Post Office has put in place an Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Council (EDI) with the aim to increase the diversity of our workforce at every level.
Based on best practice, Post Office has put in place an Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Council (EDI) with the aim to increase the diversity of our workforce at every level ensuring Post Office more closely reflects our customers, our Postmasters and the communities that we serve. To achieve this, we must develop a culture that has inclusion and equity at the heart of everything we do, ensuring that we have a workforce that is diverse in the widest possible sense and in which diversity of background and thought is valued.
Having a diverse workforce brings a diversity of experiences and perspectives, which will help us better meet the needs of our employees, customers and Postmasters. This is not just about our role as an employer, being a genuinely inclusive and diverse organisation is the foundation of commissioning and delivering services that meet the needs of our diverse communities.
The Diversity Council at Post Office will deliver:
- Agree goals and objectives for the D&I Strategy
- Guidance for diversity activity proprieties
- Diversity best practice
- Tracking and measuring success of diversity activities
The council will also report on progress to our Board with Zarin Patel, Carla Stent and Saf Ismail acting as the Board points of contact.
