At Sociability, we are deeply committed to cultivating an inclusive diverse work environment. We believe that a diversity of perspectives, experiences, and backgrounds not only enriches our workplace but is also critical to our success.

  • Disability

  • Age

  • Gender identity, expression or reassignment

  • Sexual orientation

  • Race

  • National origin

  • Pregnancy

  • Marital Status

  • Religion or Beliefs

  • Veteran status

Our commitment

A culture of equity and inclusion

  • We strive to build and maintain an inclusive, empathetic and collaborative culture where individual differences and contributions are recognised and valued.

  • In forging partnerships and expanding our business community, we actively seek organisations that genuinely share our values of equity and inclusion.

Zero tolerance

  • We do not tolerate discrimination, harassment or abuse of any type. This is reflected throughout our company policies, including our Employee Expectations and Code of Conduct, Disciplinary Procedure, and Grievances Procedure.

  • We take any complaints of discrimination, bullying, harassment, or victimisation very seriously. Such acts will be dealt with promptly as misconduct under our Disciplinary Procedure.

Equal opportunities

  • We make all employment decisions, including recruitment, development, progression, compensation, and termination, purely on merit.

  • We strive to provide a workplace that is accessible to and inclusive of everyone. Reasonable accommodations will be made where required to enable everyone to perform essential job functions and participate fully in company activities.

  • Our recruitment processes are also designed to be accessible and equitable to all applicants:

    • We use blind recruitment methods, as far as possible.

    • We strive to ensure our recruitment processes and tools are as accessible as possible.

    • Enquiring about reasonable adjustments is part of the recruitment process, and accommodations will be provided upon request for applicants during the process.

Monitoring and review
  • As with all our company policies, we will review and assess the effectiveness of this policy at least every 2 years.

  • We also periodically review our employment practices and procedures to ensure fairness.
