We have a long history of successful accreditations across our different partner organisations, including:
Investors in Diversity
One of Richmond Fellowship's key aims is to respond effectively to our diverse communities and to attract and develop a diverse workforce. To reflect this commitment, Richmond Fellowship has worked with National Centre for Diversity to secure Investors in Diversity (IiD) accreditation.
The National Centre for Diversity aims to advance fairness for all in the workplace by helping organisations to embed best equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) practices. They work with organisations to positively influence beliefs, attitudes, behaviours and conduct towards issues surrounding EDI and to transform the workplace environment to one which is equitable and inclusive.
Their Investors in Diversity accreditation, which Richmond Fellowship has proudly held since 2016, provides an all-encompassing methodology for improving equality, diversity and inclusion practices in the workplace and has enabled us to take a structured and planned approach to ensure that EDI is at the heart of what we do. It has also provided us with an excellent framework to bring together all of our organisation’s work around EDI.
Investors in People
Richmond Fellowship and Aquarius have both achieved their Silver accreditation against the Investors In People Standard, which demonstrates our commitment to high performance through good people management.
Investors in People is the international standard for people management, defining what it takes to lead, support and manage people effectively to achieve sustainable results. Underpinning the Standard is the Investors in People framework, reflecting the latest workplace trends, essential skills and effective structures required to outperform in any industry and enables us to benchmark against the best in the business on an international scale.
Richmond Fellowship is accredited as a Disability Confident employer. To achieve this status, we have demonstrated our commitment to:
- Ensure our recruitment processes are inclusive and accessible
- Communicating and promoting vacancies
- Offering an interview to disabled people
- Anticipating and providing reasonable adjustments as required
