Diversity and inclusion

DIVERSish | A message for the world's 500 most powerful business leaders

At Circle Health Group, inclusion is central to our business success. We believe that colleagues who are confident to be themselves at work are those that can bring their best and bring out the best in each other. We offer a wealth of options for continual personal growth in an organisation that embraces diversity of talent, creativity, skills and thinking amongst our hospitals and corporate sites.

From creating the right work-life balance, making time to invest in what’s important in an open and agile working environment, to supporting life changes and ensuring we help “grow our own” to encourage our people to build a career to match their ambitions.

We have an inclusive and open culture with a scale that creates a vast range of roles and opportunities.

Circle Health Group is Part of The Valuable 500

Circle Health Group has committed to supporting the global movement, putting disability on the business leadership agenda.

The Valuable 500 is a global movement that calls for influential businesses to champion disability inclusion in the workplace, believing that inclusive businesses create inclusive societies.

Circle Health Group has signed up to become one of the 500 companies helping to promote and celebrate the value of the 1.3 billion people living with disabilities worldwide.

Circle Health Group’s pledge

At Circle Health Group, we invest in a positive leadership culture. This encourages freedom to think and act.

From the boardroom to the hospital, we will continue to challenge ourselves to be more inclusive. We want to ensure that we discuss disability issues at every level. With this culture and support at all levels, we will:

With this culture and support at all levels we will:

  • Develop new ways to attract and train people who are living with disabilities.
  • Make reasonable adjustments to ensure that our existing talent who may be living with a disability are provided with the same breadth of opportunities as employees and candidates without disability. This ‘fair for all’ approach will form the basis of how we treat and develop our workforce, and
  • Seek to provide creative ways of removing barriers to employment whether they be physical or non-physical impediments. Again, we will create a ‘freedom to overcome’ approach throughout our decision making.

Finally, we will for the first time in our history, find opportunities to sponsor projects and awards focused on disability.

We are committed to building an organisation in which opportunity comes with ability. There is neither prejudice nor favour, and every individual’s needs are met to make their working life enriched and fulfilling.

Our policies support equality. Our employees are encouraged to respect each other and appreciate that discrimination plays no part in anything that we do.

Karen Prins, Chief Operating Officer and David Cooper, Chief People Officer
