Diversity Report

  1. Diversity Report

We are committed to promoting equality and diversity and recognise the benefits of a diverse workforce. We seek to employ the best person for a role regardless of race, gender, religion or any other parameter and promote a working environment free from any form of discrimination or victimisation on any grounds.

 

We periodically monitor the diversity profile of our team through an anonymous collection of data. During this we gather statistics on age, gender, ethnicity, disability, faith, sexual orientation, socio-economic backgrounds and caring responsibilities.

 

The following is a summary of responses to the ‘Diversity Data Collection Questionnaire’ distributed to staff in June 2016.

 

This questionnaire was obtained from the ICAEW website.
