Equality in the workplace is essential whether you have two or hundreds of employees. Everyone deserves to work in an environment free from victimisation, harassment, discrimination, and bullying. This is why at Nectar we have made it our purpose to keep current with all the relevant policies and practices to ensure an unbiased environment. In recognition of our commitment, in particular to gender equality and family friendly measures at the place of work and in the access to and the provision of goods and services, the National Commission for the Promotion of Equality (NCPE) has fully certified and awarded our organisation the mark of equality.
Embracing good equality practices benefits not only the individual but the company as a whole. It is a given that teams functioning within an unbiased environment are more likely to have positive working relationships, healthier synergies, are more productive and less likely to seek change. Perhaps, a less obvious advantage which is as beneficial lies in the fact that a heterogeneous staff often equates to a more expansive network. A diverse organisation appeals to a wider audience. Today we not only facilitate equality but also hire people from all walks of life to improve diversity.
Ultimately, a workplace that embraces equality produces a constructive outcome. Nectar remains committed to retain and improve on the guiding principles which made this certification possible.
