Our differences are what make us stronger
We want Wiggin to be an inclusive, safe and inspiring workplace, committed to providing equal opportunities and participation for all our current and future people, proactively tackling and eliminating discrimination. This benefits our people, wider society, the business we run and the clients we serve.
There’s no such thing as a typical Wiggin person. We don’t hire people who dress or think a certain way or come from a certain background; all we ask is – are you interesting, do you have ideas, do you want to shape what excellence is?
This has resulted in the eclectic collection of enthusiastic people that is Wiggin today. Everybody has a passion outside their work. We’ve got musicians, athletes, graphic artists, podcasters – even a successful novelist among us.
Diversity, inclusion and participation are critical because the sectors we work in are full of people who are diverse in thought, perspective and experience. We need to match that in order to give them the very best advice and service.
We’re proud to be a Stonewall Diversity Champion, and we’re putting in place measures to ensure equality and increase diversity, inclusion and participation in Wiggin. And we know it’s not just about who we hire, but how we work, because we recognise that people perform at their best in different ways.
Work takes up most of our waking lives, so it’s important to embrace our differences. If we had to try to be anything other than our own authentic selves, we wouldn’t enjoy it as much and could never be at our best.
