We are delighted to have been awarded with the FairPlay Employer ‘Achieving’ award from Chwarae Teg (2020-2021). This accolade is in recognition of our ongoing commitment to diversity and gender equality. Indeed, we are proud to be a uniquely diverse company working within the chemical industry, with a 60/40 gender split – well above the industry standard.
Chwarae Teg has a mission to inspire, lead and deliver gender equality in Wales. The FairPlay award is given to companies who have both committed to and are working towards achieving gender parity.
CatSci is constantly working towards achieving a diverse workforce, ensuring that policies supporting equality are established from the start of all recruitment processes. This has also included rewriting existing policies to become more inclusive. We have demonstrated a commitment to adopting these policies, with our managers always staying up to date with key practices through workshops and webinars.
This recognition, along with the work and care put towards achieving a diverse workforce, continues to set CatSci apart from its competitors. We are grateful to have received this award, highlighting our commitment to equality and diversity, all the while ensuring customers are provided with perfect-for-purpose chemistry services.
Dr Mark Waring, General Manager at CatSci, said: “I am tremendously proud that CatSci’s commitment to equality and diversity has been recognised in this award. We are a cutting-edge technology company, delivering fantastic science from our expanding team of talented scientists.”
Leanne Jones MCIPD, HR Manager at CatSci, said: ”We are delighted to have received this award. Our people are at the heart of our business, and at CatSci we recognise the importance of having a culture which supports and promotes equality and diversity in all areas.”
