Diversity Policy

Multi-cultural internal team, and instill a non-discriminative approach to both internal and external hiring

This is addressed in induction training programs and through focusing on identifying candidates with the relevant skills and ability to perform a set role.

We are committed to seeking out and retaining the finest talent to ensure top business growth and performance for Empiric and its clients. Diversity management benefits individuals, teams, clients and our company as a whole. We recognise that each employee brings their own unique capabilities, experiences and characteristics to their work. We value such diversity at all levels of the company.

We believe in treating everyone with respect and dignity. We strive to create and foster a supportive and understanding environment in which all individuals realise their maximum potential within the company, regardless of their differences. We are committed to employing the best people to do the best job possible. The diverse capabilities that reside within our talented teams, allows us to anticipate and fulfil the needs of our diverse clients globally, providing a high quality talented pool of candidates.

Our diversity encompasses differences in;

  • Ethnicity

Career development and promotion

We reward excellence and all employees are promoted on the basis of their performance. All managers are trained in managing diversity to ensure that employees are treated fairly and evaluated objectively.

Community programmes

We recognise that there are distinct demographic groups that have long been disadvantaged.

We are committed to tackling cultural stereotypes both within and outside our company. We have clear reporting procedures for any type of discrimination or harassment combined with follow-up procedures to prevent future incidents.
