Trust named as 'one of top 50 inclusive companies in UK'

The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital (ROH) has been unveiled as one of the 'most inclusive companies in the UK.'
 
The Inclusive Companies Awards is the only awards ceremony that ‘rewards organisations for harnessing a truly diverse workforce, thus recognising the significant efforts of organisations nationwide that excel in their commitment to equality and inclusion across all strands of diversity.’

The awards cover excellence in all areas of diversity including age, disability, gender, sexual orientation, race and religion, as well as highlighting diverse employers and employees across a wide variety of sectors including housing, public, private, charity and education.

They also illustrate some of the nation’s most inclusive organisations, gathering each year to recognise those that lead in equality, diversity and fairness, in all aspects of business.

Inclusive Companies ROH

Inclusive Companies unveiled its top 50 in a virtual ceremony on Monday 2 December, where ROH placed at number 34. The award comes after significant work by the Trust to increase equality and promote inclusiveness amongst staff.
 
Head of Organisation Development and Inclusion at ROH, Clare Mair, said: "We are completely delighted to hear that we have been included in the Top 50 for Inclusive Companies. We were hoping to make the list, so to be ranked at 34 is beyond what we ever expected. This is such a fantastic achievement especially when we look at the other prestigious organisations involved.

"We are particularly proud of the work that colleagues in our staff networks and listening sessions have been involved with over the last 12 months with support from our Leadership team. We will continue to focus our inclusion agenda on giving our staff a strong voice to then move forward together.

"Our ambition is clear - as we continue on our inclusion journey we want to ensure our colleagues, patients and families feel safe and have a sense of belonging at the ROH. There are exciting times ahead for Equality and Diversity at the Trust, which is why we are proud to be recognised on what we have achieved so far."
