The UK’s Top 50 Employers has listed Lancashire & South Cumbria NHS Foundation Trust (LSCFT) within the top 3 NHS Trusts for its work in demonstrating a diverse and inclusive workplace.
For the fourth year in a row, the Trust has been listed within “The Inclusive Top 50 UK Employers”. This year the Trust has shot up another place and has been ranked number 19 out of 50 organisations in the UK for its outstanding efforts and commitment to attracting and retaining a truly diverse workforce. Compiled by a dedicated panel of judges, the list has been collated based on organisations’ performance on a range of areas within the diversity arena including recruitment procedures, training and other diversity related initiatives.
Emma Allen, Equality and Diversity Lead at Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust, said:
“I am so pleased that the trust’s position has improved again this year and that we are now in the top 3 NHS trusts in the whole country. Our presence on the list is a really positive reflection of the hard work we’ve been doing to make our organisation as inclusive and accessible as possible for a wide range of people. There’s still a long way for us to go and we know that we don’t always get it right but being on the list allows us to benchmark ourselves against other inclusive companies so we can learn from them and bring new innovative approaches to equality, diversity and inclusion back to our own areas of work.”
Paul Sesay, Founder of Inclusive Companies said:
“With every news report and article of events happening across the world, it is now even more important than ever to stand together. It is your stories and commitment that enable this, so I encourage you to share how you enabled that change in yourself or others, and how every day you inspire hope.”
The list was revealed at the prestigious awards ceremony held on Thursday 28 November at Hilton Hotel in Deansgate, Manchester. For more information about the list visit: www.inclusivetop50.co.uk
