VGC Labour Solutions has been awarded yet another national standard of accreditation. “Equality Accredited Employment” gives the company accredited status on the National Equality Register.
This is a national standard that encourages businesses and organisations to embrace equality practices in all that they do. Equality practices result in competitive advantage and benefits both employees and the wider community.
VGC was awarded the accreditation following an extensive audit of the company’s processes and interviews with staff at head office and on site.
Commenting on the latest accreditation, Group Services director Ciara Pryce said, “VGC has always been committed to equal opportunities in every aspect of our activities from recruitment through to our service provision. In recent years we have further developed this into an Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Strategy. This aims to remove barriers in relation to accessing employment and development activities, to support people from under-represented groups to access opportunities and to promote equality of opportunity to all who work with and for VGC.”
Ciara continued, “EDI is an area that is embedded in the way that VGC delivers its services. We are continuously looking at ways to improve the way we do things and ‘outperform’ against our expectations.”
