DIVERSITY AND EQUALITY POLICY
Haley Bridge LTD is committed to promoting diversity and equality of opportunity for all its staff, workers, contractors and job applicants. We aim to create a working environment in which all individuals can make best use of their skills, free from discrimination, harassment or victimisation and in which all decisions are based on merit. Haley Bridge LTD recognises that promoting equal opportunities and diversity in the workplace goes beyond effective management practice and makes good business sense.
We do not discriminate against staff based on age, disability, gender reassignment, marital or civil partner status, pregnancy or maternity, race, colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation (“protected characteristics”).
We aim to ensure that no job applicant suffers discrimination because of any of the protected characteristics above. We take steps to ensure that our vacancies are advertised to a diverse labour market.
Our recruitment procedures are reviewed regularly to ensure that individuals are treated based on their relevant merits and abilities. Job selection criteria are regularly reviewed to ensure that they are essential for the effective performance of the job and therefore not disproportionate on discriminatory grounds. Shortlisting of applicants will be done by more than one person wherever possible. Through appropriate training we will do our best to ensure that staff making selection decisions will not discriminate whether consciously or unconsciously in making these decisions.
The principles of non-discrimination and equality of opportunity also apply to the way in which Haley Bridge LTD and its staff treat visitors, clients, customers, suppliers and former staff members.
Haley Bridge LTD works in conjunction with its business contacts to ensure that they adopt a similar approach to equality and diversity. Haley Bridge LTD expects its business contacts, including clients and users of this site, to treat all its employees, workers, contractors and/or other clients with dignity and respect. Haley Bridge LTD will not tolerate any acts or omissions amounting to discrimination or harassment of any of its employees, job candidates, workers, contractors, clients or any other individuals with which it associates.
