Olivia Breen – EDI Ambassador
At the STR Group, we are proud to promote an ethos of equality, diversity and inclusion across our businesses. Internally and externally, we are committed to helping both our employees and clients achieve their EDI objectives. How do we do this? Internally, we implement the FREDIE principles in all we do: Fairness, Respect, Equality, Diversity, Inclusion and Engagement. When recruiting on behalf of clients, we work hard to gain an understanding of their objectives and concerns regarding EDI within the recruitment process and help them to alleviate these.
Paralympian Olivia Breen supports our EDI objectives and works with us to drive initiatives forward. Olivia plays a key role in educating our employees on the importance of equality, diversity, inclusion and equity in the workplace, as well as during the recruitment process for both our clients and candidates.
“ I am delighted to be an ambassador for the STR Group’s EDI initiatives and I thoroughly enjoy working with them on our shared ethos of Creating Opportunity Together, it is something that is really important to me. As you can imagine, I love being part of a team as being an athlete means that I work alone most of the time, combine that with being a part of a team that is working towards the greater good and who is passionate about creating a culture of openness, equality, diversity, inclusion and equity in the workplace…it’s a perfect fit.”
Olivia Breen, EDI Ambassador for the STR Group
What is EDI?
Ensuring everybody has an equal opportunity and that no one is treated differently or discriminated against because of their characteristics.
The unique attributes that individuals bring to the workplace are those most visible or commonly discussed; such as gender, race, age, and ethnicity, as well as those less visible or discussed such as class/status, work-life issues, sexual orientation or disability.
The capacity to include difference. The action or state of including or being included within a group or structure.
Can you evidence your EDI initiatives?
Of course we can, get in touch with us today and we can take you through the different ways that we commit to ensuring that all employees, temporary workers and candidates are treated fairly and with dignity and respect. We can also take you through the reviews of our practices to make sure that we continue to fully support equality and diversity in everything that we do internally.
