This year, we initiated a survey to understand the socio-economic backgrounds of our team, adhering to the Social Mobility Commission’s guidelines.

This survey classifies backgrounds into professional, intermediate, and lower socio-economic categories. The insights gathered are part of our commitment to fostering a diverse and inclusive work environment.

Additionally, we’re exploring community outreach and upskilling programs to support those interested in tech careers.

While we focus on monitoring and communication, we’ve decided not to set specific targets but rather emphasize professional development for all team members.
