We aim to promote equality and diversity both as an employer and as a service provider. We are committed to creating an environment where employees and customers are treated with dignity and respect and where differences are respected, accommodated and valued.
Equality for Dublin Bus is primarily about fulfilling our legal obligations as an employer and service provider. We aim to achieve full equality in practice on the grounds of gender, marital status, family status, sexual orientation, age, disability, religion, race and membership of the Traveller community.
Equality is also about creating an environment of mutual respect for individuals and groups and enabling them to participate fully as employees and users of our service.
Diversity embraces the range of individual skills, educational qualifications, work experience, cultural background, languages and other relevant attributes and experiences that we bring to the workplace. It is about linking the positive aspects of these differences with the business needs of the organisation.
Managing diversity can be defined as the creation of an environment in which everyone can achieve his or her full potential and where a broad range of individual abilities, talents and perspectives are valued and supported. This helps to provide a quality service or our customers, improve staff morale, reduce absenteeism and facilitate real teamwork.
