Hadson’s Commitment to Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion

At Hadson, we firmly believe that embracing and valuing diversity enhances our collective experience and contributes to the success of our organization. The varied perspectives, ideas, and ways of working that individuals from different backgrounds bring to the table foster growth, learning, innovation, and better decision-making. This commitment not only benefits our employees but also allows us to meet the diverse needs of our customer base effectively.

In alignment with our commitment to equality, diversity, and inclusion, we pledge to:

  1. Recognize and Value Individual Differences: Create an environment where the unique contributions of all team members are acknowledged and celebrated.
  2. Zero Tolerance for Unacceptable Behavior: Not tolerate any form of unacceptable behavior, harassment, discrimination, bullying (including cyberbullying), or victimization within our workforce or in the provision of our services.
  3. Provide Guidance and Training: Offer guidance and training on diversity, inclusion, and equality of opportunity to employees, contractors, trustees, and associates.
  4. Encourage Reporting and Addressing Concerns: Encourage individuals who experience or witness discrimination to report their concerns to their manager, People Group, or an Employee Forum or Trade Union representative.
  5. Promote Personal Responsibility: Make every person aware of their personal responsibility for implementing and promoting equal opportunities in their daily interactions, fostering a workplace where everyone is treated with dignity and respect.
  6. Regularly Review Employment Practices: Continuously review all employment practices, policies, and procedures to ensure compliance with our commitment to equality, diversity, and inclusion.
  7. Monitor Effectiveness and Share Information: Monitor the effectiveness of our commitment, policies, and procedures, and share the findings with consultative bodies at least annually.
