British Standard for diversity and inclusion launched
BSI, the business standards company, has launched a new standard for employers to provide guidance for good practice on valuing their employees through diversity and inclusion. The standard, BS 76005 Valuing people through diversity and inclusion – code of practice for organizations, provides recommendations for undertaking, reviewing, assessing a competent and principled approach to diversity and inclusion in the workplace. The recommendations cover people management and development, and the evolution of more inclusive policies, procedures, practices and behaviours within organizations supporting diversity. The building of productive relationships with customers, clients or people within communities is also a key recommendation.
