Equality Act / Equal opportunities and fairness at work

The 2010 Equality Act is the most significant piece of equality legislation for many years. It makes it easier for employers to understand their responsibilities by simplifying and streamlining the law. It also sets a new standard for those who provide public services to treat everyone with dignity and respect.

Organisations face the challenge of implementing an Equality and Diversity programme to ensure that they are not only complying with legislation, but also valuing diversity within the workforce. Creating a culture in which diversity is valued and employees feel comfortable in expressing their differences, will undoubtedly improve productivity and performance.

This day training session covers the essentials of Equality and Diversity that all organisations and employers need to be aware of.
