Our Diversity & Inclusion Promise
Alfred is committed to promoting equal opportunities and inclusion in the workplace both as an employer and as a provider of services. We understand that diversity and inclusion at work is about recognising and appreciating that every individual is different.
We ensure that everyone, whether a candidate seeking work through Alfred or one of our own employees is valued and respected and that their selection for recruitment; training or promotion is always based on professional merit. Our employees and our candidates are assessed objectively: only their skills, qualifications and experience are considered in the recruitment process.
At Alfred, it is essential to the success of our business globally that we appreciate and add value to the markets we recruit into on behalf of our clients. We are determined to lead the way within the recruitment industry in diversity and inclusion and work closely with our clients to ensure we source and recruit from a truly diverse talent pool. This enables us to support their diversity strategies and provide them with the best possible candidates for the roles they are seeking to fill.
Within Alfred we are continually developing our understanding of, and approach to, sustaining an inclusive working environment. We are committed to promoting inclusion and ensuring that the people we employ feel valued. This is Open Page; the intrinsic value of Alfred that all individuals are different and are recognised and appreciated for this.
We have built diversity and inclusion content into all training programmes and have rolled out initiatives regarding gender, parenting and sexual orientation. We are also working with our internal resourcing department to ensure greater emphasis is placed on ensuring a wider representation of candidates from racial and ethnic minorities.
Our current monitoring data shows that Alfred consistently attracts an equal gender split and that we place an equal number of male and female candidates.
Alfred store and process all data in line with the Data Protection Act 1998. The statistics generated from our surveys are used with the sole purpose of monitoring the diversity of our candidates and employees, and to identify any areas of diversity & inclusion, which may need to be improved.
