Treating people fairly and valuing differences is implicit in everything the Federation does as an employer and a trade body. We're committed to developing an inclusive culture, which means we treat everyone with dignity, respect and fairness, regardless of protected characteristics such as age, disability, gender, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity/adoption, race (this includes colour, ethnic or national origin), religion or belief, sexual orientation or any other factors.
Our aim is to ensure that the Federation is well governed, has an excellent reputation and credibility, is financially robust and is a great place to work. This means being fair and transparent so that everyone has equal access to our services and work opportunities. Our workplace must remain free from discrimination, harassment, bullying or victimisation.
We believe that not everyone is the same, and therefore we have a moral responsibility to take into account different needs and capabilities wherever possible. Our responsibilities are not limited to meeting the law when it comes to how we treat people.
We don't tolerate unfair treatment and discrimination and expect everyone we work with to share our commitment to eliminating discrimination. We'll take prompt and strong action to deal with instances of unfair discrimination, bullying, harassment or victimisation by any individual or organisation connected with us.
