The right to be treated without discrimination
We not only consider our staff to be our greatest asset, but also aim to offer every one of our employees, at all levels of the business, the training, opportunities, motivation and rewards for them to be the best they can be in their careers.
We are constantly looking to attract the perfect mix of skills, talent and diversity.
We are proud of our Equal Opportunities Policy. We monitor the effectiveness of this by asking all candidates to complete a (completely confidential) equal opportunities form, and use the data gathered in our ongoing commitments to fair practices and recruitment policy.
Support for staff who experience anxiety, depression or other mental health conditions
GWP Group are proud to take part in the National Health Service (NHS) “Mindful Employer” initiative. Developed, led and supported by employers, the aim is to increase awareness of mental health at work as well as providing support for businesses in recruiting and retaining staff.
There are numerous mental health issues that can affect employees. Stress, depression and anxiety are believed to result in more lost working days in the UK than any other forms of illness.
The overall cost of this to employers, through lost production and staff turnover, is estimated at approximately £30 billion per annum.
Taking steps to improve the management and recognition of mental health in the workplace should enable at least 30% of this cost to be saved – up to a potential £9 billion a year. Certain research has also shown that a spend of 80p on health promotion and intervention can save £4 in costs incurred due to absenteeism and the requirement for temporary staff.
With the right support, people with mental health issues can and do stay in work. This is support GWP always strive to offer.
