Constantine Cannon is committed to creating an environment in which equality of opportunity is a reality for all members of staff where all individuals are able to make best use of their skills, free from discrimination or harassment, and where all decisions are based on merit. We have recently carried out an equality and diversity survey of our employees and from the anonymous data that has been provided by them (employees are free to decline to complete the survey or to choose “prefer not to say”) we have been able to conclude that they fall into the various protected characteristic types as defined by the Equality Act 2010 (sex, age, race, religion, sexual orientation, disability, etc.).
Due to the risk of employees being identified through their anonymous data we are unable to publish more specific details without breaching the Data Protection Act 2018.
