Equality and diversity


Employee diversity

We are committed to providing a working environment in which employees feel valued and respected and able to contribute to the success of the business, and to employing a workforce that recognises the diversity of its customers.

We invest in management training to ensure managers are equipped to support fair working practices and in educating all employees to ensure the policy is fully embedded.

Our aim is that employees should be able to work in an environment free from discrimination, harassment and bullying, and that employees, job applicants, customers, retailers, business introducers and suppliers should be treated fairly regardless of:

  • race, colour, nationality (including citizenship), ethnic or national origins
  • gender, sexual orientation, marital or family status
  • religious or political beliefs or affiliations
  • disability, impairment or age
  • real or suspected infection with HIV/AIDS; or
  • membership of a trade union

and that they should not be disadvantaged by unjust or unfair conditions or requirements.

We aim to ensure that applications for employment from people with disabilities and other under-represented groups are given full and fair consideration and that all employees have access to the same training, development and job opportunities.

We make every effort to retrain and support employees who suffer from disabilities during their employment, including the provision of flexible working to assist their return to work.
