Anchor Hanover’s Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Manager, Teagan Robinson said:
To achieve Silver status after being awarded Bronze last year really demonstrates Anchor Hanover’s ongoing commitment to EDI. I am so proud to work for an organisation that not only cares about its colleagues and people they serve but shows a willingness to improve its EDI practices and embed a culture of inclusion. Anchor Hanover are dedicated to making sure we are a truly diverse and inclusive organisation, and this award recognises that commitment. I am delighted with our new Silver status.
Rupert Moyne, MD - Corporate Services at Inclusive Employers said;
Participants in this round of the Inclusive Employers Standard achieved the best set of results ever. Amazing. Their success is a huge credit to the many people working incredibly hard to make inclusion an everyday reality in their organisation. It is wonderful to see the inclusion momentum growing across these ambitious organisations. Huge well done to them all and good luck to all those taking part in the next round.
The high scores achieved in this round of the Inclusive Employers Standard is largely down to the demonstrable progress achieved by repeat participants. Year-on-year progression reinforces the value of participation in supporting organisations every step of the way on their inclusion journey. The value of the Standard is not just in the accreditation but in the feedback provided and the opportunity to learn.
