Our Approach to Gender Balance & Diversity

We are a diverse people business, proud to be working for a wide variety of clients. We are committed to building an inclusive culture that respects and maximises the contribution of all our employees.

Our intent is to:

  • Ensure fair and equal treatment of employees;
  • Embed a culture of diversity and inclusion throughout the Middle East;
  • Provide employees with the best opportunities to fulfill their potential;
  • Respect and protect human rights of employees and contractors.

Our first steps on the journey to becoming industry leaders in Gender Balance and diversity were to develop our 'Middle East Gender Balance' report. The report highlighted where we are as a business and where we will be going to in the coming months. Click the button below to download our report.
