We believe in equal opportunity and the value of being inclusive

Murphy passionately believes in equal opportunity and the value of being inclusive.

We continue to be proactive in playing our part to attract and retain the best people, who are rewarded and recognised in the right way, and have access to roles and development opportunities that enable them to reach their full potential.

To accelerate the delivery of a more inclusive work environment and enhanced overall workplace diversity, Murphy is focused on the following priorities:

  1. Improving several processes such as recruitment, employee engagement action planning and development programmes
  2. Developing a new Learning Module that focuses on our Integrity and Respect value, addressing challenges such as unconscious bias and raising awareness of protected characteristics
  3. Improving our maternity leave policy including a maternity returners bonus
LGBT+ inclusion

At Murphy we have an open culture where there is a safe inclusive environment, we want you to bring your whole self to work. Our inclusion focus is to provide equal opportunities to everyone everywhere and to ensure all our people feel valued and safe, allowing them to achieve their best.

All employees have a duty to act in accordance with our equality and diversity policy and to treat colleagues with dignity at all times.
