Vivian kicked off it’s 70th Anniversary celebrations in the best possible way by being awarded the Equality Mark.
The Equality Mark is a certification awarded to companies that make gender equality one of their values and whose management is based on the recognition and promotion of the potential of all employees, irrespective of their gender and caring responsibilities.
The certification is based on the concept of gender equality where the rights, responsibilities and opportunities offered to men and women are not determined by sex, a concept that Vivian firmly believes in. This implies equal access to opportunities by focusing on individuals’ capabilities.
Vivian has shown commitment towards best practices in the area of gender equality, marital status, pregnancy as well as maternity and paternity benefits.
Vivian embraces and respects diversity, be it concerning gender, sexual orientation, nationality or religion , creating a harmonious culture not only within the organisation but also externally with all the esteemed stakeholders they connect with.
Vivian`s Managing Director, Joanna Gatt commented that ‘Achieving the Equality Mark has actually rubber stamped our values and modus operandi at Vivian throughout the years. We are truly very happy to have achieved this, so every Vivian colleague knows that we are respected for who we are as individuals because we embrace diversity to create harmony. I would also like to thank our HR team for making this possible.’
Building on the Equality certification, the company`s Corporate Social Responsibility team will be organising various events throughout 2022 to commemorate 70 years of service to patients.
