Third Party Links & Services –
Watford & Essex Ltd is committed to supporting diversity and to creating an inclusive culture across all aspects of the Company’s operations, both on and offscreen, and to ensuring there is no discrimination within the Company;
We recognise the importance that equality legislation has to play in promoting equality and eliminating unlawful discrimination and our Equal Opportunities Policy clearly sets out our expectations for all equal opportunity matters and recognise the Equality Act’s protected characteristics of age, gender, gender reassignment, disability, marital status, nationality, national origin, race, ethnic origin, colour, religion, belief and sexual orientation.
The success of Watford & Essex is primarily down to the talented people we engage and work with. We understand that diversity across our entire workforce helps to support creativity and innovation: it is considered an essential ingredient for our continued success so that we are able to continue to develop, produce and distribute great content that global audiences want to watch.
We therefore want our workforce to be truly representative of all sections of society and our culture to be one in which individual uniqueness and difference is embraced, valued and respected. These differences include, but are not limited to gender, gender identity, pregnancy and maternity, ethnicity, age, physical and mental ability, sexual orientation, religion or belief or absence of religion or belief, marital and civil partnership status, education and those with a caring responsibility.
Watford & Essex also fully recognise that the culture and environment of our business needs to be inclusive, with no one left feeling as though they do not belong or are unable to do their best work due to their individual uniqueness. We aim to be a company where everyone feels respected and valued and able to give their best, and will not tolerate discrimination, prejudice, harassment or bullying in any form.
Any allegations of such will be dealt with seriously and in confidence and should be raised directly with the Chief Operating Officer.
