Diversity in the workplace

In order to prosper as a global business and deliver for our people, investors, partners and the communities in which we invest - we embrace a diverse and inclusive work environment.

We believe that variety of viewpoints and personal experiences, along with broad professional expertise, lead to better decisions, are critical to innovation and provide a competitive advantage in our marketplace.

At InfraRed we are committed to promoting a welcoming, highperforming culture where all team members are encouraged to embrace and leverage each other’s talents. We strive to create conditions which enable people with diverse backgrounds and insights to work openly, respectfully and collaboratively so that our employees feel valued, regardless of their differences, and are able to achieve their full potential.

We believe that fully embracing diversity is critical to our continued success. It is not ‘a nice to have’, it is the only way

Our Diversity & Inclusion initiatives

We manage a range of initiatives to progress our diversity objectives. We are striving to embed inclusion and diversity principles across all stages of the employee experience, from the recruitment process, to professional development, performance monitoring and retention.

RECRUITMENT

We are searching for people from a diverse range of backgrounds and communities to attract the widest breadth of talent, skills and outlook.

We recruit a diverse workforce through: (i) a ‘name-blind’ recruitment process which supports assessment of candidates on merit and not on their background, race or gender; (ii) ensuring a diverse team of panellists to conduct interviews; (iii) providing stringent talent search requirements to recruitment agencies; (iv) carrying out ‘unconscious bias training’ for line managers; (v) looking beyond standard search pools when recruiting new talent.

DEVELOPMENT & RETENTION

We promote diversity and inclusion not only through recruitment but also in matters of our corporate culture and development of our team members.

We continue to invest in developing and retaining our talent through programmes such as (i) management training programme; (ii) supporting the implementation of mentoring and sponsorship programs targeting women; (iii) introducing a ‘Return to work’ programme; (iv) monitoring promotion across the group.

ACCOUNTABILITY

We believe that leadership commitment and accountability is critical to drive change and make diversity and inclusion progress.

To that end we have raised our accountability for diversity and inclusion at InfraRed with the leadership team having a goal of achieving a fully diverse and inclusive environment for all staff as one of their personal objectives.
