At Veritech we are pleased to have a diverse workforce.
We expect everyone to treat each other with dignity and respect, and we do not tolerate unfair or discriminatory behaviour.
Please be considerate, fair and polite. Do not make assumptions based on things like someone’s age, gender, race or background. Having a laugh at work is great, as long as everyone is in on the joke.
- Fairness: being unbiased and treating people according to their needs.
- Inclusion: not making anyone feel left out or unwanted. We all have unconscious biases: try to be aware of the way your assumptions might impact on other people.
- Respect: valuing the different skills different people bring to the team. Everyone has a different point of view, and sometimes the people who are least similar can teach us most.
If you have any questions, please ask your line manager, or our FIR (fairness, inclusion and respect) ambassador trained by the Supply Chain Sustainability School, Mr Paul Oldridge (MD).
Be aware of your language and behaviour. Avoid making someone else feeling left out or uncomfortable. Remember that a joke you find funny could upset someone else.
If you see or experience behaviour that makes you feel uncomfortable, please tell your manager, or report it, so that we can do something about it.
As an ambassador, Paul speaks out to encourage respectful language and behaviour. The Supply Chain Sustainability School has created this excellent two-minute YouTube video – FIR on site: why it matters and how to achieve it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_fBePoQD1wk
