Equality, diversity & inclusion
Equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) remains and important area of focus for us, and we have grown a network of more than 70 EDI champions across the UK. We have also committed to the UK government's Disability Confident scheme. The purpose of this scheme is to encourage organisations like Renishaw to think differently about disability and take steps to improve the recruitment, retention, and development of disabled people. As part of our commitment, we are ensuring recruitment processes are inclusive and accessible, as well as developing current procedures to support existing employees.
Supported by the Board, members of our Senior Leadership Team attended Inclusive Leadership training, hosted by the Employers Network for Equality & Inclusion (enei). This created an opportunity for more of the business to develop a broader understanding and education on EDI and related matters.
