Diversity and inclusion

A workplace that works for all

A workplace that works for all

A progressive organisation operating in a sector that has been traditionally male-oriented, we’ve already made great strides towards becoming a more diverse organisation.

As an organisation, we’re actively engaged in initiatives that promote a career in logistics to those in other under-represented groups. This means looking at issues beyond recruitment practices, and considering how factors such as scheduling and working patterns can play a part in encouraging and enabling more people to enjoy careers that fit with their lifestyles.

We recognise and embrace the benefits that a diverse workforce brings to our business and support our colleagues with equality and diversity training. We continue to support Everywoman, an organisation dedicated to developing female talent and advancing women in business, and also actively participate in logistics forums to highlight the opportunities that exist in the sector for women.

We have also used our ongoing work with schools to promote logistics as a career option; showing the variety and opportunity that the industry offers to logistics professionals of the future. During the months ahead, we’ll continue to finalise unconscious bias training so that all our people have the awareness and tools to support the recruitment and development of individuals from all backgrounds and walks of life.
