POLICIES

SeaBot Group | Diversity Policy 

SeaBot Ltd is committed to promoting equality and diversity and promoting a culture that actively values difference and recognises that people from different backgrounds and experiences can bring valuable insights and contributions to the workplace and enhance the way we work. SeaBot Ltd aims to be an inclusive organisation, committed to providing equal opportunities throughout employment, including in the recruitment, training and development of employees, and to pro-actively tackle occurrences of discrimination. 

At SeaBot Ltd, we consider that equality means breaking down barriers, eliminating discrimination, ensuring equal opportunities, and access for all groups to employment, goods and services.  

We embrace diversity and celebrate the differences in society, recognising that people are unique in elements that are both visible and non-visible. We seek to ensure that personnel are respected in their own right and can feel valued for their contributions towards the development of both SeaBot Ltd, and themselves. 

We acknowledge that equality and diversity are not inter-changeable but inter-dependent. There can be no equality of opportunity if difference is not valued and harnessed.
