Equality, diversity and inclusion

DES is committed to eliminating discrimination and encouraging equality and diversity in all of our business activities, including the provision of services and employment. This commitment to diversity underpins all our policies and practice. The Company seeks to maintain a positive working environment in which we respect each other, our employees, clients and suppliers.

What we believe

Equality

We believe that everybody should be treated impartially and given a fair chance.

Diversity

We value individual differences. We aim to create an inclusive, nurturing environment where everybody can achieve their potential. This strengthens our company values and encourages innovation through sharing different perspectives and ideas.

Inclusion

We know that positive social change takes actions, not words. That’s why we work to improve social inclusion and close the opportunity gap through work experience, apprenticeship and recruitment programmes. This supports wider society and our work community, and means that we recruit the best people for the job.

Respect

As well as treating people fairly and being supportive of people’s differences, we insist on respect for everyone. Our policy of continual development and internal promotion benefits everyone: people, teams, clients and communities.

Investing in our people

We invest in training to help everyone to develop to their full potential, and we make sure that our employees have the knowledge and experience they need to progress in DES.

By encouraging people to learn and improve their skills, and promoting internally, we support succession planning for our future business.
