Attracting and retaining a fully inclusive and diverse workforce remains a priority for Career Connect. The diverse makeup of our workforce brings unique talents, improved customer service and many benefits to our clients and customers.
Inclusivity is an important commitment at Career Connect, underpinning everything we do. As one of our key values and fully endorsed by our Board of Trustees, it is monitored, discussed and regularly reported. This year, we received conditional accreditation in the Investors in Diversity standard, as a further demonstration of our commitment to making Career Connect a great place to work for everyone.
We intend to be fully transparent about the diversity challenges we face as a charity and outline our commitment to making progress in this important area.
The Career Connect People Strategy 2021-25 highlights a number of actions we must take as a priority, to build and grow a diverse workforce, which will enable greater trust, inclusivity and understanding within our communities.
We will continue to develop an inclusive culture aligned with our vision and values, where wellbeing is a priority for every individual.
Since 2017, we are pleased to report that the actions taken to address some early concerns regarding gender pay gap, have been effective in helping us to make progress towards bridging the imbalance.
