Board diversity policy
The Board considers the issue of diversity for every appointment. As part of this, the Board has adopted a policy on diversity as set out below:
Vitec recognises the importance of a fully diverse workforce in the successful delivery of its strategy. The effective use of all the skills and talents of our employees is encouraged and extends to potential new employees. It is essential that the best person for the job is selected regardless of race, gender, religion, age, sexual orientation, physical ability or nationality.
Vitec is fully committed to equal opportunity where talent is recognised. The Board will keep under regular review the issue of diversity including at Board level, senior management level and throughout the enitre workforce, taking into account, among other things, Lord Davies' review Women on Boards, the Hampton Alexander review FTSE Women Leaders and the Parker an McGregor-Smith reviews on Ethnic Diversity.
We will report upon this annually in our Annual Report.
