Equal Employment Opportunity

As an employment and recruitment service provider, Value Added Personnel (VAP) understands the importance of maintaining workplaces and recruitment practices that are free from unlawful discrimination and harassment, including sexual harassment and bullying in the workplace.

Our clients, employees and contractors expect us to be leaders in recruitment and workforce management and we understand that our influence extends to candidates looking for work, employees working directly for us, individuals working on assignment as on-hired workers and to clients seeking our advice and support.  We, therefore, promote recruitment based on merit and fairness.

VAP provides a guide to the way we wish to operate as a Company and the standard expected of all individuals, both on our Client’s site and in dealings with others. It is also important that our decision-making processes, policies and procedures are aligned with our values.  These values emphasize that people are our most important resource and highlight the need for all of us to behave with integrity in all aspects of our work and business life.

All candidates applying for vacant positions are considered equally, and selection is based on the candidate’s knowledge, skills and ability to effectively perform the job.

We endorse the Workplace Gender Equality Act 2012 by taking positive steps to eliminate employment discrimination against women.

We recognize that a workplace free from unlawful discrimination and harassment will inspire confidence, creativity and general well-being which will ultimately result in improved productivity and better delivery of service to customers and clients.  Our ability to maintain healthy workplaces is also critical to our capacity to attract higher quality candidates and present them to our Clients.

Unlawful discrimination and harassment, including sexual harassment, is not tolerated by us and we encourage the reporting of any alleged breaches of our EEO policy and related procedures to management and/or our nominated Equal Opportunity Officer.
