Employees obviously come in all shapes and sizes, all religions, all races, all ages and all sexualities to name but a few categories.
Employees are protected by our laws from being discriminated at work on protected grounds (such as race, religion, gender, age, disability, etc) but no sensible employer wants to face a discrimination claim. National Inclusion Week seeks to raise awareness of inclusion in the workplace. Given that embracing such inclusion is aimed at improving work life, and not to mention the fact that equal opportunities type training can help provide a defence for employers if they find themselves defending a claim of discrimination in the Employment Tribunal, this week might be a good time for employers to focus on inclusion for all.
Organisations use National Inclusion Week to highlight their commitment to inclusion by organising events, communications, activities and resources.
