EDI Policy

Equality, Diversity And Inclusion (“EDI”) Policy

Effective date: January 1, 2023

Introduction

It covers discrimination on the basis of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion and/or belief, sex or sexual orientation as set out in the Equality Act 2010.

SEO Careers recognizes that there can be differences between the physical sex and gender assigned at birth and an individual’s gender identity/expression; therefore, this policy also covers discrimination on the basis of a person’s gender identity.

This policy should be read in conjunction with the Equal Opportunities Policy.

Commitment

SEO Careers expects all members of its staff and wider community to treat others equitably, with dignity and respect. Anyone who believes they have been discriminated against, harassed or bullied has the right to make a complaint free from victimization or fear of retaliation. Please refer to staff and candidate policies for the appropriate procedure to follow.

We will assess the impact of this Policy by monitoring as follows: The People & Culture director will collect and analyze monitoring data on staff and report this information annually to the Executive Management Team. The Quality and Standards Department will coordinate the collection and analysis of candidate monitoring data. The Marketing Team will put in place and maintain measures to ensure that, as far as possible, SEO Careers content is created in line with the provisions set out in this policy.
