Embedding diversity and inclusion at Post Office

From interpersonal relationships to business performance, better diversity and inclusion brings better outcomes.

Diversity at the Post Office is not only about meeting the legal requirement regarding protected characteristics; it is about providing an environment that encourages difference of thought, experience and background. From interpersonal relationships to business performance, better diversity and inclusion brings better outcomes.

The Talent and Diversity & Inclusion team have developed a set of equality objectives which showcase our goals and are reflected in the activities over the next 4 years.

Our equality objectives are:

  • Building a diverse and inclusive workforce that reflects and understands the public we serve
  • Ensuring all colleagues are valued and can contribute to our success​
  • Empowering and enabling all colleagues to thrive and prosper​
  • Advance the equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not​

Additionally, as part of our commitment to Diversity & Inclusion, the following 5 commitments were made by our CEO, Nick Read, during Black History Month (October 2020).​

Post Office will: ​

  1. Gather and monitor data about ethnic diversity at the Post Office and use this data to measure the success of diversity initiatives​
  2. Set diversity targets, objectives and KPIs for the senior leadership team ​
  3. Raise awareness of BAME issues in the business through training, discussions and by celebrating our diverse workforce​
  4. Continue to improve recruitment processes by actively identifying and eliminating unconscious bias ​
  5. Change our processes to encourage diversity through ensuring fairness in reward and recognition and being open about our career pathways​
