Equal opportunities and diversity
We are committed to creating a working environment where there is mutual trust and where everyone is accountable for their own actions and takes full responsibility for the performance and reputation of the business.
We are committed to positive employment policies to promote equal opportunity in employment regardless of:
- sexual orientation
- marital status
- ethnic origin
- or disability
As an equal opportunities employer we do not discriminate on any grounds other than ability to carry out the task. Our philosophy is to ensure that ability, contribution to the business and potential to develop are the determining factors in the selection, training, career development and promotion of all employees.
Our reputation is built on the quality and professionalism of our people, so creating a truly diverse environment with no barriers to achievement is integral to our business strategy. dotDigitalGroup plc is committed to providing a working environment in which employees are able to realise their full potential and to contribute to its business success irrespective of their gender, race, disability, sexual orientation, marital status, part time status, age, religion or belief. This is a key employment value to which all employees are expected to give their support.
In order to create conditions in which this goal can be realised, we are committed to identifying and eliminating unlawful discriminatory practices, procedures and attitudes throughout the dotDigitalGroup plc. We expect employees to support this commitment and to assist in its realisation in all possible ways.
Specifically, the dotDigitalGroup plc aims to ensure that no employee or candidate is subject to unlawful discrimination, either directly or indirectly, on the grounds of gender, race (including colour, nationality or ethnic origin), disability, sexual orientation, marital status, part time status, age, religion or belief. This commitment applies to all aspects of employment, including:
- recruitment and selection, including advertisements, job descriptions, interview and selection procedures;
- training; promotion and career development opportunities;
- terms and conditions of employment, and access to employment related benefits and facilities;
- grievance handling and the application of disciplinary procedures; and
- selection for redundancy
Equal opportunities practice is developing constantly as social attitudes and legislation change. We will keep our policies under review and will implement changes where these could improve equality of opportunity. This commitment applies to all of the dotDigitalGroup's employment policies and procedures, not just those specifically connected with equal opportunities.
