Equality and diversity
We are committed to creating a culture that values dignity at work, mutual respect and inclusivity, where diversity is embedded in all business activities, unlawful discrimination is eliminated and individuals can achieve their potential.
We aim to:
- attract and retain high quality staff
- increase the representation of those from minority groups throughout our organisation
