Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

Our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) team's mission is to champion and raise awareness of equality and diversity in the workplace, encouraging open dialogue and a safe space for colleagues to share their ideas, opinions and experiences. We strive to educate ourselves and all staff through continuous training and development to ensure that equality, diversity and inclusion are actively promoted at Salix.

Diversity is an integral part of our world, and it is imperative that this is recognised and acknowledged within an organisation. Every person we encounter or come to work with will have a unique background, beliefs, and life experiences that have shaped the person they are today. It is, therefore, essential that these elements must be respected and considered in every interaction. Cultural awareness enriches our connections with others as it invites empathy, understanding and awareness of traditions and values that are important to other people.

Salix prides itself in having a diverse workforce, and it is through diversity that the organisation has grown, resulting in a thriving workplace that provides a fair working culture.
