Equality & Diversity

Purcon embraces the importance of promoting equality and diversity from both a moral and a commercial perspective. We believe that a company that fails to promote diversity may detrimentally reduce the pool of talent from which it can draw and loses competitive advantage.

We believe that diversity is critical to the success of both our clients and ourselves. A breadth of talent, opinion, judgment and experience within any organisation enables it to be more creative and to challenge existing thinking, delivering more innovatively and gaining competitive advantage.

Our commitment to diversity is at every level of our own organisation. We value diversity in ethnicity, disability, gender, language, age, sexual orientation, religion, socio-economic status, political persuasion, childcare needs, flexible working requirements, experience and education. We aim to ensure that employees are treated fairly, evaluated objectively and enabled to succeed. Our responsibility to our clients is to support them to make diversity a reality in their organisations. We are committed to ensuring that we provide our clients with choice and are continuing to find ways to improve the creativity with which we tackle assignments. We actively create networks with organisations that assist us in sourcing more diverse candidates and recognise that a successful organisation depends upon the insight of its people.

The company is committed to providing a working environment in which employees are able to realise their full potential and to contribute to business success irrespective of their gender, race, disability, religion or sexual orientation. This is a key employment value to which all employees are expected to give their support. In order to create these conditions, the company is committed to identifying and eliminating discriminatory practices, procedures, and attitudes throughout the organisation. The company expects employees to support this practice. Specifically, the company aims to ensure that no employee or job applicant is discriminated against, either directly or indirectly, on the grounds of:

  • Gender
  • Race
  • Religion or belief
  • Disability
  • Sexual orientation

Promoting equality of opportunity means that everyone is treated solely on the basis of competence and merit, regardless of gender, parental or marital status, ethnic or national origin, race, age, religion, sexual orientation, disability or any other criteria not specifically related to potential skills and abilities. Purcon endeavours to provide a working environment free from unlawful discrimination, harassment or victimisation on the above grounds. This applies in the recruitment, selection, employment conditions, training and promotion of all Purcon employees and extends to the service it provides through its employment agency operations.
