Diversity 93961

Coltech believe that increased diversity is vital to our continued success because the skills and talents needed to support all our client requirements both to the public and private sectors are improved by people from a diverse range of backgrounds. 

Our challenge is to attract and retain the best people from the widest possible pool and provide them with an environment in which they can reach their full potential.  Therefore, we need clients form an array of businesses, both within the private and public sectors.  

We know that our clients are working hard to promote an inclusive environment where people can flourish and where the diversity of their employees/agency workers helps them to better understand the needs of their customers and communities they serve.   

We want to assist them to help their businesses grow by increasing their diversity of skill and talent.  We also know that our clients are taking responsibility for challenging and eliminating behaviours like harassment, bullying and discrimination if they occur.   

As an industry leader we act on your behalf.   By working with your organisation, we hope to increase your chances of finding and keeping the best people and in doing so support you with good diversity practices. 

Additionally, we do believe in ensuring a good competency and cultural fit for all client relations and this can sometimes mean not recommending some candidates for clients and vice versa.  This knowledge is only gained once a real partnership is created between Coltech and our clients.
