Drive has always supported and encouraged career development for staff of all genders, through regular supervision and appraisals, opportunities for learning and development, a 4-week onboarding programme and the achievement of recognised qualifications. Where possible, Drive seeks to promote from within and, as a result, has a long-standing workforce of engaged and motivated employees.
Reward benchmarking is undertaken to ensure that pay and benefits are continually assessed within a fair and transparent process, based on the deliverables and accountabilities of each role, not the gender of the role holder.
Whilst this report is a positive one, Drive is not complacent and will continue striving towards its equality, diversity and inclusion goals to ensure future reports remain as positive.
