Seetec achieves Bronze status for Inclusive Employers Standard

Announcements News 24 April 2023
Inclusive Employer Standard - Bronze badge

We are proud to announce that the Seetec Group has been awarded bronze status by Inclusive Employers, recognising our commitment to embedding diversity and inclusion across our organisation.

The bronze standard, currently held by only 61 organisations within the UK, is an evidence-based workplace accreditation, where members must demonstrate their commitment to inclusion and diversity through meeting the requirements of the specified framework laid out by Inclusive Employers.

Seetec’s journey to achieving the standard began 18 months ago with the formation of new initiatives within the business to promote and foster equality and inclusion. This activity primarily focused on the reformation of our equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) strategy and the formation of established inclusion groups designed to provide a safe space for colleagues to discuss challenges and bring forward new ideas to promote equality and inclusion within the business.

Sasha Ashton, Group HR Director, said:

“Following the launch of our ‘Inclusive by Nature’: Equality, Diversity and Inclusion strategy back in June 2021, I’m really pleased that we have now achieved external recognition by being awarded the Inclusive Employers Bronze Accreditation. This demonstrates our commitment, and progress, in creating an inclusive culture here at Seetec.”

The accreditation demonstrates our commitment to our mission as an employee-owned business group, where we look to help people to realise their unique potential and in doing so advance fairer, safer and more prosperous communities. This of course starts with fostering diversity and inclusion within our own business and creating a first-class working environment for our colleagues across the UK and Ireland.

Moving forward, our ambition is to continue working with Inclusive Employers in hopes to achieve the gold standard accreditation. To do this, our colleagues plan to spend time assessing the report provided upon achieving our Bronze status and its feedback, then moving forward to implement changes where needed in order to achieve the higher standards of accreditation.
