Shaw Trust is delighted to announce that it has been awarded Clear Assured accreditation in recognition of its commitment to inclusive recruitment practices. To achieve the Clear Assured status an audit was undertaken to identify and remove any barriers to inclusive recruitment. The Clear Assured badge will now sit on the Shaw Trust website and is a sign to all future employees that Shaw Trust is committed to employing people from a diverse talent pool.
Clare Gray, Disability Advocacy Advisor, who led the initiative, described the Clear Assured accreditation process: ‘an audit was carried out by a team of highly experienced Clear Company consultants and organisational behavioural experts. It was driven by the Trust's specific challenges and goals and carried out against a best-practice model, tested across a variety of both geographic boundaries and legislative frameworks.’
Shaw Trust joins the following organisations who have also achieved the accreditation including: Lloyds of London, Skanska, Highways England, Royal Bank of Scotland, NHS Trusts and E.ON.
The new Clear Assured status adds to Shaw Trust’s existing disability credentials including the Disability Confident Leader accreditation which replaced the Two Tick scheme last year.
