HiDef Aerial Surveying Limited (“HiDef”) is committed to ensuring equality and diversity.
We promote a culture that actively values difference and embraces the fact that people from different backgrounds and experiences bring valuable insights to the workplace and enhance the way we work.
HiDef aims to be an inclusive organisation, where diversity is valued, respected and built upon, with ability to recruit and retain a diverse workforce. Within this framework HiDef specifically refers to measures it has in place to provide equality of opportunity and the facilities that it can provide to its workforce and job applicants.
HiDef is committed to compliance with all relevant equality legislation, the Equality Act 2010 (“the Equality Act”), Codes of Practice and best practice guidance. Our policy pursues and builds on the statutory position to ensure effective policies and practice of promoting equality.
HiDef aims to pro-actively tackle discrimination and disadvantage and aims to ensure that no individual or group is directly or indirectly discriminated against for any reason with regard to employment or accessing its services.
However, HiDef is also mindful of the provision in discrimination law for the rare circumstances when an organisation may need to justify discrimination rather than have a disproportionate effect. This could be, for instance, where there is a conflict with other legislation that HiDef has to comply with or between service needs. In such circumstances HiDef is committed to following the required proper assessment and objective justification of any decision in order to demonstrate that the provision, criterion or practice is a proportionate means of achieving a legitimate aim.
