Our culture is one where you can be yourself. We think that if you bring your authentic self to work, then you will thrive, and we will too.
Building a diverse and inclusive culture doesn’t happen overnight though. It’s a journey that our people are part of. Take our People Forum for example. Employees can contribute to topics like race, identity, sexual orientation, belonging, disability and mental wellbeing. We encourage our people to meet across teams, share personal stories and understand different perspectives. It puts our people at the heart of shaping our inclusive workplace.
Supporting diversity initiatives such as Pride are part of our way of life here and we already have much to be proud of. Our Gender Pay Gap is similar to our peers and we actively look at ways to improve.
Our aspiration is to encourage everyone at Brit to be conscious advocates of inclusion and diversity. It is a very real business priority of ours. Together we will make this happen.
My job is to help us grasp opportunities, identify gaps and support Brit in delivering what we’ve committed to. It’s also about keeping the organisation honest. We want I&D to be integral to our DNA, and a core part of our culture; this is a guiding principle in how I approach my role.
We already do so many great things to drive and embed I&D; part of my ambition is to help and encourage Brit to do more and shout about it. We’ve said what we’ll do and have put the structures in place, so it’s now about making it happen."
We want Brit to be a place where inclusion and diversity really matter. We may not be perfect, but we’re working hard at building a supportive culture in which everyone feels valued and can flourish. It’s a great place to work, but don’t take my word for it. Hear it from our people instead.
