Our commitment to our people

We understand that our continued success depends on the collective strengths of our colleagues and we are dedicated to attracting, retaining and rewarding the performance of our diverse workforce to best meet the needs of our patients and the communities we serve.

 

We are proud that our workforce is currently comprised of 73% women and 33% of people of Black, Asian, and minority ethnic (BAME). Our equality, diversity and inclusion strategy, based on internal and external research, helps us support the advancement of women and people of BAME into leadership roles.

 

However, we are always looking to improve and we make it a priority to recruit diverse candidates at all levels of our workforce through a variety of venues and diversity programmes.

 

At Schoen Clinic UK, we are proud of our gender diversity, that we have strong female representation at every level of our organisation, right up to our senior executives.

  • We rely heavily on market and benchmarking data in setting compensation structures and practices, which are positioned relative to the external labour market to facilitate the attraction and retention of diverse talent.

  • We regularly monitor and assess our compensation programmes for any potential disparities based on race, gender, or ethnicity. 

  • We are committed to addressing any disparities that may not be explained by objective factors.
