Michelmores is committed to providing a working environment which promotes equality of opportunity for all. We are dedicated to providing high quality legal services for all sections of the community that make up our society today, and to be responsive to the specific needs required by our diverse range of clients. Michelmores values and respects this diversity and strives to ensure we embrace the differences we encounter.
In particular we:
- Recognise that everyone that the firm interacts with is an individual. It is the difference between people that is the source of creativity
- Acknowledge that best practice in this area cannot be achieved overnight. We actively seek out ways to learn from the business community, from our clients and our employees to ascertain how we can enhance what we do to promote and celebrate diversity
- Actively promote a policy and practice of equality and opportunity in employment for all, irrespective of their age, disability, gender, race, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation, marriage or civil partnership, pregnancy or maternity, all of which are "protected characteristics"
- Aim to create an environment in which people from all backgrounds can work together harmoniously, by combating prejudice, stereotyping, harassment and undignified and disrespectful behaviour
We regularly collect diversity data to allow us to monitor progress on our diversity and inclusion initiatives. View our 2015 diversity results survey, which was completed by 74% of our people.
The review and development of our diversity programme is the responsibility of Colette Stevens, our HR Director.
If you have a complaint about any aspect of our approach to Equality and Diversity, you should raise this in the first instance with the HR Director, who will ensure that your complaint is handled in accordance with our complaints procedure.
