At Hanover we're committed to being inclusive, and this is central to everything we do.
We’re passionate about providing a great service to our customers, but also about preparing well for the future. We want to be a place that attracts a wide range of people who bring a mix of experience and lifestyles with them.
As part of our commitment to being an inclusive employer:
- We’ve improved our ranking on the Stonewall Workplace Equality Index
- We’ve introduced groundbreaking training by actors on equality and diversity for managers
- We’ve increased awareness of the range of disabilities, including mental health, which can affect people
- We’ve increased our statistics on the diversity characteristics of staff to well over 95% of all staff members
Because we're a dispersed organisation with a number of offices and estates, our network of Inclusive Ambassadors is there to help if you have questions about issues to do with equality and diversity. They also lead on good practice and on challenging behaviour that doesn’t reflect our values.
In line with our commitment to being inclusive we have our ‘Rainbow Network’, our group for LGBT staff. Our objectives include providing support for LGBT staff, and we aim to increase understanding across Hanover of the challenges faced by LGBT people. The Rainbow Network is open to all LGBT staff, and we encourage our teams to formulate other groups to promote awareness of diversity.
