Commitment to Equal Opportunities & Diversity

We are committed to diversity and actively promote equal opportunities. Our recruitment methods aim to attract as diverse an employee and candidate base as possible. We also strive to assist our clients in meeting their own diversity targets.

Potensis is a signatory to Diversity Works for London, a Mayoral programme based on improving performance through diversity. This has helped us to develop our policies and achieve better practices across a wider range of protected groups and business functions.

Potensis aims to operate in a responsible manner, recognising the environmental impact of business activities. We are signatories to the Green Procurement Code that has guided us in implementing green purchasing procedures within our organisation. We actively support the Mayor's campaign to cut London’s carbon emissions 60% by 2025.

Social and Community
