At Spirit Energy, our success depends on our people. They embody our vision, our values and are helping us create a culture of mutual trust and respect, where everyone’s contributions, skills and perspectives are valued.
AN INCLUSIVE CULTURE
Our success depends on diversity of talent, where our people bring the best of themselves to their roles. We make decisions regarding hiring, recruitment, development and promotion on the basis of individual capabilities in relation to the needs of our business, and promote an inclusive culture of sensitivity and respect. We aim to provide equal opportunities to all our employees and applicants, and do not tolerate any form of discrimination.
Spirit Energy is a signatory of the General Counsel Statement of Support for Diversity & Inclusion (D&I), further indication of our commitment to advancing D&I - not just within our own business, but through fostering the same values throughout the legal profession and broader business community too.
FAIR REWARD & RECOGNITION
We operate fair and transparent reward and recognition processes that are supportive of employment rights, development and fair wages, and comply with the laws on working hours and fair wages in the countries in which we operate.
HARASSMENT & BULLYING
We are committed to maintaining a workplace that is free from harassment, where we all feel comfortable coming to work. As set out in our policies, we prohibit any behaviour or conduct that may constitute harassment or bullying, and expect our business partners and third parties to share this commitment.
Wherever we work in the world, we respect and uphold the fundamental human rights and freedoms of everyone that works for us, with us, or lives in our local communities. We never knowingly cause or contribute to any activity or relationship that violates human rights, either directly or indirectly, and we will address adverse human rights impacts if they occur.
UK GENDER PAY GAP - 2019
Last year, we reported our UK Gender Pay Gap figures for the first time, setting a firm marker for the company. This year, although our gap still exists, we have seen a welcome improvement in some key areas. As well as our mean gender pay gap falling by five percentage points, we have also improved the proportion of females in some of our more senior roles.
We know there are still gains to go after and, with consistent effort, aim to continue in this positive direction of travel, sustaining and improving each time. Check out our latest report to learn more about our numbers, what we are doing for our teams today and for the great people joining Spirit Energy in future.
