Diversity & Equality Statement
All companies of the Michael Bailey Associates Group are committed to promoting diversity and equality of opportunity for all their staff, workers, contractors and job applicants.
We aim to create a working environment in which all individuals are able to make best use of their skills, free from discrimination, harassment or victimisation and in which all decisions are based on merit. Michael Bailey Associates Group recognises that promoting equal opportunities and diversity in the workplace goes beyond effective management practice and makes good business sense.
We do not discriminate against staff on the basis of age, disability, gender reassignment, marital or civil partner status, pregnancy or maternity, race, colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation ("protected characteristics").
We aim to ensure that no job applicant suffers discrimination because of any of the protected characteristics above. We take steps to ensure that our vacancies are advertised to a diverse labour market.
Our recruitment procedures are reviewed regularly to ensure that individuals are treated on the basis of their relevant merits and abilities. Job selection criteria are regularly reviewed to ensure that they are essential for the effective performance of the job and therefore not disproportionate on discriminatory grounds. Shortlisting of applicants will be done by more than one person wherever possible. Through appropriate training we will do our best to ensure that staff making selection decisions will not discriminate whether consciously or unconsciously in making these decisions.
The principles of non-discrimination and equality of opportunity also apply to the way in which Michael Bailey Associates Group and its staff treat visitors, clients, customers, suppliers and former staff members.
Michael Bailey Associates Group works in conjunction with its business contacts to ensure that they adopt a similar approach to equality and diversity. Michael Bailey Associates Group expects its business contacts, including clients and users of this site, to treat all its employees, workers, contractors and/or other clients with dignity and respect. Michael Bailey Associates Group will not tolerate any acts or omissions amounting to discrimination or harassment of any of its employees, job candidates, workers, contractors, clients or any other individuals with which it associates.
