EQUALITY & DIVERSITY

Damaris Media is deeply committed to encouraging a supportive and inclusive culture. It is within our best interest to promote diversity and eliminate discrimination in our workplace. Our aim is to ensure that all team members and job applicants are given equal opportunity, and that our company is representative of all sections of society.

 

Each and every team member will be respected and valued, and will be able to give their best as a result. This policy reinforces our commitment to providing equality and fairness to all in our employment and not provide less favourable facilities or treatment on the grounds of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, ethnic origin, colour, nationality, national origin, religion or belief, or sex and sexual orientation.

 

We are opposed to all forms of unlawful and unfair discrimination.

All team members, no matter whether they are part-time, full-time, or temporary, will be treated fairly and with respect. When selecting candidates for employment, promotion, training, or any other benefit, it will be on the basis of their aptitude and ability. All team members will be given help and encouragement to develop their full potential and utilise their unique talents. Therefore, the skills and resources of our company will be fully utilised and we will maximise the efficiency of our whole team.

We commit ourselves - individually and collectively - to:

 

  • creating an environment in which individual differences and the contributions of all team members are recognised and valued 

  • creating a working environment that promotes dignity and respect for every team member

  • not tolerating any form of intimidation, bullying, or harassment, and to disciplining those that breach this policy

  • making training, development, and progression opportunities available to all team members

  • promoting equality in the workplace, which we believe is good management practice and makes sound business sense

  • encouraging anyone who feels they have been subject to discrimination to raise their concerns so we can apply corrective measures

  • encouraging team members to treat everyone with dignity and respect

  • reviewing regularly all our employment practices and procedures so that fairness is maintained at all times.

We will inform all team members that an equality and diversity policy is in operation and that they are obligated to comply with its requirements and promote fairness in the workplace. The policy will also be drawn to the attention of clients, partners, stakeholders and job applicants.

 

This equality and diversity policy is fully supported by our shareholders and senior management. It will be monitored and reviewed annually to ensure that equality and diversity is continually promoted in our workplace.
