Coroporate Social Responsibility - Employees
Severfield–Rowen aims to attract, retain and motivate the highest calibre of employees and encourages their development and initiative.
Employees are regularly informed of matters concerning the performance and future developments of the Group.
The Board takes account of employees’ interests when making decisions and suggestions from employees aimed at improving the Group’s performance are welcomed.
The Group’s policy is to provide equal opportunities to all existing and prospective employees.
The Group’s reputation is dependent on the quality, effectiveness and skill base of its employees and is committed to the fair and equitable treatment of all its employees and specifically to prohibit discrimination on the grounds of race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, age, nationality or ethnic origin.
The Group has also continued with its established policy of employing disabled persons where practicable and endeavours to ensure that they benefit from training and career opportunities in common with all employees.
In the event that employees become disabled every effort is made to ensure that their employment with the Group continues and that appropriate training is arranged.
The Board considers training of employees to be very important and consequently has established a training department to operate this particular function.
This department is manned by experienced training officers whose prime purpose is to provide adequate training to new employees and to update all employees with the continuing changes in legislation regarding training and health and safety.
