Our responsibilities in action

At Firstport we are constantly striving to work in sustainable and responsible ways. Here’s a few of our policies, and actions, which are keeping us straight.

Living Wage Accreditation

Firstport are proud to be accredited as a real living wage employer. This accreditation celebrates Firstport’s commitment to go further than the minimal wage, and pay staff a fair and liveable wage.

Scottish Business Pledge

Firstport are proud Scottish Business Pledge partners. By making this pledge Firstport demonstrate that we pay the real living wage, do not use zero-hour contracts, and are actively combatting the gender pay gap. We have also made commitments to the following elements of the pledge:

  • Environmental impact
  • Investing in a skilled and diverse workforce
  • Workforce Engagement
  • Innovation
  • Community Support
  • Prompt Payment

The pledge is reviewed on an annual basis, where we assess our progress and ensure we are meeting all standards necesssary to demonstrate our commitment to a more sustainable and ethical way of business.

Inclusion and Diversity Working Group

Early in 2020, Firstport started to fully address the question of diversity and inclusion through our Inclusion and Diversity working group. We understand that although we have made progress over the years there are many areas where we could do better. This working group was set up to formalise our commitments to inclusion and diversity, and put necessary practices into play in our working environment. You can stay up to date with the group’s progress right here on our website.
