Equality & Diversity Policy

We believe that fostering a culture of co-operation and mutual respect on sites and in our offices underpins the high quality of products and services offered to our clients.

We value diversity and consider applicants from all sectors of the community. The diverse nature of our existing workforce is a direct reflection of this. We believe that our success is conditional upon valuing and encouraging the potential of all employees and we actively encourage this in our employment and subsequent training procedures.

Adveco Ltd. / Adveco (AWP) Ltd. (Adveco / A.O. Smith Water Heaters) aims to ensure that employees and their work environment are free from all forms of harassment and intimidation that create an intimidating, offensive and hostile environment. Any employee participating in such conduct will be subject to disciplinary action where required including termination of employment.

It is strictly forbidden for employees to indulge in acts or make comments of a physical, verbal, sexual or racial nature.

It is the policy of Adveco to encourage equality and diversity amongst all parties associated with our operations by proactively targeting the following objectives:

Cultural Change – Tackling some of the attitudes which are common barriers to equality and the provision of a fair and comfortable working environment.

Service Delivery – Distributing information in a manner that ensures its flow and comprehension through all necessary channels to limit ignorance and/or lack of knowledge influencing the working environment of those employees and our supply chain.

Employment – Building a workforce that represents the different communities and people within our operational environment. Opportunities will be afforded to suitably qualified individuals regardless of race, colour, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability or marital
