We’ve achieved a Clear Assured Bronze accreditation

Clear Assured is a globally recognised inclusion standard, and we have been awarded ‘Bronze’ status for our commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion in the workplace. 

Clear Assured sets the direction for equality, diversity and inclusion, showing the areas that require focus in order to make the biggest impact and continually improve. There are 5 stages leading to a full Clear Assured accreditation and we began our work in 2018 when we signed on as part of the Lloyd's Inclusion Toolkit, and achieved a Foundation level accreditation. 

We’ve identified the need to address equality, diversity and inclusion not only from a legislative point of view, and at a baseline, but across all our policies and practices, and in the day-to-day experience of our colleagues.  

Our progress with the accreditation also supports our ability to consult with our clients on their inclusive hiring and talent strategies.  

  

How did we achieve Bronze?  

Over the course of the last 12 months, we have worked closely with Clear Assured to review a number of our practices and policies and have submitted evidence that we have:  

  • Reviewed our job advert writing practices to ensure we attract a wide range of talent  

  • Reviewed our job board partners to ensure we are advertising on channels that are accessible to everyone  

  • Committed to raising awareness and providing training or all employees on good ED&I practices  

  • Updated our internal policies so that they showcase and encourage equality, diversity and inclusion well above legal standard  

  • Reviewed our complete hiring process from job descriptions through to onboarding, to ensure a diverse and inclusive approach
