Equality and Diversity Policy
Cole Creative Communications Limited (CCC) is an equal opportunities employer.
Our aim is that our workforce (if large enough in numbers) could be truly representative of all sections of society and each employee feels respected and able to give of their best.
The purpose of this policy is to provide equality and fairness and not to discriminate on grounds of gender, marital status, race, ethnic origin, colour, nationality, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, religion or age.
All CCC employees will be treated fairly and with respect
- Selection for employment, promotion, training or any other benefit will be on the basis of aptitude and ability.
- All employees will be encouraged to develop their full potential.
- To create an environment in which individual differences and the contributions of all our staff are recognized and valued.
- Every employee is entitled to a working environment that promotes dignity and respect.
- No form of intimidation, bullying or harassment will be tolerated.
- Equality in the work place makes sound business sense.
No job applicant receives less favorable treatment on any of the grounds mentioned above, or is disadvantaged by conditions that are not essential for carrying out the job.
To ensure that such direct or indirect discrimination is not occurring:
Recruitment advertising and selection criteria for each post will be monitored to ensure that they do not unfairly discriminate against any racial, religious, gender, disability, lifestyle or age group.
Job qualifications or requirements which would have the effect of inhibiting applications from members of one or more of these groups will not be demanded or imposed except where they are justifiable in terms of the job to be done.
Candidates selected for interview will be asked in advance whether they have any special needs that the company should take into consideration or cater for, so as to equalize all candidates’ chances at interview as far as possible.
All those handling job applications and conducting interviews, appraisals and pay, training and promotion reviews will be aware of the principles of the Sex Discrimination Act, the Race Relations Act, the Disability Discrimination Act, the Employment Equality (Age) Regulations and other relevant legislation
Employee appraisals, pay reviews, training opportunities and promotion will be
based solely on the employee’s merits, abilities and performance.
Specialist recruitment consultants will be advised of CCC’s recruitment policy and third party advice will be sought to ensure that this policy is implemented as best practice.
This policy will be monitored and reviewed annually.
