At the Croydon College Group, it is part of our HR Strategy to create an inclusive culture with equality and diversity at the core. That is why we are excited to share that we have committed to the Investors in Diversity Award from the National Centre for Diversity (NCFD).

We are always looking for ways to achieve our objectives and we are taking many steps to fulfill equality and diversity in the workplace. Our collaboration with NCFD will ensure we have expert guidance to involve our stakeholders and create meaningful action plans. To make this happen, we will be using their framework ‘FREDIE’:

Fairness for all is a reality

Respect for all is the norm

Equality of opportunity for all is embedded

Diverse employees feel that they belong

Inclusion is widely understood, where all colleagues are committed to inclusive behaviours and where leaders connect the link between an inclusive culture and business performance.

Engaged – where there is a positive emotional attachment between colleagues, their work, managers and leaders – where everyone lives and breathes the values and goals of the organisation.

Over 150 colleges have been through this process and have seen success in increasing staff engagement and creating a positive working culture. Keep an eye out over the coming months where we will be sharing information about how to get involved, including our staff, student and stakeholder surveys.
