The Directors and Senior Management are equally committed to actively promote the value placed on the contribution that can be made by a diverse workforce to the organisation as a whole and to the continued development of a working culture in which fair treatment to all is the norm.  We believe that it is in the Company’s best interest and that of all those who work in it, to ensure that the human resources, talents and skills available throughout the community are considered when employment and/or training and development opportunities arise.  To this end, within the framework of the law, we are committed, wherever practicable, to achieving and maintaining a workforce, which broadly reflects the various communities in which we operate.

To achieve this, the Company will take steps to ensure that:

  • Individuals are treated equally and fairly;
  • Decisions on recruitment, selection, training, development, promotion and career management, workforce reduction, disciplinary and grievance issues and remuneration are based solely on objective and job related criteria;
  • Employees with any grievance feel confident that; the can raise the issue with the appropriate person; it will be dealt with fairly and equitably
