Orion are committed to increasing diversity, equity and inclusion for our staff and customers.

Orion is a home for people with determination, passion and drive, and opportunity exists regardless of gender, ethnicity, identity, or disability. Through broader representation, and enhancing our inclusive culture, our team can achieve our business goals together.
Ensuring that we are always recruiting, retaining, and promoting a diverse mix of staff who represent the diversity in our local communities provides the range of capability that we require to successfully grow our business.
How Orion presents itself to the world is integral to stakeholder’s perception of our inclusiveness. Inclusiveness is the heart of our business, and this is reflected in our branding, our service and conduct.
Access to work is an important strand to our inclusive business approach. For example, our web site now has text to speech, speech recognition, page translation, magnification and reading customisation to aid website visitors.
Orion offer a range of flexible working benefits to staff as we appreciate the fact that it can aid job satisfaction, employee wellbeing, work-life balance and enable our work to be accessible to a broader group of candidates. We actively promote client flexible working arrangements and offer candidate outreach methods that we can engage in our recruitment processes.
Developing and maintaining an inclusive business is an important goal for Orion. A worldwide culture of inclusion where all our staff feel that they belong requires that we maintain an open environment that reinforces inclusive practices. Our practices will be supported by our policies that continue to be enhanced with developing best practice. We are committed to sharing social media content that reflects our, and demonstrates the value of, an inclusive culture.
We aim to attract diverse candidates and staff through demonstrating our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Through resourcing, induction, and on-going training, we expect and encourage inclusive behaviours across our company.
Orion are a Recruitment & Employment Confederation qualified trainer, and we provide formal diversity, legal and ethical training to all our recruitment staff. Internal diversity training is provided to all new staff and wellness campaigns are run annually with health guidance available to all employees.
Orion recognises that there is a wide range of neurological differences in the human population, including conditions such as autism, ADHD, dyslexia, and others. We acknowledge that these differences simply reflect different ways of thinking and processing information and that it is important to recognise and accommodate neurological differences to create a more inclusive society.
The cognitive, behavioural, and emotional well-being of our staff is important to Orion. Through our team of mental health first aiders, we seek to provide a point of contact for any employee who is experiencing a mental health issue or emotional distress. When we spot signs of stress or poor mental health in an employee, we will act to assist them. Orion will continue to provide education on mental health to our staff.
Corporate Social Responsibility is incredibly important to Orion. Our business reflects our community, and we are focused on ensuring that our company conduct is ethical, fair, and beneficial to the communities where we work. Orion also assists staff with initiatives that support our local communities across the globe.
