PEOPLE AND OUR CULTURE Diversity and equality We are keen to encourage diversity. The house building industry is not known for being the most diverse or gender equal and there is often a lack of candidates for certain roles from diverse backgrounds. We now have two female Regional Managing Directors and our approach to identifying and developing our talent will continue our focus in this important area. We now also have our first female Executive Board member. There is still more to do however and as a company we take the role of promoting the industry to potential candidates who might not have considered a career in our sector very seriously. We work closely with education providers and community groups to profile the variety of roles available. We also focus on family friendly changes such as meeting start times to support our employees with children. Over the last 12 months our Agile Working Policy has supported our people with working remotely at home and in different locations during the COVID-19 pandemic and continues to make a significant contribution to helping us to successfully steer the business through a period of unprecedented challenges. Disability statement The Group is committed to achieving a balanced and diverse workforce and pursues an equal opportunities policy through all areas including recruitment and selection, training and development, performance reviews, succession planning, promotion and ultimately, retirement. It is our policy to ensure employee related decisions are made based on merit and capability regardless of religion, race, nationality, ethnic origin, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, age or disability. If any of our people become disabled, the Group is committed to continue employment wherever possible and to undertake the necessary adjustments to facilitate ongoing employment. Modern Slavery Act 2015 The Group has a policy statement in accordance with the requirements of the Modern Slavery Act 2015. Our policy sets out the processes and practices that we have implemented, to ensure that modern slavery has no place to survive within our business, or within our supply chain. We monitor the effectiveness and review the implementation of this policy, regularly considering its suitability, adequacy and effectiveness.
