Diversity and Inclusion

“We need diversity of thought in the world to face the new challenges” – Tim Berners-Lee

At NP Group, we place diversity and inclusion at the heart of everything we do. It is driven by our CEO and leadership team down through to all our employees and partners across our internal and external networks. It is vital to us as a company that our culture remains inclusive to everyone we work with – our people, our partners and our candidates.

We believe that in order to ensure a diverse recruitment process, we need to foster diverse teams. Our internal statistics speak for themselves – our people represent an incredibly rich variety of backgrounds and cultures, all of which are valued for the diversity of thought, ideas and experiences they bring to the table. We recognise that a diverse workforce leads to increased productivity and creativity, which benefits everyone.

For us, successful diversity and inclusion is about having a culture of acceptance, respect, and, most importantly, teamwork in the workplace.
