Equality at Opto Living

Opto Living is proud to value quality and diversity and believe that all employees and residents have the right to be treated with respect and dignity. It is important to our business to develop relationships with people from a variety of backgrounds and cultures which means equality and diversity is of paramount importance supporting our vision.

Equality is about treating people fairly and without bias. It is about creating conditions in the workplace and wider society that encourages diversity and promotes dignity and ensures dealing with customers and suppliers are conducted in a constructive way, one that supports inclusion and not discrimination.

Diversity is about creating an inclusive environment. It takes account of the fact that people are different in many ways so understanding, valuing and effectively managing these differences which can result in greater participation at the individual and organisational level.

There are seven main areas to consider:

  • Age
  • Disability
  • Race/Ethnicity
  • Gender (which includes transgender)
  • Religion/Belief and Culture
  • Sexual orientation
  • Work-life balance

The policy below ensures that we carry this out:

  • Residents choose their room types on their individual preferences and will not be allocated, or withheld rooms based on sex, gender, race, disability, race or religion or sexuality.
  • Accessible facilities and services are provided for disabled students and will make reasonable adjustments to residents’ rooms if necessary
  • We treat all residents and staff in a non-judgemental manner
  • We do not tolerate discrimination, harassment, bullying or victimisation against employees, residents or third parties
  • We will fully investigate complaints from employees, residents or third parties and have a complaints process that is followed.
