This diversity policy sets out how we comply with the spirit and intentions of the law relating to equal opportunities and diversity.
Carter Bond Solicitors is committed to diversity in the workforce to reflect the population as a whole and is further committed to equal opportunities.
Carter Bond Solicitors may change this policy from time to time by updating this page. You should check this page from time to time to ensure that you are happy with any changes. This policy is effective from June 2016
How we collect the diversity information:
Around September of each year we distribute unmarked copies of a questionnaire which all staff within Carter Bond Solicitors are invited to complete anonymously if they prefer.
Those forms are returned to the Data Controller who then collates that data and enters the data into a summary page. That summary page is then approved by the directors and then published on the website. During the approval process, we look to see if there are any unusual clusters or whether our summary data indicates that we are not diverse enough etc.
Appropriate action is thereafter taken to remedy any anomalies by training and further monitoring. We do not positively discriminate at this stage but if our diversity starts to cause us concern, we will review that policy decision.
Diversity in the workplace:
Carter Bond Solicitors has adopted equality, diversity and inclusion as core values and places all its policy development in the context of the objectives of:
• ensuring that all individuals who deal with Carter Bond Solicitors, whether as employees, clients or in other capacities, are treated with dignity and respect;
• ensuring that the opportunities Carter Bond Solicitors provides for learning, personal development and employment are made available on a non-discriminatory basis; and
• providing a safe, supportive and welcoming environment for employees, clients and visitors.
The objective is to integrate the principles of equal treatment and promotion of diversity into all aspects of Carter Bond Solicitors.
