Equality, Diversity and Inclusion
What does Equality, Diversity & Inclusion mean for Renishaw?
- We will create a workplace built on equality; where everyone has equal opportunity to get involved, to be inspired and transform tomorrow together.
- We will build a workplace that is diverse in thought, that inspires and represents our customers, partners and communities.
- We will ensure that employees feel included through feeling welcomed, valued and respected for who they are as individuals.
Renishaw recognises that increasing diversity in our company will enable us to be a responsible and productive business that is powered by talented people with diverse backgrounds and perspectives. This is central to our company strategy to provide a great place for our people to work, grow and contribute.
To enable us to focus on diversity within our strategy, we formed the UK Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Group in 2020. In 2023 we also brought in dedicated resource to focus on our ED & I efforts and accelerate our progress.
Led by employee representatives, the EDI Group supports equality, diversity and inclusion initiatives throughout the business, including celebrating awareness days and providing information to colleagues in the form of videos, online communications, guest speakers and colleague-to-colleague drop-in sessions. The Group has raised awareness on topics such as race and ethnicity, sexuality, gender, cultural awareness, wellbeing, mental health, and people with disabilities.
To develop EDI engagement in the business, we have a wide network of supporters, in the form of EDI Champions. These Champions support EDI activities and promote these in their local business areas across the UK. They also provide information and support to colleagues and gather feedback that will help to inform future EDI activities.
