As businesses continue to adapt to the Equality Act, our Founder Samantha Lee explains what Act means for you and your organisation.
The Single Equality Bill completed its journey through the course of the legislative process at the end of the last parliament, finally becoming the Equality Act 2010.
The bill signaled a sea change for British employers, as it established higher quality standards in the workplace and an imminent step forward for organisations.
Primarily affected will be the public sector but the private sector should embrace this legislation if it wants its business to move forward.
Running a business and managing teams of people is challenging at the best of times especially for small to medium sized businesses. Partner this, with new legislative procedures coming into place shortly.
Any business at the moment will be wondering about the cost of training, however there is funding out there, and if you have 2 managers or key personnel who you may think may need training there are options for your business.
It shouldn’t be seen as a negative and more of a positive; business considerations have to be drivers, such as the procurement process and also strategies for improvement to be proactive and not reactive within discrimination both internally and externally for an organisation.
