Everyday Inclusion in action:
What is best practice?

As you may not be surprised to read, inclusion is always the focus of our heads and hearts at Inclusive Employers. National Inclusion Week is now only 4 weeks away and as our theme this year is ‘Each One, Reach One’ we are thinking about what inclusion looks and feels like on a daily basis: how we can reach out and include others. This week, we asked our Head of Inclusion and Diversity – North, Rosie Clarke, to share her experiences of inclusive best practice in action.

Engage with Inclusion 

The Inclusive Employers Standard gives you a tool to assess how inclusive your organisation is, from top to bottom and cross department.

We use the six pillars of inclusion: Engage; Equip; Empower; Embed; Evaluate and Evolve, to assess the breadth of employment activity across all strands of inclusion.

This case study highlights how the House of Lords, accredited Inclusive Employers Gold Standard, Engage their workforce on inclusion.
