Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Policy
At Volume Creative, we are committed to fostering a workplace culture that celebrates diversity, promotes equality, and prioritizes inclusion. We believe that embracing a wide range of perspectives, backgrounds, and experiences not only enriches our creative process but also strengthens our ability to deliver innovative and impactful design solutions. This policy outlines our commitment to equality, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) and sets forth our principles and practices to ensure that everyone at our agency is treated with respect, fairness, and dignity.
We provide equal opportunities to all individuals, regardless of their race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, disability, age, religion, or any other characteristic protected by UK law. We are committed to ensuring that our recruitment, employment, and project allocation processes are free from discrimination.
We will actively create an inclusive work environment where all employees feel valued, heard, and supported. We will provide reasonable accommodations for employees with disabilities and promote a culture of respect for different perspectives and backgrounds.
Diversity and Representation:
We will strive to reflect the diverse communities we serve within our workforce. This includes seeking diversity at all levels of our organisation, from entry-level positions to leadership roles. We will work to ensure that our design projects also reflect the rich tapestry of society.
Training and Awareness:
We provide regular training and development opportunities for our employees to raise awareness about EDI issues, unconscious bias, and micro-aggressions. We encourage open dialogue and self-reflection.
Anti-Harassment and Bullying:
We have a zero-tolerance policy for harassment, bullying, or any form of discrimination within our agency. We are committed to promptly addressing and investigating any complaints and taking appropriate action against those found responsible.
We provide flexible working arrangements, when possible, to accommodate the needs of our diverse workforce. This includes options for remote work, flexible hours, and parental leave.
Our leadership team is responsible for setting an example by promoting and embodying our EDI principles. They will also ensure that these principles are integrated into all aspects of our agency’s operations.
All employees have a responsibility to treat their colleagues, clients, and partners with respect and dignity, and to actively contribute to a culture of equality, diversity, and inclusion.
Our HR department is responsible for ensuring that EDI policies and procedures are effectively implemented and for providing support and guidance to employees on EDI matters.
Monitoring and Review
We are committed to regularly reviewing and evaluating our EDI policies and practices to ensure they are effective and aligned with our agency’s values. We will also seek feedback from our employees and stakeholders to identify areas for improvement.
At Volume Creative, we believe that diversity is our strength, and inclusion is our priority, and we are dedicated to creating a workplace where everyone feels empowered to contribute their unique talents and perspectives.
