When 360 diversity was born, we aimed to make a tool that was more than just ticking boxes, we wanted companies to be able to demonstrate their commitment to their staff and create a way of working that went the extra mile.

360 diversity, the equality and diversity communications platform, has helped the Core Assets Group to win the Bromsgrove No Barriers Award. This award scheme was recently introduced by Bromsgrove District Council to give recognition to those businesses which provide good access and customer service to disabled people. The final list of award winners for the Bromsgrove No Barriers Disabled Access Awards was decided on June 20th by a panel of disabled volunteers.
It has been through 360 diversity’s support to the Core Assets Group for the last 18months which has resulted in the presentation of a number of awards for promoting equality and diversity (http://www.360diversity.com/). In this case, it has been the nature of the innovative 360 diversity (http://www.360diversity.com/) platform which has enabled staff who are parents of children with disabilities to seek support and communicate with others. Staff have the facility to participate on a unique dedicated online virtual forum. Users have been able to seek support from each other, which helps them to manage the difficulties of being a working parent to a disabled child.
Stuart Bray of 360 diversity adds “We are so proud to be able to support Core Assets with their excellent equality and diversity work. When 360 diversity was born, we aimed to make a tool that was more than just ticking boxes, we wanted companies to be able to demonstrate their commitment to their staff and create a way of working that went the extra mile. Core Assets Group has certainly taken this to heart, and winning this award is a credit to their commitment and dedication.”
“360 diversity was the obvious platform to support this initiative, there is a meeting once every six weeks, and in between times staff can access 360 diversity whilst in the office or at home, posting in topics such as travelling with a disabled child, flexible working, and independent living.”
360 diversity has helped bring people together from all backgrounds, cultures, ages, etc. and has brought about social learning for all, through the use of news articles covering the 9 protected characteristics detailed in the Equality Act 2010 through six dedicated strands homepages.
360 diversity is an online diversity forum and information resource which is available to private, public and third sector employers throughout the UK. It was developed to support organisations to take a holistic approach to diversity and to effectively implement and manage policies relating to equality and diversity in the workplace.
