Ongo leads in diversity

Ongo has again achieved ‘Leaders in Diversity’ accreditation for the fourth year, following results of in depth assessment carried out in June.

The accreditation is awarded by the National Centre for Diversity who were founded in 2005 and work with organisations of all types, to help embed good practices around fairness, respect, equality, diversity, inclusion and engagement (FREDIE).

Ongo were congratulated on the culture they’ve embedded throughout the organisation and willingness to learn and continuously improve at all levels.

Karen Cowan, Head of Corporate and Governance at Ongo, and equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) lead said: “We are all delighted to have retained Leaders in Diversity. It means so much to us all that we are part of change and driving EDI forward.

“None of what we have achieved would be possible without the fantastic work of colleagues from all levels, our amazing customers who help to make real, lasting difference, and of course all members of our community.

“This accreditation is something we will display with pride as we continue to work towards our goals of a fair and equal society.”

In May this year Ongo were also announced as 33rd in The National Centre for Diversity ‘Top 100 Most Inclusive Workplaces’ list.

Leading their approach is an EDI steering group, made up of colleagues and customers who discuss important issues, break down barriers, create action plans and hold Ongo to account for making change happen.

Key improvement areas from this assessment featured training for colleagues and incorporating further measures into procurement processes. These will be included in an action plan, monitored by the EDI steering group.

Ongo also publish a roadmap of where they are in terms of EDI and where improvements can be made to promote engagement and transparency, along with a statement from their Board. To find out more about Ongo and their EDI commitments, follow them on social media or head to their website:
