The purpose of ‘Managing Diversity’ is a more effective way of dealing with equal opportunities issues. It emphasises the business and personal benefits that accrue from valuing the differences between people, rather than just complying with the law. Caulmert Limited is committed to protecting the dignity of all Employees, visitors, temporary contractors and agency workers.
Employees will be made aware of the various behaviours and barriers that discrimination can take, during their Induction Programme. This will enable them to understand the negative impact that such behaviours and barriers can have on the Company, its employees, customers, suppliers and other major stakeholders.
Caulmert Limited recognises that to work effectively Employees need an environment in which they are respected and valued for their contributions to work, irrespective of their sex, martial, parental or partnership, status, race, ethnic or national origin, colour, disability, sexuality, religion or belief, or age.
Caulmert Limited has a duty of care to all Employees and all visitors to our site. All Employees, and especially those who have responsibility for others, share this duty of care. Employees should treat others with respect, courtesy and consideration at all times.
Appropriate behaviour is fostered by a workplace culture, which encourages positive, supportive and open interactions. Such behaviour will help to promote good working relationships and a positive working atmosphere.
Responsibility for the adoption, implementation and monitoring of this policy will lie with the Managing Director who will delegate day to day responsibility to the General Manager, Human Resources. However, all Employees of the Company have a responsibility to act and work within the scope of the policy.
Any complaints of bullying, victimisation or harassment should be pursued through the Grievance Procedure.
Acts of bullying, harassment and victimisation will be viewed seriously and treated as matters for disciplinary action, which will be pursued through the disciplinary procedure.
