What are we doing to help us build a thriving, inclusive community?

Our ambition is to build a more diverse, equal and inclusive workplace for everyone and we have a mission statement in place to reinforce our commitment. However, that’s the easy part!

Our key challenges are…

  • How we continue to nurture positive behaviours in our own culture to foster healthy, happy and collaborative colleagues where performance is recognised and differences celebrated.
  • How we strive to build our own internal community to better reflect the diverse communities we serve.

To help us achieve this, we have recently established an employee network called #WeAreMarkerstudy – a body of proactive colleagues with diverse interests and experiences, who have volunteered themselves to be part of a driving force for positive change.

Change won’t happen overnight or without the support of our colleagues, but we are now in a good position to make realistic and manageable plans in order to see them flourish in the future.
