Everyone's welcome pledge

We believe that our places of work are better when they create a positive working environment where everyone’s welcome. We want people to feel comfortable and free to bring their whole self to work.

“What Manchester does today, the rest of the world does tomorrow.” – Disraeli

We’re proud to work in Greater Manchester, one of the UK’s leading cities. What makes Manchester such a vibrant place to live and work is the diversity of its people.

Since the Industrial Revolution, the city has attracted people with different talents and backgrounds. And it’s thanks to this diversity that over the centuries, people from Manchester have led positive social change and pioneered industrial, scientific and technological innovation and free trade.

Bupa’s own roots in the Manchester area go back to the 1940s and in 2018 we’re very proud to open our new office Bupa Place, Salford Quays.

To mark the opening of Bupa Place, we’ve launched our ‘Everyone’s Welcome’ pledge and invite local organisations to join our commitment to promoting and celebrating diversity and inclusion.

We’ve made huge strides in recent years to nurture work places that are consciously inclusive, but we can never be complacent and there’s always more we can do. In today’s world many people are facing mental health challenges – so we’re passionate about making sure that we build workplaces where people can be open about the challenges they face and get the support they might need.

Thanks for your support and we’re looking forward to working with you – everyone’s welcome.

We believe that:

Inclusion should be part of the way we do business and that business is simply better for welcoming different backgrounds, ideas and cultures.

It’s important to understand and celebrate our differences, creating inclusive cultures which welcome everybody and where people are supported to reach their full potential.

Nobody should be treated unfairly because of their individual characteristics, race, sex, religion/beliefs, disability, marital or civil partnership status, age, sexual orientation, mental or health status.

We are committed to:

Raising awareness and helping create a better understanding of and respect for all the differences which make us unique.

Creating supportive, understanding work environments where there’s no stigma attached to mental health illness.

Creating a welcoming, inclusive culture in our organisations which is led from the very top

Taking action against any form of discrimination, harassment or bullying.
