Michael Page is committed to promoting equal opportunities both as an employer and as a provider of services. We make every effort to prevent discrimination or other unfair treatment against any of our staff, potential staff or users of our services, regardless of gender, race, colour, nationality, ethnic or national origins, marital status, family circumstances, disability, sexual orientation, political or religious belief. Michael Page is opposed to all forms of discrimination and is committed to promoting equality in all aspects of our work.
Equal Opportunities in Staff Recruitment
Michael Page is committed to developing and maintaining working environments and practices which ensure equality in recruitment and selection. Discriminatory attitudes or behavior are unacceptable at any time and commitment to equal opportunities is a requirement of all our staff. Recruitment procedures are applied equally to internal and external applicants and all staff should have a genuinely equal opportunity to progress within Michael Page.
Equal Opportunity in the Provision of Services
Michael Page is committed to providing services which are relevant and accessible to all those who might wish to use them. Staff are required to be fully aware of their responsibilities in this respect and to ensure that systems of referral of our services do not operate to exclude or discourage participation, and that our employees are welcoming to all potential clients.
We recognize the critical importance of diversity in the workplace and strive to ensure that we submit a diverse range of candidates to our clients. We are committed to increasing the recognition of our brand amongst a more diverse audience through the development of an increasingly diverse database from which to select candidates for our clients. We aim to achieve this through a number of key strategies, including, but not limited to:
- Using media which accurately reflects diversity
- Creating inclusive advertising campaigns
- Fostering positive relationships with Indigenous communities
- Developing relationships with organizations actively promoting diversity
Responsibility for the Equal Opportunity Policy and Diversity
Michael Page's equal opportunities policy is the responsibility of every member of staff to apply. Those who hold supervisory, management or other senior positions have additional and particular responsibilities to ensure the effectiveness of its application and the commitment of all staff and others to it. Initiatives to ensure the effective promotion of our policies, and to measure their successes include:
- In-house and external training on diversity issues
- Monitoring of our database
- The diversification of our own workforce of consultants
