What is equality and diversity in the workplace?
Equality is about ensuring everybody has equal opportunity in the workplace so that everyone is treated fairly. Creating an equal environment prevents people from being discriminated against because of their characteristics. While diversity is about taking account of the differences between people within a group and placing a positive value on those differences. A workforce should be built up of people that all look different, think differently, and have different beliefs.
What are the nine protected characteristics?
The Equality Act 2010 is the main legislation which protects people from discrimination related to any of the protected characteristics. Its main focus is that people are protected from discrimination on the grounds of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion and belief, sex and sexual orientation.
How does discrimination affect a business?
There is no doubt that discrimination affects businesses negatively. Discriminating against employees on any grounds other than their skills and talent is detrimental for business. It could open up the business to time-consuming and costly legal troubles, often leading to loss of business and reputation. Discrimination also damages workplace culture and employee morale.
