August 10th, 2020, Ground Control has shown their commitment to racial equality by signing up to the Race at Work Charter
Business in the Community (BITC) in partnership with the government is pleased to announce that Ground Control has signed up to the Race at Work Charter, an initiative designed to improve outcomes for black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) employees in the UK.
The charter builds on the work of the 2017 McGregor-Smith Review, ‘Race in the workplace’, a wake-up call for UK employers, which found that people from BAME backgrounds were still underemployed, underpromoted and under-represented at senior levels. So far more than 200 public, private and charitable organisations have signed up to the charter.
Tanya Meah, HR Director, Ground Control said, “We are delighted to introduce ‘Inclusive by Nature’, Ground Control’s Diversity and Inclusion Strategy. This strategy marks a step-change in putting Diversity and Inclusion at the heart of who we are as an organisation.
We recognise that we are not yet representative of the communities we support, and we’ll need to be bold in our strategy, innovative in our actions, and act with integrity to honour our diversity and equality commitments. We have set ambitious goals to guide our efforts, measure progress and hold ourselves to account. Our priorities are to put people at the centre of everything we do, embrace innovation and technology, and be sustainable leaders in our chosen fields. Creating a diverse and inclusive Ground Control is imperative to achieving these objectives and we’ll strive to lead from the front, not only as a responsible employer but as influencers in our sector, as we know that getting it right is critical to securing an engaged, innovative and successful workforce.”
Sandra Kerr CBE, race equality director at Business in the Community, said: “We would like to thank Ground Control for setting out their commitment to being an inclusive and responsible employer. By signing up to the charter they are showing that they aspire to have one of the most inclusive workplaces in the country. Together we can break down barriers in the workplace, raise the aspirations and achievements of talented individuals, and deliver an enormous boost to the long-term economic position of the UK.”
