Northbank Talent Management – Inclusivity Policy
We are committed to ensuring equality of opportunity for all clients, job applicants and staff regardless of age, disability, gender reassignment, marital or civil partner status, pregnancy or maternity leave, race, colour, nationality or ethnic or national origins, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation (collectively referred to in this policy as protected characteristics).
We welcome diversity on our client list and in our workforce. We aim to ensure that our clients and workers achieve their full potential and that all representation and employment decisions are taken without reference to irrelevant or discriminatory criteria.
Accordingly, we recognise and seek to fulfil our obligations under equality law. In summary, these obligations require the application of the principle of equal opportunities at all stages of the employment relationship and make it unlawful to discriminate because of any protected characteristic or because a member of staff works part time or is a fixed term employee or is a trade union member.
All staff have a duty to act in accordance with this policy and to treat clients, customers, suppliers and colleagues with dignity at all times, and not to discriminate against clients, customers, suppliers or other members of staff.
This policy is for guidance only and does not form part of any contract of representation or employment. The policy covers all individuals represented by or working for us irrespective of their status, level or grade, including all employees, managers, directors, interns, contractors, casual and agency staff.
We will continue to review the effectiveness of this policy to ensure it is achieving its objectives.
