Diversity and inclusion

A diverse workforce adds value to our business. It helps us understand consumers from all walks of life and create compelling marketing for our clients. An inclusive workplace culture helps us attract the most talented people from all backgrounds.

We introduced a non-discrimination policy in 1992. This commits all WPP companies to select, develop and promote people based on merit and regardless of race, religion, national origin, colour, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age or disability. Our Code of Conduct contains policies on harassment and non-discrimination. Where existing employees become disabled, our policy is to provide continuing employment and training wherever practicable.

Employees can report any concerns or suspected violations of our policies confidentially and anonymously through our Right to Speak helpline.

The CEOs of our companies are ultimately responsible for diversity and inclusion. We review our companies’ diversity programs as part of our annual talent review process.
