Cultural and Diversity Policy

Diversity

Nightingale Home Health Care recognizes its diverse workforce as a key competitive advantage. The success of our business is a reflection of the excellence and skillfulness of our people. Managing diversity benefits individuals, our company, our clients and our stakeholders and we recognize that each employee brings their own unique capabilities, experiences and characteristics to their work. We value such diversity at all levels of the company in all that we do.


NHHC believes in treating all people with respect and dignity. We strive to create and foster a supportive and understanding environment in which all individuals realize their maximum potential within the company regardless of their differences. We are committed to employing the best people to do the best job possible.


NHHC is diverse along many dimensions. Our diversity encompasses differences in ethnicity, gender, language, age, religion, socio-economic status, physical and mental ability, thinking styles, experience, and education. We believe that the wide array of perspectives that results from such diversity promotes innovation and business success. Managing diversity makes us more creative, flexible, productive and competitive.


NHHC recruits people from different nationalities. We believe that our employees from many different cultural, linguistic and national backgrounds provide us with valuable knowledge for understanding complex international markets.


NHHC rewards excellence and all employees are promoted on the basis of their performance. All managers are trained in managing diversity to ensure that employees are treated fairly and evaluated objectively.


NHHC recognizes that there are distinct demographic groups that have long been disadvantaged. We recognize that racism, ageism, sexism and other forms of discrimination are problems both for our organization and society as a whole. We have clear reporting procedures for any type of discrimination or harassment combined with follow-up procedures to prevent future incidents.
