We recognise that our people are critical to our success
Diversity and Inclusion
We are a business that promotes diversity and inclusion (‘D&I’) across the organisation and are an Equal Opportunities Employer. We oppose all forms of unlawful and unfair discrimination or victimisation.
We remain committed to improving workforce D&I, and during 2020 there was a renewed examination of our approach. A Company-wide D&I strategy, aligned to our updated D&I policy, was developed to build awareness by providing education and understanding throughout the workforce. We also continued to support International Women in Engineering Day and the UK’s AXIS Network.
We are committed to improving diversity further and an employee-led global community has been established to explore and promote a greater sense of connectedness and celebration of difference at EnQuest. The ‘EnQlusion’ committee has already hosted events such as a talk from the Association for Black and Minority Ethnic Engineers and continues to work on ways to develop a more diverse and inclusive workplace.
EnQuest publishes its Gender Pay information in accordance with the UK’s Gender Pay legislation. Our gender pay gap results are influenced by factors such as societal norms, more males than females working in the Oil and Gas sector (particularly offshore) and individual choices in terms of self-selected flexible working practices such as part time working. Having a gender pay gap does not mean that the pay practices at EnQuest are unequal.
The Company conducts regular benchmarking exercises to ensure that our salaries are comparable, regardless of gender, and that our recruitment process is fair and balanced.
However, we recognise that we need to work at addressing our gender pay gap over the coming years. Whilst we recognise that any improvements of this imbalance cannot be resolved immediately, we are committed to narrowing the gender pay gap in EnQuest over time.
We have a zero tolerance approach to any form of modern slavery, which encompasses slavery, servitude, human trafficking and forced labour.
