Life Matters – A series of DEI policies and programmes supporting our people

In this DEI programme, the judges found a strategic, holistic programme with clearly articulated targets, a high level of buy in from business stakeholders, and positive and measurable feedback from employees. It was an investment for change, putting time and resources into establishing the business case. Its execution drew on data and research and connected to the CIPD principles. They demonstrated the engagement by line managers and how it has been integrated into the culture.

A differentiator for this entry was how it engaged with business development teams so they could draw on it, and showcase the organisation's commitment to DEI. An example of 'internal thinking going out’, it has become part of the business story.
