Diversity & Inclusion
At Barnett Waddingham, we want to have a diverse and inclusive workforce as we believe that having a clear policy will provide us with high performing teams that will be the driving force behind our continued success.
An essential part of this is developing teams who give and welcome different opinions, perspectives and cultural reference; bringing a real richness in our day to day activities, which will achieve better business results, for both ourselves and for our clients. It will also enable us to access a wider talent pool without any boundaries or bias.
We define diversity and inclusion in the following ways:
Diversity is about differences
At Barnett Waddingham we recognise, respect and value individual differences and in doing so we aim to maximise this through positive interactions which will help us deliver the best for our clients through an enhanced diversity of thought. Differences may include gender, background, education, religion, ethnicity or sexual orientation. It is the individual that matters and the skills they bring to our organisation.
Inclusion is about embracing these differences for the future of the company
We have created an environment where all our people feel valued and respected, where people give their best. No member of staff should feel excluded from any activity because of their own background.
