Clear Assured is a globally recognised inclusion standard. In January 2022 we were awarded ‘Bronze’ status for our commitment to equality, diversity, and inclusion in the workplace.
What is Clear Assured?
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 an early adopter of the inclusion standard and achieved a Foundation level accreditation.
