We flourish on the diversity of our people
We strive to nurture and respect individuals to ensure everyone feels valued and supported to excel in their chosen field. This value is at the core of our organisation.
Our vision is to develop an exemplar company, promoting excellence in science and engineering, underpinned by employee diversity and an inclusive culture at all levels of the organisation.
Our mission is to ensure an environment in which people feel comfortable being themselves and are valued for the unique strengths and contribution that they bring to NPL.
We will continue to reinforce our culture of fairness by treating everyone on the basis of their own individual merits and abilities regardless of their own or perceived identity, background or any other factor irrelevant to a person’s work.
The Diversity & Inclusion Task Force at NPL brings together people from across the organisation to promote employee diversity and inclusivity. There are several interest groups including: LGBT+; Mental Health; Faith & Religion; Dyslexia & Neurodiversity; Gender Equality; Ethnicity; and Disability.
As part of NPL's commitment to Diversity & Inclusion, we signed up to the Institute of Physics' Project Juno in 2015 as a Juno Supporter. NPL was proud to be awarded Juno Practitioner status in 2018.
NPL also joined Stonewall as a Diversity champion in 2015, participating in their annual Workplace Equality Index for the equality of LGBT+ community at NPL, and have made considerable progress since taking part.
In 2018, NPL became a member of the Business Disability Forum and joined the disability confident scheme as a Level 1 committed employer.
NPL is a disability-friendly employer. For information about accessibility at our Teddington site.
