Leading the Charge in Diversity and Inclusion

Rivervale's dedication to inclusion goes beyond words. A recent Diversity and Inclusion Audit highlighted achievements like achieving near-equal gender balance, offering accessible and gender-nuetral facilities, providing flexible working options and inclusive events. These are just the starting blocks, however. The company is actively engaged in ongoing initiatives to further build a more inclusive workplace.

A Welcoming Environment For All

Some reports suggest, that car showrooms and service centers haven't always been welcoming for women and members of the LGBTQIA+ community. Rivervale are actively changing that narrative. Their commitment to diversity and inclusion extends beyond the workforce; it's reflected in the welcoming atmosphere that's been cultivated for every customer who walks through the doors.
