Valuing difference and promoting a culture of respect for each individual is one of our core values. We aim to be an employer of choice worldwide by encouraging diversity in our workforce in all aspects and at all levels. In 2014 we launched Working Start, a global initiative to provide paid employment opportunities to people with disabilities.
Working Start is designed to put our beliefs into practice by promoting confidence in disability. We believe that when people are able to be themselves at work, they will realize their full potential and career ambitions. This means not only being proactive in ensuring that job opportunities are accessible to all, but also taking action to improve recruitment policies.
Successful applicants participate in a year-long program working with Norton Rose Fulbright. Our aim is to ensure that they gain valuable, commercial, on-the-job experience and collaborate on a project dedicated to making us more disability confident. The program, supported by McLaren Honda through our global partnership, underscores our shared focus on innovation and high-performance team work. Participants are mentored by McLaren Honda during the course of the program, with a focus on the partnership values of teamwork, innovation and excellence.
