Action highlights


We created our Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging International Advisory Group to bring together different people, backgrounds and experiences from across international, to help Active become a more diverse and inclusive place to work now and in future.

This year we have taken part in education and celebration of Chinese New Year, Black History Month, Pride Month, Ramadan and Day of the Dead to name just a few, including cookalongs, dance classes and workshops.

We have also created our Recruitment Manifesto with our commitment to clear, fair and kind recruitment practices and enhanced our policies to support inclusivity.

"It's so rewarding to work for a company where you know everyone is pulling in the same direction. As a group, we encourage, inspire and support one another to not only excel in our core roles but to add value in other parts of the business which, collectively, makes a huge difference to our commercial success and individual growth." – Mark Henson, Head of New Business
