Fair Work First Statement
MacTuff Limited is committed to advancing the Fair Work First criteria as set out within the Scottish Government guidance document. Specifically:
We would appropriate channels for effective voice from the workforce
At present Mactuff Limited no employees. However should this change and in order to ensure that their voices are heard and valued, each would have regular 1-2-1 meetings with their line manager or director as appropriate, not only in capacity of meeting the role requirements but also as opportunities for pastoral care and support. In the event that a line manager is providing support, each team member would have a designated director from the Board who is appointed to provide additional, less formal support (at least once every six weeks). This staff – Board member mentoring would provide a key role in ensuring the employee is happy at work and is receiving all the necessary supports to enable the completion of tasks, including additional pastoral care requirements. Board mentors would also support the member of staff through any appraisals/ disciplinary procedures etc, if required.
We would actively invest in workforce development
Regular appraisals would provide an opportunity for Mactuff staff members and line managers to discuss training needs. Staff would be encouraged to identify training needs and opportunities for continuing professional development (CPD) and discuss these with their line manager at any time.
We are committed to no inappropriate use of zero hours contracts
MacTuff Limited opposes the use of fire and rehire practices.
We take action to tackle the gender pay gap and create a more diverse and inclusive workplace
MacTuff Limited is committed to equal opportunities. The organisation is committed to creating a working environment free from unlawful discrimination on grounds of colour, race, religion, political beliefs, nationality, ethnic origin, disability, sex, sexual orientation, age, marital status or unrelated criminal background. We believe that it is in the best interests of all who are employed by or associated with the organisation to ensure that all human resources, talents and skills available are fully utilised.
MacTuff Limited will use the existing and future legislation, including (but not exclusively) The Equality Act 2010, as a framework on which to develop and promote good practice.
All employees, and those associated with MacTuff Limited, have a responsibility to observe this policy and to ensure that equality of opportunity is continuously provided for in the organisation's activities.
We are fully committed to paying the real Living Wage to both our employees and ensuring our contractors also do the same.
MacTuff Limited is fully committed to paying any employees above the Real Living Wage.
Due to the nature of our organisation, we currently utilise contractors for all of the work we do. When we engage with external providers, we ensure the same principle applies.
