We treat everyone with respect

Amey is committed to achieving an inclusive working environment that values equality, diversity and inclusion. Everyone has an equal opportunity to fulfil their potential and “be their best”.

This means that we promote a mix of people, treat everyone fairly and respect differences in a culture where everyone can participate equally no matter their background, identity or circumstances. The result is that people feel valued, comfortable and confident to be themselves in a way that suits them and delivers business needs.

 In practice, respecting and accepting people for who they are by making adjustment or alternative interventions to remove barriers for people regardless of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage & civil partnership, race, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation and pregnancy or maternity.

Everyone who works for and with Amey is expected to adhere to these ways of working:

  • I will maintain a supportive, inclusive work environment that is free from discrimination, harassment, victimisation and bullying,
    and encourage and support those who report such behaviour
  • I will hire the best candidates for jobs, ensuring they are appropriately qualified
  • I will respect that diversity brings value to our work environment
  • I will promote talent based on merit
  • I will not accept any kind of discrimination
  • I will not make inappropriate jokes, try to humiliate a colleague or spread gossip and rumours
  • I will not threaten a colleague with physical or verbal violence
  • I will not communicate, use language or engage with colleagues or any stakeholders in a manner that is offensive to them, derogatory or unlawful or which might damage Amey’s reputation

At the heart of our approach to health and safety is the belief that all harm is avoidable and that there is no such thing as an inevitable injury.

Amey expects its employees to attend for work in a fit and appropriate state with no impairment from the misuse of alcohol, drugs or similar substances.

We also respect the importance of people feeling able to bring their whole self to work; for them to be aware of their own  wellbeing and to raise a concern if that may affect their ability to work safely.

Our Safety Code:

  • I am ready to go, fit and well
  • I am kitted out, with the right tools, equipment and competence
  • I will stick to the plan and re-asses if things change
  • I will stay alert, aware of risks and hazards
  • I will ‘Shout Out!’ if I have concerns about my own or anyone else’s safety

Everyone who works for and with Amey is expected to adhere to these ways of working:

  • Health & Safety
  • Alcohol & Drugs
  • Wellbeing

We do not exploit anyone. We uphold the rights of all those who work for or with us and of the communities in which we operate.

This means refusing to do business with any person, company or organisation that fails to uphold the standards and principles of basic human rights or has links with an oppressive regime that give us cause for concern.

We do not tolerate forced, debt-bonded, indentured labour practices or human trafficking. In the UK, we expect every party who we have dealings with to adhere to the principles of the Modern Slavery Act 2015, as we do ourselves.

Everyone who works for and with Amey is expected to adhere to these ways of working:

  • I will protect human rights
  • I will support the principles of the Modern Slavery Act 2015, to prevent slavery and human trafficking
  • I will encourage employees and suppliers to identify any person they think may be at risk from these practices so we may help them

For further detail, please refer to the following Amey policies:

  • Slavery & Human Trafficking Statement
  • Working Hours

Our stakeholders include, but are not limited to, our employees, agency workers, customers, partners, suppliers, contractors and subcontractors, shareholders, governments, regulators and the communities where we work.

Delivering services across almost every area of the UK means we have a huge impact on local communities.

Everyone who works for and with Amey is expected to adhere to these ways of working:

  • I will develop constructive relationships with all stakeholders, treating them with respect and professionalism
  • I will work with stakeholders to resolve disputes at the earliest stage
  • I will have a clear understanding of what our customers require from us
  • I will work with communities to understand how we can help them to improve their wellbeing
  • I will listen to the concerns of local communities and, wherever we can, act to mitigate them
  • I will not communicate with or engage with Amey stakeholders in a manner that is derogatory or unlawful or which might damage Amey’s reputation
  • I will not knowingly disrespect the people or communities we serve
