Equity, Diversity & Inclusion

Our Commitment

TT Electronics is a people business, the expertise of our people drives our success. If you want to work with a diverse, talented group of people in an inclusive, exciting environment then you have come to the right place.

We are a design-led technology company with a global footprint, consisting of a diverse team of world-leading experts obsessed with solving our client’s toughest technology challenges for a cleaner, smarter, and healthier world. Our competitive advantage is our unique inclusive, caring, and supportive culture centred around our company values. We therefore recognise the importance to support, encourage & embrace diversity & inclusion within the workplace.

At the heart of our People Strategy is our commitment to create a working environment where you can be your authentic self and be your best.

Tolerence, Respect and Dignity

We maintain a workplace that ensures tolerance, respect, and dignity for all staff. 

No employee, applicant, contractor, or temporary worker should be treated less favourably, victimised, or harassed on the grounds of disability, sex, marital or civil partnership status, race, nationality, colour, ethnicity, religion or similar philosophical belief, sexual orientation, age, or any distinction.

We value your uniqueness and understand balance is better. 

We aim to increase the diversity in our teams and encourage action to increase representation of different groups. Diverse perspectives help us to make better decisions, innovate and tailor to our customers. Your uniqueness stems from your beliefs, characteristics, and personality and we want your individuality to shine so you can be your authentic self at work and to help us reach our business goals.

Be the Best Version of Yourself

We want you to feel empowered to be the best version of yourself. You will find this reflected in our values and behaviours, in our policies and practices, in our purpose statement and in our people strategy. We proactively promote inclusion as it’s critical to our success. Creating an environment where everyone feels respected and empowered is one of the ways that we are actively shaping and improving the world we live in.

Alongside our policy, we have a Transition Guide for managers and employees to support those transitioning, and an Allyship guide to explain what it means to be an Ally.
