Recruitment

Recruitment of staff and freelance partners is carried out by the process outlined in the page Join Us and its linked documents.  Suitably qualified candidates are interviewed by the chief executive and others if necessary.  References are taken up.  If accepted, a company email address is given, use of which implies acceptance of the partner agreement.

For further detail see Partner Recruitment, Induction and Training.

Development

Staff development is central to the company.  A formal meeting with each member of staff is carried out at least annually to review performance and plan development.

Diversity

The company does not discriminate for any purposes on the grounds of age, sex, religion, ethnicity, disability or sexual orientation.

Disciplinary procedure

Any breach of employment contracts or partner agreements, poor standard of performance or behaviour in work may result in a disciplinary process.  As far as possible such matters will be resolved informally, but due process may be invoked by the chief executive if necessary.

Grievances and bullying

Bullying is not tolerated in any relationships within the company or with suppliers and customers.  Any grievance or concern over bullying shall be raised with the chief executive. If the plaintiff requests an external arbiter, a suitable neutral person will be agreed.
