Diversity Works for London

Accreditation

Gold Standard Award

About the accreditation

As part of a new scheme announced by the Mayor of London, DWFT (Diversity Works for London) Purdy Contracts were one of a hundred London businesses selected for evaluation and possible certificate for an Award. After a vigorous evaluation progress and on our first attempt, our company was awarded, in September 2012, the “Gold Standard Award” - the highest award achievable.

Diversity Works for London is a Mayoral programme that encourages and supports businesses to realise the competitive advantage of London’s diversity. By providing a comprehensive suite of tailored business support products the programme enables companies to improve performance through Diversity.

The Gold Standard is for those companies wishing to differentiate themselves as leaders in EDI best practice. It consists of a comprehensive set of good practice statements which address all aspects of business performance including the workforce, marketplace and suppliers. The Standard is stretching but achievable and flexible enough to recognise that organisations have different equality and diversity objectives that are appropriate for them and relevant to their industry and sector.
