Sodexo and Cafcass were applauded for their equality and inclusion policies at the 2015 Employers Network for Equality & Inclusion (enei) Awards which took place at The Law Society, London on 14 July. 

Awarded the top honours of ‘Overall Winner 2015 – Private Sector and Public Sector’ respectively, the two organisations celebrated their achievements alongside North East Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group which was named ‘Small Employer of the Year 2015’. Both Sodexo and Cafcass won two awards this year and stood alongside other organisations that have taken a lead in challenging discrimination in the workplace and are working inclusively to tap into their talented workforce. North East Lincolnshire CCG were rewarded for their integration of equality and diversity in their business practices, being Highly Commended for two other awards. This year Santander and South East Coast Ambulance Service repeated last year’s success in winning the ‘Gold Standard’ for equality – enei’s online benchmark.

Accolades were granted in 22 categories, with winners having to demonstrate a clear response to a specific challenge, definitive and measurable outcomes and evidence of significant impact.  The awards acknowledged and celebrated those with a commitment to good practice above and beyond legal compliance and innovative approaches that will inspire other employers.  A further 16 organisations were Highly Commended for the work they are doing.

Among the speakers addressing over 260 delegates at the event was president of The Law Society, Jonathan Smithers, who reminded delegates that although promoting diversity can be seen as less important than some items in one’s in-tray, a diverse and inclusive workforce that represents the society that it serves is critical to organisational success.
