Championing wellbeing, equality and diversity
The wellbeing of our workforce is crucial to how we operate as an organisation. It impacts how we support colleagues and interact with customers. There are several initiatives and networks in place such as:
We are an inclusive employer and committed to equity, diversity and inclusion.
We value diversity in our workforce and the benefits of bringing together different perspectives and talents. We want all our colleagues to be able to share their ‘whole self’ at work and to feel supported and included when they do.

The network provides support and information to unpaid carers. It also helps to review new policies at RoS to check if they accommodate working carers.
Our Neurodiversity Network is a place to engage and support one another. It also shares information, news, events and training.
Neurodiversity describes the idea that everyone experiences and interacts with the world around them differently and there is no one "right" way of thinking, learning, and behaving.
Valuing our neurodiversity is key to being more inclusive and supportive of colleagues with various developmental conditions, including:
- Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
- Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
- Tourette's syndrome
The RoS Pride Network was first established by colleagues in April 2019.
Since then, it has supported us in our work to make RoS a welcoming, safe, and inclusive environment for our LGBTQ+ colleagues. This includes providing peer-to-peer support and sharing resources from various LGBTQ+ groups and partners that our colleagues may find helpful.
We want to be an ally and so aim to increase awareness and understanding amongst all colleagues of the issues that affect our LGBTQ+ colleagues. This happens through internal articles and face-to-face activity.
The Community Benefits Group was set up in 2012 to support local communities across Scotland. By supporting different events and activities they make a positive impact to those within the locality.
The Social Events Group (SEG) is a membership based group run by a Committee from across RoS, whose role is to organise events and offers which are available to all members and their families.
The SEG aim to:
- promote social events for members and their families
- promote sporting participation
- promote social engagement across RoS
- work collaboratively with our HR wellbeing in supporting ongoing health and wellbeing initiatives
- work collaboratively with Civil Service Sports and Leisure (CSSC)
