Equality, diversity and inclusion
At Great Places, we recognise the importance of equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) and are committed to embedding these core principles in everything we do.
- Equality — fair and equal access to opportunities.
- Diversity — recognising everyone is an individual and different.
- Inclusion — a sense of belonging and a feeling of being respected.
As well as ensuring we meet legal and regulatory requirements, these principles underpin all of our business activities, making sure we continue to be an employer and landlord of choice.
For us, equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) are about recognising and valuing difference across our customer and employee bases. It is also about fairness in its broadest sense; stretching beyond areas already covered by legislation.
Our passion for equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) is reflected in how we operate:
As an employer — We make sure staff treat all customers with respect, responding positively to individual needs. We also recruit staff fairly and provide development opportunities.
As a service provider — We will always treat you fairly and provide the same level of services and employment opportunities to everyone in our diverse communities. Equality and diversity shapes how we work as a landlord too and we use information about residents to review and improve our personalised and flexible service.
As a community anchor — We build partnerships with organisations that can support residents’ health, wellbeing, aspirations or sense of community.
