Diversity and Equality Policy
John Venn & Sons is firmly committed to diversity and equality in all areas of its operations.
We are committed to promoting equality of opportunity in our business and with clients and other organisations with which we work. We recognise that the strength of the business is built on the understanding of individual strengths and differences and seek to respect these.
We seek to ensure that our organisation respects and includes everyone, and that no client or prospective client, supplier or prospective supplier, employee, temporary worker or job applicant receives less favourable treatment on the basis of:
- Disability and/or medical conditions
- Marital status
- Race, language, ethnic or national origins
- Religious belief
- Responsibilities for care of dependants
- Sex (including gender reassignment)
- Sexual orientation
- Trade Union membership and/or political views or affiliations
We recognise that there may be areas where people experience discrimination and we will work towards an anti-discriminatory environment, based on open discussions with employees, clients, suppliers and others on perceptions of discrimination.
We further recognise that discrimination can be direct or indirect, and take place at both institutional and personal levels. We believe that such discrimination is unacceptable and we are committed to providing equality of opportunity for all by eliminating unwarranted and inappropriate discrimination. We will do this by ensuring that our practices reflect relevant legislation and good practice.
The success of this policy relies on the support and understanding of all our employees. We all have a responsibility not to be offensive to clients, suppliers or colleagues or to participate in or condone harassment or unlawful discrimination of any kind.
