Equality and Diversity Policy

Talent Bank is committed to equal opportunities and eliminating all forms of discrimination, harassment and victimisation in the workplace. We aim to encourage, value and manage diversity and it is our wish to have a workforce that is representative of the communities from which it is drawn to secure the widest pool of talent possible.

Accordingly, all employees, workers, job applicants, ex-employees will be treated equally and will not be discriminated on the grounds of sex, marital/civil partnership status, race, colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin, disability, religion or belief, sexual orientation, age, pregnancy or maternity.

All employees, whether part-time, full time, temporary or fixed term will be treated fairly and with respect. Selection for employment, promotion, training or any other benefits will be on the basis of aptitude and ability. We will ensure equality of opportunity and that no unlawful discrimination will operate in any areas of the workplace including:

  • Recruitment, selection and offers of employment
  • Training, development, appraisal, promotion, transfer
  • Terms and conditions of employment, benefits and facilities
  • Day to day treatment of employees or workers
  • Disciplinary and grievance procedures
  • Resignations, dismissals and appeals procedures

Our commitment is to create an environment in which individual differences and the contributions of all our staff are recognised and valued. All staff are entitled to a working environment that promotes dignity and respect to all. No form of intimidation, bullying and harassment will be tolerated.

All members of staff have a shared responsibility to ensure that the Equality and Diversity Policy is adhered to and to promote a positive working environment.

Any breaches of this policy will be deemed as misconduct and will be dealt with through the disciplinary procedures.

Should any member of staff believe that he/she has been discriminated against they should raise the issue under the grievance procedure.

We will review all our employment practice and procedures to ensure fairness.

 

This policy will be monitored and reviewed annually.
