EMPLOYEE EQUAL OPPORTUNITY POLICY
Staff Shop Inc.
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 celebrate diversity and eliminate discrimination in the workplace. For us, success is being deliberate about providing equal opportunities, so that people are free from barriers that prevent them from competing on their own merit. It is not about enforcing equal outcomes or implementing preferential treatment for any group.
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 candidate and 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 processes, and not provide more or less favourable facilities or treatment on the grounds of age, disability, medical history, 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.
