Equal Opportunities Policy
Our SkyBlue Equal Opportunities policy helps promote equal opportunity and complies with all relevant current legislation and codes of practice. To ensure that this policy is applied consistently we take active steps to monitor its effectiveness.
Each SkyBlue Diversity Champion ranges from a Resourcer to a Consultant or a Team Leader. Each champion has been trained on the current legislation and regulations such as the Agency Workers Regulations (AWR) and works with local partners to ensure local people get local jobs in support of the Governments Welfare to Work Scheme.
The Diversity Champions play a vital role in building cohesive, long-lasting relationships with our customers embracing and delivering diversity in the workplace. This role is set up to provide a route to delivering and implementing our equality and diversity strategy at a local level and across the UK.
All staff complete both the SkyBlue Induction which covers an ‘Introduction to SkyBlue Equality and Diversity’ and attend yearly training on Equality and Diversity. This training ensures all staff adhere to the SkyBlue Equal Opportunities policy and meet current legislation.
