Equality, Inclusion & Diversity Policy
Chamberlain Doors Limited is committed to the principle of equal opportunity and diversity in employment.
The terms equality, inclusion and diversity are at the heart of this policy. “Equality” means ensuring everyone has the same opportunities to fulfil their potential free from discrimination. “Inclusion” means ensuring everyone feels comfortable to be themselves at work and feels the worth of their contribution. “Diversity” means the celebration of individual differences amongst the workforce. We will actively support diversity and inclusion and ensure that all our employees are valued and treated with dignity and respect. We want to encourage everyone in our business to reach their potential.
We value people as individuals with diverse opinions, cultures, lifestyles and circumstances. All job applicants, employees and workers are covered by this policy and it applies to all areas of employment including recruitment, selection, training, career development and promotion.
Management will ensure that recruitment, selection, training, development and promotion procedures result in no job applicant or employee receiving less favourable treatment because of a protected characteristic i.e. race, colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin, religion or belief, disability, trade union membership or non-membership, sex, sexual orientation, pregnancy and maternity, gender reassignment, marriage/civil partnership, age, or on the basis of being a part time or fixed term worker.
The Organisation’s objective is to ensure that individuals are selected promoted and otherwise treated solely on the basis of their relevant aptitudes, skills and abilities.
Management has the primary responsibility for successfully meeting these objectives by:
- Not discriminating in the course of employment against employees or job applicants
- Not including or attempting to induce others to practise unlawful discrimination and
- Bringing to the attention of employees that they will be subject to action under the Disciplinary Procedure for unlawful discrimination of any kind
Employees can contribute by:
- Not discriminating against fellow employees, customers, suppliers or members of the public with whom you come into contact during the course of your duties
- Not inducting or attempting to induce others to practise unlawful discrimination and
- Reporting any discriminatory action to a Senior Manager
The successful achievement of these objectives necessitates a contribution from everyone and you have an obligation to report any act of discrimination known to you.
If you consider that you are a victim of unlawful discrimination you may raise the issue through the Grievance Procedure.
