Equity, Diversity & Inclusion (EDI)
At Response, we strive to create a fully accepting and celebratory culture of all our differences and uniqueness by providing opportunities to learn from each other.
We know a fundamental part of looking forward to showing up for work is knowing you can be yourself and being valued for what makes you you.
At Response, we are committed to promoting equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) in all aspects of our organisation. We recognise that creating a diverse and inclusive workforce is essential for our success and for providing the best possible service to our clients.
We understand that a diverse workforce brings various perspectives and experiences essential for innovation, creativity and problem-solving. We also recognise that everyone should have an equal opportunity to succeed, regardless of their background.
We have implemented several policies and practices that promote EDI in our recruitment process, workplace culture, and the provision of services, including:
- Providing training and development opportunities for our employees to learn about EDI and how to create an inclusive environment.
- Developing a robust recruitment process that ensures fairness, impartiality and diversity in our hiring decisions.
- Creating a workplace culture that values and respects diversity and encourages employees to bring their whole selves to work.
- Providing our services to clients from diverse backgrounds and creating a welcoming environment for all.
We are committed to continuously improving our EDI efforts and welcome colleague and client feedback. We believe that fostering an inclusive environment can create a better workplace for everyone and provide better services to our clients. We are proud to be an organisation that values diversity and inclusion and is committed to building an inclusive culture for all.
It’s vital that our workforce is representative of the diverse range of clients we support.
Analysing our data allows us to address underrepresentation among our client and colleague populations. Using the data will also give us an understanding of where we are currently and where we want to be.
