The Clear Assured Gold Standard is awarded to companies demonstrating inclusion and diversity best practice
Tarmac has achieved a gold accreditation for its commitment to inclusion and diversity in the workplace.
The Clear Assured Gold Standard, from assessment body the Clear Company, is an accreditation which is awarded to organisations that can evidence integration of inclusion and diversity measures across all areas. This includes policies, practices and strategies.
Following Tarmac’s achievement of the Silver Standard in 2022, the Gold accreditation was secured through continued efforts to embed and enhance inclusion and diversity practices across the business.
The Clear Assured framework is designed to examine all aspects of inclusion culture.
Among the Tarmac initiatives identified by Clear Company as worthy of the accreditation were the launch of a menopause policy, a full refresh of employee diversity data, and achieving Disability Confident Employer (level 2) accreditation.
Louise Houston, head of inclusion and diversity for Tarmac, said: “We’re delighted to celebrate achieving the Clear Assured Gold Standard after only one year. We acknowledge, however, that the hard work absolutely does not stop here.
“Inclusion practices are crucial for creating a diverse and supportive workplace culture. The Clear Assured approach of continuous improvement enables us to identify areas where we can improve our inclusion practices and ensure that all colleagues feel valued and supported.”
