Diversity & Equality Policy
Essential Information Group strives to recruit and retain only the most committed and talented individuals, regardless of their background. Our recruitment, training and promotion processes will be carried out solely based on job specifications and the individuals’ ability to fulfil the role. Our work environment ensures that all employees are treated fairly and with a consistent level of respect, with regards to the nine ‘protected characteristics’ laid out by The Equality Act 2010. These are:
- Sexual Orientation
- Religion or Belief
- Gender Reassignment
- Marriage and Civil Partnership
- Pregnancy & Maternity
All members of staff are trained and made aware of their rights and responsibilities under the equality policy, as well as made aware of their opportunities for training and development to maximise their role within the company. There is no form of discrimination that will be tolerated within EIG, and any breach of this policy will be considered a misconduct and result in specific disciplinary actions.
