Equal Opportunity Policy

Adapt UK Ltd and Ergosquad UK Ltd are Equal Opportunities employers and it is our policy that all persons should have equal opportunity for employment and advancement on the basis of their ability, qualifications and suitability to do a job.

The aim of the policy is to ensure that no job applicant or employee receives less favourable treatment on the grounds of colour, creed, race or ethnic origin, sexual orientation, religion, age, marital status, disability or is disadvantaged by conditions or requirements which cannot be shown to be justified.

The Companies will additionally continue their commitment to fair treatment by practising on a day to day basis such employment policies as will ensure equal access to selection, promotion, training and fringe benefits.

The Company will achieve its objectives by:

  • Ensuring that there is no unlawful discrimination, direct or indirect against any person whether in recruitment, selection, training, promotion or any aspect of employment;
  • Recognising its lawful obligations;
  • Periodically reviewing and monitoring its recruitment and selection procedures to maintain systems where individuals are selected, promoted and treated solely on the basis of merits and abilities which are appropriate to the job;
  • Providing facilities for any employees who believe that inequitable treatment has applied within the scope of this policy, to raise the matter through the Company’s Grievance Procedure.

Ethical Sourcing Policy

At Adapt we constantly strive to be:
  • Understanding our supply chains, including health and safety, environmental, labour and human rights issues.
  • Expecting responsible behaviour, as well as quality and value.
  • Working with suppliers to make improvements, where their practices fall short of our expectations.
  • Withdrawing from contracts where improvement is impossible.
  • Respecting suppliers’ confidential information and running fair selection processes.
  • Making payments in accordance with our contractual commitments.

Under the ethical, social and environmental criteria, suppliers are assessed, among other things, on:

  • Compliance with relevant legislation and regulations.
  • Use of energy and other natural resources.
  • Respect for confidentiality.
  • Whether they have a civic and responsible attitude.
  • Whether they have principles for action defining their commitments and priorities.
  • Whether they have an environment policy.

These assessments are reviewed jointly with our suppliers and lead to an improvement plan being drawn up if necessary.

Adapt’s policy is to seek to purchase goods and services which:

  • Are produced and delivered under conditions that do not involve the abuse or exploitation of any persons;
  • Have the least negative impact on the environment.
