DIVERSITY & INCLUSION POLICY STATEMENT

Staff Shop Inc.

Introduction

  1. DIVERSITY & INCLUSION POLICY
    Staff Shop’s goal is to provide equal employment opportunities for all candidates and employees.
    Staff Shop Inc. is dedicated to encouraging a supportive and inclusive culture amongst the whole workforce. It is within
    our best interest to promote diversity and eliminate discrimination in the workplace.

    Our aim is to ensure all employees and job applicants are given equal opportunity and that our organization is
    representative of all sections of society. Each employee will be respected and valued and able to give his or her best as a
    result.

    This policy reinforces our commitment to providing equality and fairness to all in our employment and not provide less
    favourable facilities or treatment on the grounds of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership,
    pregnancy and maternity, race, ethnic origin, colour, nationality, national origin, religion or belief, or sex and sexual
    orientation.

    We are opposed to all forms of unlawful and unfair discrimination. All employees, no matter whether they are part-time,
    full-time or temporary, will be treated fairly and with respect. When the Staff Shop Inc. selects candidates for
    employment, promotion, training or any other benefit, it will be on the basis of their aptitude and ability.

    All employees will be given help and encouragement to develop their full potential and utilize their unique talents.
    Therefore, the skills and resources of our organization will be fully utilized, and we will maximize the efficiency of our
    whole workforce.
