Equality, Diversity & Inclusion
We commit to ensuring that equality and diversity are integrated at the core of our business and respond to the needs of our employees, workers, stakeholders and customers. By accessing, recruiting and developing people from the widest possible talent pool, we gain an insight into different communities. This allows us to generate greater creativity in supporting the diverse needs of our customers and the community.
We are committed to equality and valuing diversity within our workforce and with the volunteers who give their time to us. We expect everyone to understand and accept their personal responsibility to recognise and value differences and the unique contributions that people make to the way we deliver our services.
Our ED&I Forum
The ED&I Forum has been set up so that colleagues from across SBHG can express and feedback on their views on where we should be focusing when it comes to equality, diversity and inclusion. The forum acts as a working group where they will bring ideas to the table and work on implementing policy alongside the People and Culture team. The forum’s primary objective is to improve the culture, environment, processes and procedures that are in place at SBHG to ensure Equality, Diversity and Inclusion is part of our DNA.
