Equal opportunities

We treat everyone equally and embrace difference

What do we mean?

Equal opportunity in the workplace is about ensuring that everyone is treated the same, regardless of their differences. They are treated with dignity and respect and have equal access to opportunity. The criteria for employment and promotion are the same for everybody. Its purpose is to ensure fairness, act against all forms of discrimination and promote talent on merit.

We value difference and believe diversity of people, skills and abilities is a strength that helps us to achieve our best. We also believe everyone should be recruited and promoted on the basis of their personal ability, contribution and potential. We are committed to ensuring that everywhere across our organisation we promote, support and maintain a culture of fairness, respect and equal opportunity for all.
