Diversity, equality and inclusion (DE&I)
We have an incredibly diverse workforce, so our current focus is to ensure this diversity extends to every level and every department across Kinovo. For example, 69% of our workforce is currently male. We are enhancing the metrics we gather to highlight any areas where we can be more diverse and inclusive. Part of this process is the upcoming establishment of our Diversity and Inclusion Internal Council, which (can also be considered a focus group), which will be the interface between our ESGM committee and our workforce. This liaison means various groups can be heard in good time, with the Board acting on any recommendations.
Kinovo recognises that the salaries our staff receive provide security and stability. We commit to various minimum wage schemes, such as the Living Wage, and we look to pay above these levels wherever possible. We are also seeking to pay above these levels and to train and develop our staff so they can add more value to clients, elevate their pay and feel more fulfilled professionally.
Plus we are enhancing our metric gathering and tracking processes, so we do not focus only on standard metrics (i.e., the gender pay gap), but we can also ensure there are no other pay biases based on demographics, such as ethnicity
