The news was announced at the prestigious FREDIE Awards 2022 held at Villa Park, with Career Connect ranking at number 46.
The FREDIE Awards recognise those organisations working to improve Fairness, Respect, Equality, Diversity, Inclusion and Engagement (FREDIE) practices in the workplace. As an accredited Investor in Diversity with the National Centre for Diversity, Career Connect places FREDIE standards at the heart of everything we do.
Barry Fletcher, Career Connect CEO said: “I am immensely proud to see Career Connect reach number 46 in the Top 100 Most Inclusive Workplaces Index 2022. The last two years have been challenging for all charities. Yet it has not stopped the excellent work that colleagues in Career Connect have been doing – promoting FREDIE best practise and making our organisation a more inclusive place to work.”
Solat Chaudhry, Chief Executive at the National Centre for Diversity said: “I send my warmest congratulations to Career Connect on successfully reaching number 46 in the Top 100 Most Inclusive Workplaces Index 2022. It’s been a challenging year and yet, it has not dented the excellent work that organisations and individuals do in promoting FREDIE best practice.
“I am particularly proud that we celebrate excellent work across all sectors as these organisations are the future of the workplace in the UK. We celebrate the exceptional work of people and organisations who have Equality Diversity and Inclusion running through their DNA. Let’s rejoice at this and build a better society.””
