Vacman Cleaning aims to be an equal opportunity employer, and has a policy
for this purpose.
This policy covers all aspects of employment, from vacancy advertising,
selection recruitment and training to conditions of service and reasons for
termination of employment.
To ensure that this policy is operating effectively (and for no other
purpose) Vacman maintains records of employees' and applicants' racial
origins, gender and disability.
Ongoing monitoring and regular analysis of such records provide the basis
for appropriate action to eliminate unlawful direct and indirect
discrimination and promote equality of opportunity.
Vacman's long term aim is that the composition of our workforce should
reflect that of the community. Timetabled targets will be set for groups in
the community that are identified as being underrepresented in the
workforce. Where necessary, special steps, as permitted by the relevant Acts
of Parliament, will be taken to help disadvantaged and/or underrepresented
groups to compete for jobs on a genuine basis of equality.
The company's Equal Opportunities Policy, and the measures to implement it,
have been devised on the basis of advice from the relevant bodies as well as
in consultation with appropriate union and/or employee representatives.
To demnstrate the importance that we place upon equal opportunity the
managing director of Vacman is responsible for the effective operation of
the company's EOEP.
