We maintain a zero-tolerance policy towards abuse, intimidation, or discrimination. We provide a safe and respectful work environment where every individual is treated with dignity and professionalism.

We are committed to reducing our environmental impact and promoting sustainability. Together, we strive for a greener future.


Freedom of association and choice

We support employees' rights to join associations of their choice and make employment decisions freely. We respect individual rights, including the freedom to leave a job after providing reasonable notice.


Health and safety

We prioritise the health and safety of our employees. We maintain a safe and clean workplace, provide regular training, and appoint a Health and Safety representative to oversee employee wellbeing.


Wages and benefits

We ensure fair and timely payments to our employees. We provide written employment terms, wage statements, and protect against unwarranted pay reductions or deductions.



We support whistleblowing and protect those who report misconduct and we take prompt action to address concerns, ensuring a culture of integrity and transparency.


Working hours

We maintain accurate records, offer optional overtime, and do not exploit home working, fixed term or bank contracts or apprenticeships to avoid employment obligations. We communicate contract termination terms transparently, fostering a balanced and respectful work environment for our employees.
