We want to make sure that equality, diversity and inclusion are part of our culture, and that our services and our careers make a difference to the wide range of people we help – and work with.
So, we’re creating a workplace experience where fairness and respect are a huge part of everything we do, from initial recruitment and equality of opportunity, through to learning and development, appraisals, performance management, recognition, development and promotion.
And that’s reflected in the fair and respectful culture we’re building for the service users, partners and suppliers we work with, too.
So, how do we demonstrate this through our recruitment processes?
Ban the Box
MTC is signed up to the Ban the Box campaign. A campaign run by Business in the Community (BITC), calling on UK employers to give people with criminal convictions a fair chance to compete for jobs by removing ‘tick boxes’ and asking about past criminal convictions at a later stage in the recruitment process.
Employers who sign up to Ban the Box are challenged to find ways to support individuals with lived experience of the justice system to work for them, rather than creating barriers to those individuals transforming their lives. And we do just that, reviewing and improving our processes regularly to make them as inclusive as possible.
Disability Confident Committed
MTC is also a disability confident employer. We are committed to recognising the talents disabled people bring to our organisation and by displaying our badge with pride, we'll show we recognise the value that employing a diverse employee group can bring to our business. We are part of the movement to create a time to change, encouraging people to think differently about disability and take action to improve how we recruit, retain and develop disabled people.
