Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI)

Building an Inclusive Culture: Our Commitments to Diversity and Support at The Briars Group

We are excited to announce our renewed and strengthened commitment to building an inclusive culture where every individual feels valued, respected, and supported. At The Briars Group, we believe that diversity is a fundamental strength that enriches our workplace, drives innovation, and enhances our ability to serve our clients. We want to share our commitments to fostering an environment that celebrates and supports employees from different backgrounds.

  • Embracing Diversity: We recognise that diversity encompasses a broad range of attributes, including but not limited to race, ethnicity, gender, age, sexual orientation, religion, physical ability, and socio-economic background. We are committed to embracing diversity in all its forms, appreciating the unique perspectives and experiences that each individual brings to the table.
  • Inclusive Hiring and Advancement: We are dedicated to ensuring that our hiring and advancement processes are fair and unbiased. We will actively seek diverse talent and provide equal opportunities for career growth and development. By fostering an inclusive workplace, we strive to attract and retain top talent from all backgrounds, promoting a richer and more representative workforce.
  • Education and Awareness: We understand that building an inclusive culture requires ongoing education and awareness. We are committed to providing training and resources to our employees, promoting understanding and empathy, and challenging biases and stereotypes. Through workshops, seminars, and open dialogues, we will create opportunities for learning and personal growth, fostering a culture of respect and acceptance.
  • Employee Resource Groups (ERGs): We will establish Employee Resource Groups to provide safe spaces for employees to connect, share experiences, and contribute to the development of our inclusive culture. These ERGs will be employee-led and will focus on specific aspects of diversity, allowing individuals to find community and support within our organization.
  • Supportive Policies and Practices: We will review and update our policies and practices to ensure they are inclusive and respectful of diverse needs. This includes implementing flexible work arrangements, accommodating religious and cultural observances, and providing accessible facilities and technologies. We aim to create an environment where everyone can bring their whole selves to work and thrive.
  • Partnership with External Organisations: We will actively seek partnerships with external organisations and communities that align with our values and commitments. By collaborating with these organisations, we will leverage their expertise to continuously improve our inclusivity initiatives and contribute to broader societal change.

We believe that by fostering an inclusive culture, we create an environment where every individual feels empowered to contribute their unique perspectives and talents. We are committed to listening, learning, and evolving as we work together to build a more inclusive future.

Thank you for being a part of our journey towards a stronger and more diverse Briars Group.
