Our success relies on the diversity and talent of our people. We strive to nurture and respect individuals so everyone feels valued and supported to excel in their chosen field. This value is at the core of our organisation.
As part of our commitment to diversity and inclusion, we signed up to the Institute of Physics’ Project Juno in 2015 as a Juno Supporter. NPL were proud to be awarded Juno Practitioner status in 2018. NPL also joined Stonewall as a Diversity champion in 2015. In 2018, NPL became a member of the Business Disability Forum and joined the Disability Confident scheme as level 1 committed employer.
Diversity and Inclusion's role in delivering our vision, KPTs and values
NPL is diverse and inclusive, we want to constantly improve and challenge ourselves to be better. We have a range of initiatives that demonstrate our commitment to diversity and inclusion (D & I), such as our Diversity and Inclusion Task Force who are individuals who bring together people from across NPL to promote inclusive working practices and ensure that diverse views are represented in the formulation of key strategic objectives.
We are in the process of developing the Diversity and Inclusion Strategy to support and help us achieve our vision to be best in class in Diversity and Inclusion (D & I).
Diversity and inclusion infrastructure
NPL has always been a proud employer of a diverse and inclusive workforce, offering support to all with a range of Diversity and Inclusion initiatives.
Overall Executive sponsorship is key to ensure strong and visible leadership across the business and to embed Diversity and Inclusion across NPL. Leaders will present strong unified messages around diversity and inclusion with support and guidance from the Diversity and inclusion Manager and the D&I task force. More importantly creating a culture free of discrimination relies on the efforts of each and every employee at NPL.
