It’s as simple as that. At Kent, we want people to find a place they belong. A place that will keep them safe and make sure they’re OK and feel happy. A place that wants the best for their future.
We want our people to feel at home at Kent and comfortable enough to unleash their wonderful uniqueness and quirks, while knowing that they are celebrated and rewarded for their differences.
Our people are not only important to our success at Kent. They are our success. And we’re building our business with equality, diversity and inclusion at the core. We want to get this right for everyone within our walls and within our community.
We strive for an inclusive work environment where co-workers feel valued and recognised and where inclusivity is a reflex, not an initiative, and where diversity thrives as a result. We want people to thrive just being themselves with 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 culture. And that delivers even better results.
Ultimately, we believe our workforce should be representative of the communities in which we operate. That means we are free from discrimination or bias. Whether that is age, disability, sex, gender, marital status, race, religion or belief, sexual orientation, socio-economic background or neurodiversity.
