Diversity & Opportunity
We value diversity and value employees from varied backgrounds as they enrich our culture and support our commercial success.
Our diversity practice helps us to attract the best people to Cadbury and allows us to reflect the diversity of the world around us better - our consumer base and the communities in which we operate. We aim to reflect diversity in both our workforce and in our leadership teams. Through a culture of inclusiveness, we also aim to inspire the best in our people, earn their trust, increase their engagement and promote pride in our company.
Our Equal Employment Opportunities & Diversity Policy emphasises that we recruit and promote employees on the basis of their suitability for the job without discriminating on grounds of gender, race, ethnic or national origin, colour, religion, marital status, age, sexual orientation, disability, social class and political association. We have clear procedures to promote and monitor diversity and the Board receives regular reports on progress and how best practice is shared across the group.
At the Fridgefactory, diversity means difference and variety. It describes the distinct and original qualities that each individual brings.
Inclusiveness describes a workplace climate where all colleagues feel empowered to bring a rich variety of approaches to achieve business results.
The Purpose of the policy is to attract and recruit diverse candidates, selecting the best people available for the positions based on performance criteria making the most effective use of the talents and experience of people in the business, providing them with the opportunity to develop and realise their employment potential while acting in a fair and equitable manner with employees and potential employees and, as a result, earning a good reputation internally and in the communities in which we do business ensuring legal compliance, locally and internationally, operating in line with our framework of internal Minimum Standards, and Human Rights and Ethical Trading policy, while taking account of local societal and cultural variations while educating employees on the value of diversity.
