Respect and Inclusion
We're not perfect. But we believe in always trying to be better.
To us, respect and inclusion are about recognising that everyone is different and creating a business that values those differences.
We are committed to equality of opportunity for all and the promotion of a workplace culture where all our people can succeed.
To drive this commitment forward, we appointed Emma Smith as our dedicated Inclusion & Wellbeing Manager.
Emma works in partnership with all areas of the business to make sure we’re constantly improving our practices and embedding our core values of respect and inclusion in everything we do.
We are proud that ‘inclusivity’ was the top rated factor in our 2021 internal engagement survey, but its important to us that we don’t stop there and that we continue to make Burness Paull a welcoming and inclusive place for all.
To allow everyone’s voice to be heard, we formed a strategy group, BeIncluded, to find out what matters to our colleagues and how we can provide support on issues which might affect them at and/or outside of work.
Headed by Sarah Phillips, the group works closely with our employee networks and representatives from across the firm to ensure that respect and inclusion are constantly on our agenda.
"I believe the firm has a culture that celebrates individuality and openness, where genuine advice and relationships are championed, an environment in which everyone is able to do their best work."
