Our commitment to equal opportunities goes
beyond the creation of our policy. We recognise that
consistent and thorough implementation is key, so
much so that we have established a joint employee
/ management working party. A designated Equal
Opportunities Officer now has the responsibility of
co-ordinating activities on a day-to-day basis.
This implementation of policy is supported by
communication to ensure that all employees
(including new starters) are aware of their rights and
the company’s commitment to equal opportunities.
All employees will operate within the spirit and
intention of this policy. Failure to observe this policy
may result in disciplinary action.
The company will communicate with all contacts
in ways, which fully reflect the spirit and intention
of this policy. This Equal Opportunity Policy will
supplement all appropriate external documentation,
and be carried through to any dealings with external
suppliers and/or the general public.
All selection and development decisions will
be based on objective criteria and individual
merit. Appraisal and training documents will be
supplemented by this Equal Opportunity Policy.
Should any individual employed by the company feel
that they have been unfairly treated in connection
with this Equal Opportunity Policy they should follow
the grievance procedure.
Should any external candidate feel that they have
been unfairly treated in connection with this Equal
Opportunity Policy they should contact the Directors
