Myerscough College has been named as one of the most inclusive employers in the UK by the National Centre for Diversity.
Myerscough – who already hold the prestigious ‘Leaders in Diversity’ status, and Disability Confident accreditation – is 8th on the list of the NCFD’s Top 100 Inclusive Workplaces Index for 2022.
The inspiring organisations that achieve a place in the Top 100 Index, demonstrate excellent levels of the FREDIE principal: Fairness, Respect, Equality, Diversity, Inclusion and Engagement; and clearly demonstrate strong employer values. The annual index covers the UK’s private, public and third sectors and is reviewed annually.
Myerscough is proud to be an open, inclusive and welcoming College, where equality and diversity are promoted and celebrated and where discrimination and harassment is challenged. We encourage positive behaviour and challenge all forms of negative behaviour and ideas.
Myerscough College believes in providing opportunities for all to succeed. This means making sure that everyone is treated fairly and with respect, and with high expectations of conduct and behaviours of staff, students and stakeholders. There is a College-wide culture which actively promotes equality, diversity and inclusion, which ensures an inclusive approach to the staff experience, and provides a positive working environment.
Solat Chaudhry, Chief Executive at the National Centre for Diversity said: “I send my warmest congratulations to Myerscough College on successfully reaching number eight 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 EDI running through their DNA. Let’s rejoice at this and build a better society.”"
