diversity action team with representatives from each of the Group’s businesses focusing on four key areas: gender, ethnicity, disability and LGBTQI+. The purpose of these groups is to support the businesses and encourage an inclusive culture that promotes diversity.
Monitoring the pay between men and women is an important step to ensuring that all colleagues are fairly rewarded for their work and their contribution to our business.
The Group has signed the Social Mobility Pledge, a campaign aimed at increasing social mobility through outreach, access to opportunities and recruitment practices.
We are committed to recruiting, retaining and advancing talent from diverse ethnic and racial backgrounds and helping them thrive in the workplace.
