Best.Energy Becomes an Includability Committed Employer

Includability is delighted to welcome Best.Energy as an Includability Committed Employer for 2022.

Best.Energy have successfully completed an initial 5-Star Verification Process in which they have committed to take the journey toward authentic inclusion by integrating fairness into their company culture and into each stage of their recruitment process by making commitments in the fields of sustainability, mental health, wellbeing, talent management, and diversity and inclusion.

The process was independently conducted by Includability Official Partners; Prosperah, Outliers Wellbeing, Flex Wellbeing, Unleashed, and Mental Health Charter CIC to ensure practices align with established definitions of an ‘Inclusive Workplace’.

Best.Energy is a UK based company specialising in the measurement, control and reduction of energy consumption and costs within the industrial, commercial and public sectors. They believe that energy efficiency is not just a green issue, it is about the effective use of resources required to run a successful organisation.

To help clients understand their energy wastage problems, Best.Energy offer technologies that measure energy waste and efficiencies as the first step in process is to make energy use visible and easy to understand.

They say information alone is not going to solve the problem of climate change, it is only by motivating people to change their energy usage behaviours and applying energy efficient technologies where appropriate that they can help reduce the consumption of some of the world’s biggest consumers: lighting, motors, refrigeration and air conditioning.

Best.Energy have sustainability baked into the core of their business and are looking to implement new initiatives around mental health and wellbeing by introducing mental health first aid training for their employees and using anonymous filtering processes to remove unconscious bias from their hiring process.  

On working with Includability, Elle Chappell, People & Culture Partner at Best.Energy said, “We're really chuffed to have passed the assessment to become an Includability verified employer. The 5 pillars are central to the success of our people and to our community here at Best.Energy. Sustainability, talent development, wellbeing & mental health and fostering an inclusive workplace are incredibly important to us and are things we're working hard on improving all the time. We're not perfect, but we are working towards always being better and providing our most important asset - our people - the best environment we can to thrive and be happy.” 

Includability is a platform centred around community. It has been developed to raise expectation, increase employer accountability and create a new standard for what the recruitment sector should deliver through engagement, collaboration and regularly sharing best practice.

Includability provides a job board to all Includability Committed Employers and Official Partners. It aims to provide inspiration and action for positive change in the workplace. Our vision is to be the number one job platform of choice for employers and job seekers and to positively contribute towards a society that is free from discrimination will be achieved through clear communication, collaboration and decisive action.

What makes us different from other community platforms and job boards is every employer advertising on the platform is independently verified using a 5-Star Verification process, or 6-Star Verification process for recruitment agencies, to ensure companies are committed towards the areas of diversity and inclusion, environment and sustainability, mental health, wellbeing, and talent management.

Paul Smith, Founder of Includability, said: “We are delighted to welcome Best.Energy into our Includability Community. It’s great that they were committed to working with our Verification Partners to obtain Includability Committed Employer status. By achieving this, Best.Energy has displayed excellent intentions and transparency. Completing our verification process means they are now part of a growing community of like-minded organisations that will support each other to share best practice, overcome obstacles, empower employees and work collaboratively to create an inclusive culture. I am very excited that we will be taking this journey together.”
