Diversity is an important element of our agenda at Grafton Merchanting as we value the input and participation of all our colleagues and want everyone to feel included and valued in the workplace, so they can bring their full selves to work every day.
We have a number of initiatives in place to drive our Diversity agenda, including our Equality, Inclusion & Diversity Committee who meet on a quarterly basis to ensure we are taking measured action on our Diversity agenda in line with legislative guidelines.
In 2018 we partnered with the government funded body EmployAbility who support the placement of people with disabilities and health issues into the workforce. To date GMROI have successfully hired two brilliant colleagues through the scheme with plans to create further positions suitable for employees with disabilities in the future.
Grafton Merchanting have supported Employ Ability a huge amount over the last year. It is fantastic to work with such an open and inclusive employer. Your support has been invaluable to not only our organization but also the individuals you have offered career opportunities. The positivity has echoed through to their families and wider community so thank you so much. We look forward to continuing to work with you for many more years.
