Diversity and inclusion
To harness our great diversity and enable all our employees to realise their potential, we encourage our businesses to create inclusive working environments. Tools including online cultural awareness training and cultural calendars are available to employees, and we encourage colleagues to seek, acknowledge and value differences. Robust policies are in place, which make it clear that we do not tolerate any form of discrimination. If employees believe they are unfairly treated we offer multiple channels for raising concerns, including our global reporting hotline, Speak Out.
The Group’s diversity metrics are reviewed regularly, and we take the opportunity to reach out to under-represented groups through our recruitment at all levels. Whilst security continues to be seen as a less attractive career opportunity for women, we are making progress in other areas of diversity. For example, we continue to receive recognition for the employment opportunities offered to military and law enforcement veterans.
