Providing equal opportunities to all and valuing and celebrating our diversity is central to our inclusive culture. We recognise that each employee brings their own unique capabilities, experiences and characteristics to their work and we value this diversity at all levels of the company in all that we do.
At Godwinson Property Inventory, we want every member of our staff to be able to contribute to the business to the best of their capacity. We believe that we can only achieve this if everyone is included, respected, valued and supported. We are committed to eliminating discrimination amongst our staff, with clients and suppliers and will look for opportunities to maximise diversity and inclusion.
We will comply with all legislation, standards, statutory and other obligations and best practices which are relevant to our activities and the jurisdictions in which we operate. We are committed to the application of equality legislation, in principle and practice, and will not discriminate on any of the grounds or protected characterisation identified in equality legislation relevant to the jurisdictions in which we work.
Notification of a breach or potential breach of this policy will be reported to senior management and may be escalated to the Chair of the company Board.
