Techserve appreciates the value inherent in a diverse workforce. Diversity may result from a range of factors; origin, age, gender, race, cultural heritage, lifestyle, education, physical ability, appearance, language or other factors. We value the differences between people and the contribution these differences make to our business. We will actively manage diversity, finding ways of utilising the differences that exist, in order to improve our business. This requires that we actively and flexibly seek to accommodate the unique needs of many different employees.

Above all, we are committed to ensuring that all employees are treated with respect and dignity.

It is the responsibility of all managers to create an environment where:

  • There is tolerance of difference - Techserve will ensure that all employees are treated fairly and with respect and dignity.
  • The ability to contribute and access opportunities is based on merit- Techserve will adopt and actively encourage those practices and procedures that enable employees to contribute to the best of their ability.
  • Inappropriate attitudes or behaviours are confronted - Techserve will treat seriously any instance of inappropriate behaviour and confront attitudes based on inappropriate stereotypes.

Specifically, Techserve will provide equal opportunity in respect to employment and employment conditions, including:

  • Recruitment and selection;
  • Training;
  • Career advancement; and
  • Support.

Techserve is committed to supporting employees and managers in the achievement of a diverse workplace. Managers are responsible for developing and encouraging a positive environment, where all employees are treated with respect and dignity. Managers must take responsibility for reporting breaches of this policy, and should themselves act in accordance with its spirit.

To support managers and others, ongoing training and education in diversity, equal opportunity and harassment are available and the Human Resources Manager is also available to support managers and others achieve our objective of dignity at work.
