Inclusion & Belonging

Be yourself. We like it that way.

Our people are not only important to our success at Kent, they are our success. And we’re building our business with Inclusion and Belonging at the core. We want to get this right for everyone within our walls and within our community.

How uninspiring would it be if we employed people who all fitted into a cookie-cutter profile? So, from the leadership team down, we strive for a diverse and inclusive work environment where co-workers feel valued and recognised for their uniqueness and where inclusiveness is a reflex, not an initiative. Our aim is for Kent to be a place where people can thrive just being themselves. Where there is a common sense of belonging that transcends any role, business unit, language or country. We know through experience that different ideas, perspectives and backgrounds create a stronger and more creative work environment that delivers better results.
