RAINBOW TICK CERTIFIED – 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 AND NOW 2019
July 19, 2019 9:19 am
We’re proud to be re-accredited with the Rainbow Tick in 2019 – this represents FIVE consecutive years of demonstrating the value we place on Diversity & Inclusion and our Rainbow Community, not only to ourselves but to our customers, suppliers, and to the wider community. Being inclusive is a BIG part of our journey and our culture and we make it a priority to value, support, and respect our individual differences.
Back in 2015 we were the first FMCG company to receive the Rainbow Tick accreditation and since then have continued our journey of ensuring we are creating a safe and inclusive working environment for our LGBTTI (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual, takatāpui and intersex) employees.
The accreditation process is made up of five key areas that we’re evaluated on:
- Staff training
- Staff engagement & support
- External engagement
At the end of the evaluation process, we’re provided with a report which helps us know what we’re doing well and identifies any recommendations for change. Taking part in programmes such as the Rainbow Tick helps to keep us accountable and always striving for better.
