Diversity. Inclusion. Equity.

We value diversity. 

When we say this, we mean that everyone at 118ͼ embraces each other’s unique experiences, knowledge, and perspectives. Without them, we wouldn’t be able to drive innovation and creativity throughout our brands and our business. We consciously recognise and appreciate the differences and similarities among our people.

Our Approach

We recognise that not everyone starts from the same place. So, we’re committed to removing barriers that prevent people from realising their full potential. Our goal is to build a positive culture that showcases individuality and supports everyone. We say build because we believe there’s always more that can be done.

For candidates, this means we’re committed to making reasonable accommodations and adjustments so that there’s equal access to opportunities and a fair application process. This support continues when people become part of the Group and valued members of our team.

Our Diversity and Inclusion strategy was developed by our dedicated Diversity & Inclusion working group, led by our Head of Inclusion & Sustainability. Our global approach is applied locally across our whole portfolio to ensure that we all celebrate and value diversity at every level in every team. With this common purpose, we’re always working to bring together more people and views. We’re committed to collaboration and taking action for a positive change agenda, and this means holding a mirror up to ourselves. We have dedicated communities and champions across Race & Ethnicity, Gender, Disability, Carers, LGBTQIA+, Religion & Belief, Menopause and Wellbeing, including mental health first aiders. We have also;

Bottom Description

Why It Matters.

Our clients are varied, and so are our people. We want our people to see themselves and what they’re passionate about in our portfolio, and we want the clients and sectors we support to recognise themselves in the teams who make 118ͼ.

Diversity and inclusion have to exist for all. We want to bring uniqueness to life at work and empower everyone on their 118ͼ journey. This matters because people’s strengths lie in their different experiences, skills and perspectives. Of course, we want our teams to share the Group’s values.

"When our people feel they belong, we learn from each other and innovate together".

Ruth Abdey, our Chief People Officer

Embracing D&I the way we do means we can improve creativity and innovation. We can leverage more and better ideas. Our teams can focus on creative solutions and improved problem-solving abilities and can make better decisions thanks to the unique qualities they bring.
