“Our colleagues are at the heart of our service, so it is paramount that they feel supported, valued, and treated fairly within the workplace.”
As the scheme becomes more embedded across the Liverpool City Region, different levels will be available for employers to obtain, including an ambassador level.
As an ambassador, employers will be advocates for the LCR scheme. CSS hope to become ambassadors of the scheme in the future and support employers across the region to join the fair employment movement.
Ian Green said: “Fair employment underpins the stability of the workforce. When individuals are treated fairly and feel fulfilled in the workplace, productivity can increase significantly.
“Productivity is a measure of output relative to inputs and for many businesses, their most important and costly input is the staff. If businesses can get more out of their staff, not through exploitation, but by making work fair and fulfilling, they will see an increase in productivity.”
The Charter is open for all Liverpool City Region employers to join. There are four categories against which employers will be assessed against including, Healthy, Fair, Inclusive, and Just. Within each domain, employers will be ranked as either aspiring or accredited.
