The Director will ultimately be responsible for implementing this policy and ensure that staff at all levels are totally committed, fully involved and knowledgeable about their responsibilities in this area. The Director will also deal with any queries relating to it.

The purpose of the Artemis Interior Services Ltd.’s Equal Opportunities Policy is to ensure equal opportunities to all of Artemis Interior Services Ltd.’s employees are applied. We oppose all forms of unlawful and unfair discrimination.
All employees, whether part-time, full time or temporary, will be treated fairly and equally. Selection for employment, promotion, training or any other benefit will be on the basis of aptitude, ability and occasionally, in the case of training, affordability. All employees will be helped and encouraged to develop their full potential and the talents and resources of the workforce will be fully utilised to maximise the efficiency of the organisation.
Every employee is entitled to a working environment which promotes dignity and respect to all. No form of intimidation, bullying or harassment will be tolerated.
The commitment to equal opportunities in the workplace and to ensuring equal access to all staff and service users is good practice and makes sound business sense. Physical access for all users is reviewed on a regular basis to ensure that the premises are accessible and welcoming to all. Reviews consider public transport access, car parking, including special provision for people with disabilities, security (e.g. lighting), internal design features, and with particular reference to people with disabilities, times of service delivery, promotional material, and language or cultural barriers faced by anyone from an ethnic minority in Artemis Interior Services Ltd.’s area of operation.
Spent convictions – No account will be taken of “spent convictions” when consideration is being given to selection, training, development or promotion, subject to certain exceptions such as persistent offenders or serious offences which cause the individual to be unacceptable to his/her fellow workers.
Employees have personal responsibility for ensuring that they do not breach this policy in any way.Breaches of our equal opportunity policy will be regarded as misconduct and could lead to disciplinary proceedings. The commitment of all employees is necessary in making this policy successful.
All clients will be treated fairly and equally, according to their needs.
