Committed to creating & developing a diverse culture at Outsource

2019-10-10

 

We have been awarded a Bronze Gender Diversity Charter Mark, recognising our commitment to advancing gender diversity in the workplace.

Diversity Mark NI Ltd was set up by Women in Business to deliver the Charter Mark, awarding organisations for their commitment to progressing diversity. Those receiving the Charter Mark have committed to addressing areas of unequal gender representation at all levels, removing obstacles of career development; implementing structural and cultural changes that will help advance gender diversity; and putting in place a strategy and action plan to effect change.

Terry Moore, CEO commented “We are delighted to have received recognition of our ongoing efforts to ensure that we develop and create a diverse culture and make life better at Outsource. We are absolutely committed to equality as we work to deliver the ambitious vision that we’ve set out in our application. We will do all that we can to ensure that we develop an inclusive culture where everyone is valued regardless of gender, age, background or ethnicity.”

The Charter enables organisations to identify and reflect on institutional barriers which impact progression. It enables business and organisations to progress the overall diversity and equality agenda and improve the working environment for all employees. Building and fostering a diversity and inclusion strategy that is truly lived in an organization is a catalyst for success and a foundation for innovation. Diversity has a positive impact on every area of business including financial performance.

The Bronze Charter Mark was awarded by the Diversity Mark NI Independent Assessors panel which included Judith Gillespie, former Deputy Chief Constable of the Police Service of Northern Ireland, Kieran Harding, Business in the Community Director, Deborah Lange, Board Member at Invest NI and Belfast Harbour Commission and Dianne Foster, Baker Mc Kenzie.
