Equal Opportunities Policy

Policy statement

Equal Opportunities is not about treating everyone the same. It is about recognising that people have different needs and that some people suffer more disadvantage and discrimination than others. WrightWay Digital Ltd is committed to building a workforce which is valued because its diversity reflects the community it serves, enabling it to deliver the best possible service to that community.


WrightWay Digital Ltd is committed to the fair treatment of all people, regardless of their gender, race, colour, ethnicity, ethnic or national origin, citizenship, religion, disability, mental health needs, age, domestic circumstances, social class, sexuality, beliefs, political allegiance or trades union membership. WrightWay Digital Ltd is firmly opposed to any discrimination based on these human characteristics and values.


When unfair discrimination occurs it will be taken very seriously and may result in formal action being taken, including disciplinary action. Equality and diversity must be part of everything that WrightWay Digital Ltd does. WrightWay Digital Ltd recognises that adverse institutionalised practices exist, either by deliberate design or through neglect, and will monitor, audit and implement action plans to challenge these practices where they occur. These will be formally reported to the Directors and externally through the annual report and other mechanisms.
