Our Diversity and Inclusion Policy describes our commitment to become more diverse and inclusive, and our recognition of its importance to our business. Our Board approves our measurable objectives for diversity each year, and monitors progress towards achieving them.

We employ a diverse mix of people from different backgrounds, and our main focus is on moving towards more balanced gender representation and ethnically diverse teams, both in leadership roles and in the workforce overall. We are also committed to creating the conditions that will help us achieve greater diversity beyond gender and ethnicity.

There are many ways we can help to encourage and increase the diversity and inclusiveness of our workplaces, and we have introduced several. We look forward to making further progress in this area, and we congratulate all our people on the advances made so far.

For example, we have introduced a number of flexible work options as part of promoting an inclusive workplace, including compressed working hours and working remotely. These arrangements help our people balance their work and non-work responsibilities, and are available to everyone regardless of gender.

Our Parental Leave provisions don’t just meet but, and often exceed, our legal obligations relating to parental leave. This contributes to making us more attractive as an employer for both men and women.

And we stand by our Code of Business Conduct commitment to equality in employment practices, including zero tolerance for harassment or bullying and our expectations of all employees in this regard.
