Equal Opportunities Policy

April 2024 - v1.0

Dodgems and Floss Ltd is dedicated to providing a work environment that promotes equality, diversity, and inclusion.

We believe that everyone deserves equal opportunities regardless of their race, ethnicity, gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, religion, or any other characteristic protected by law. Discrimination, harassment, and unfair treatment have no place in our workplace.

Our Equal Opportunities Policy outlines the following principles:

  • Equal Treatment: We treat all employees, job applicants, clients, and stakeholders fairly and with respect. We do not discriminate on the basis of protected characteristics in any aspect of employment, including recruitment, selection, promotion, training, compensation, and termination.
  • Diversity and Inclusion: We value and embrace diversity in all its forms, including diversity of thought, background, and experience. We strive to create an inclusive work environment where everyone feels welcome, valued, and able to contribute their unique perspectives and talents.
  • Recruitment and Selection: We base recruitment and selection decisions solely on merit, qualifications, and suitability for the role. We actively seek to attract a diverse pool of candidates and eliminate biases from our hiring processes.
  • Training and Development: We provide equal access to training, development opportunities, and career advancement for all employees, regardless of their background or characteristics. We invest in diversity and inclusion training to raise awareness and foster a culture of respect and understanding.
  • Prevention of Harassment and Discrimination: We prohibit all forms of harassment, discrimination, and victimisation in the workplace. This includes but is not limited to harassment based on race, gender, sexual orientation, disability, religion, or age. We have procedures in place for reporting and addressing complaints of harassment or discrimination promptly and confidentially.
  • Reasonable Adjustments: We make reasonable adjustments to accommodate employees with disabilities or special needs to ensure they can perform their job duties effectively and participate fully in the workplace.
  • Promoting Equality: We actively promote equality and diversity both within our organisation and in our interactions with clients, suppliers, and the wider community. We seek to challenge stereotypes, biases, and barriers to inclusion wherever they may exist.
  • Monitoring and Review: We regularly monitor and review our Equal Opportunities Policy and practices to identify areas for improvement and ensure compliance with applicable laws and regulations. We engage with employees and stakeholders to gather feedback and assess the effectiveness of our diversity and inclusion initiatives.

By adhering to our Equal Opportunities Policy, Dodgems and Floss reaffirms its commitment to creating a fair, inclusive, and respectful work environment where everyone has the opportunity to thrive and succeed based on their abilities and contributions.
