Creating a diverse business is not only the right thing to do, it helps us to become the kind of global business we want to be. Our ‘reaching for balance’ diversity strategy aims to accelerate our workforce balance at all levels.
We are committed to eliminating discrimination and encouraging equality and diversity in all of our business activities, including the provision of services and employment. This commitment underpins all our policies and practices. We seek to maintain a positive working environment in which we respect each other – our people, clients and suppliers.
It is our policy to ensure that there shall be no discrimination or less favourable treatment of any person because of gender, sexual orientation, marital or civil partner status, gender reassignment, race, religion or belief, colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin, disability (both physical and mental), age, pregnancy or trade union membership, or the fact they are a part-time worker or a fixed-term employee.
This applies to all who work at ISG, and also equally applies to the treatment by our people of our supply chain, applicants, visitors and clients, as well as the treatment of our people by these third parties.
We are committed to engaging, promoting, and training our people on the basis of their capabilities, qualifications and experience, without discrimination. We will also avoid unlawful discrimination in all aspects of employment, including recruitment, promotion learning and development, transfer opportunities, conditions of service, pay and benefits, health and safety, grievance and disciplinary procedures and termination of employment, including redundancy.
All employees will receive an equal opportunity to progress within ISG; it is in our interests to ensure the business has access to the widest possible labour market.
We will not tolerate direct or indirect discrimination, victimisation or harassment, whether intentional or unintentional. In the event of any of the above occurring, disciplinary action will be taken, which may result in dismissal.
To support our equality and diversity objectives we will be open and transparent and commit to reporting our performance
