Diversity & Equal Opportunities Statement

UKRD Group Limited recognises the benefits of a diverse workforce and is committed to providing a working environment that is free from discrimination.

The Company seeks to promote the principles of equality and diversity in all its dealings with employees, workers, job applicants, clients, customers, suppliers, contractors, recruitment agencies and the general public.

All employees and those who act on the Company’s behalf are required to adhere to this policy when undertaking their duties or when representing the Company in any other guise.

Unlawful discrimination of any kind in the working environment is not tolerated and the Company would take all necessary action to prevent its occurrence. Specifically, the Company aims to ensure that no employee or job applicant is subject to unlawful discrimination, either directly or indirectly, on the grounds of gender, race (including colour, nationality and ethnic origin), disability, sexual orientation, marital status, part-time status, age, religion or belief. This commitment applies to all aspects of employment, including:

• Recruitment
• 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
• Selection for redundancy

Equal opportunities practice is developing constantly as social attitudes and legislation change. The Company continually reviews all policies and implements necessary changes where these could improve equality of opportunity.
