Our commitment to our community

Swift recognises its corporate responsibility to five main groups in its community. We are committed:

(a) To employees – To respect the rights of all employees, whether directly employed or sub-contracted, in accordance with the principles set out by the CIPD (Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development). To provide and maintain safe conditions of work, with competitive terms and conditions of employment. Not to use any form of under-age or forced labour under any circumstances.

Equal Opportunities

Swift Business Solutions Ltd is committed to eliminating discrimination and encouraging diversity amongst our workforce. Our aim is that our workforce will be truly representative of all sections of society and each employee feels respected and able to give of their best.

To that end the purpose of this policy is to provide equality and fairness for all in our employment and not to discriminate on grounds of gender, marital status, race, ethnic origin, colour, nationality, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, religion or age. We oppose all forms of unlawful and unfair discrimination.

All employees, whether part-time, full-time or temporary, will be treated fairly and with respect. Selection for employment, promotion, training or any other benefit will be on the basis of aptitude and ability. All employees will be helped and encouraged to develop their full potential and the talents and resources of the workforce will be fully utilised to maximise the efficiency of the organisation.

Our commitment:

  • To create an environment in which individual differences and the contributions of all our staff are recognised and valued.
  • Every employee is entitled to a working environment that promotes dignity and respect to all. No form of intimidation, bullying or harassment will be tolerated.
  • Training, development and progression opportunities are available to all staff.
  • Equality in the workplace is good management practice and makes sound business sense.
  • We will review all our employment practices and procedures to ensure fairness.

We encourage the involvement of employees in the planning and direction of all aspects of their work.

(b) To customers

To win and retain customers who adhere to business principles consistent with our own by developing and providing services that offer value in terms of price, quality, safety and environmental impact. To be responsive to customer comments and complaints.

(c) To suppliers and business partners

To seek mutually beneficial relationships with suppliers and joint venture partners. To require that, so as far as is practicable, all of these adhere to business principles consistent with our own.

(d) To the wider community

To conduct business as responsible corporate citizens, to give proper regard to the health, safety and the environment of local communities, and to be sensitive to and supportive of local cultural, social, educational and economic needs.
