Meet Our Verification Partners

 

As part of the Includability 5 Star Verification Process for Employers and our Six Star Verification Process for Recruitment Agencies, each company looking to advertise on the platform will have the opportunity to engage with our charming Verification Partners. It’s a wonderful way to celebrate the great things you are already doing and provide expert support where you might need it the most – they’re all super lovely people so will do their very best to work around your busy diaries once you have completed the initial Company Commitment Survey. We celebrate commitment and intent so please don’t feel you have to be the finished article with us – building knowledge, supporting each other and sharing great practice is at the centre of our Includability Community.

So here they are good people, proudly introducing our Partners and how they will be awarding you those Verification Stars.

The Diversity & Inclusion Star – Verified by Flex Wellbeing

Flex Wellbeing is a modern training and consultancy provider, specialising in equality, diversity and inclusion, and employee wellbeing.

They believe that D&I should be creative and meaningful, whilst also improving organisational culture and productivity. As the overlap between the ED&I sector and the employee wellbeing sector continues to grow, Flex Wellbeing will continue to develop its presence in both spaces.

Flex Wellbeing will award organisations who are genuinely committed to D&I and have tried to develop their programme to a benchmark level. If you’re not quite there, then please don’t worry – through a 45-minute assessment, they will work with you to see if the Star can be awarded or if a support package can be offered to bring you to the required level.

It’s a very worthwhile journey and the Flex Wellbeing Team are really looking forward to being with you along the way!

The Sustainability Star – Verified by Prosperah

This Star will be awarded automatically if your organisation is already B Corp Certified, B Corp Pending, Planet Mark Certified or CSR-A Accredited, however the Star will also be presented if an organisation is able to provide good intentions in creating a sustainability strategy – for example, a net-zero focus, staff volunteering days, community and charitable support, or even embedding the UN Sustainable Development Goals across your website.

Prosperah enables organisations to unleash their greater purpose for tangible business value, helping them to explore a space where social responsibility and sustainability are reimagined as a competitive advantage.

They guide businesses through a journey to map their purpose to the Sustainable Development Goals and through enhanced stakeholder consultation, they’ll set key priority SDGs and targets to create your Purpose Book.

The Mental Health Star – Verified by Mental Health Charter

Mental Health Charter (MHC)'s purpose is to provide a flexible and consistent charter to enable all businesses in the UK to access mental health support, provide awareness and training and put in place a structure and systems to support people in the workplace.

The team will conduct a short survey over the phone to discuss Mental Health current procedures/practices with free advice offered.

You will then be given a complimentary Bronze Membership (with accompanying logo) to the Mental Health Charter as a Committed To Action Employer - the first step to creating a mentally healthy workplace.

The Talent Management Star – Verified by Unleashed

Unleashed is a new kind of HR Consultancy that helps organisations be successful by making them more inclusive.

This process will involve a 45-minute consultation with the Unleashed Team to review current recruitment and retention processes and provide any guidance necessary to support you.

The Wellbeing Star – Verified by Outliers Wellbeing

Outliers Wellbeing will have an initial call to chat about what you're doing in the confusing world of wellbeing, how you're doing it and what your plans are. Just an informal chat between two lovely people.

They will then send a link to an Insights Questionnaire that they will ask you to fill out, not to analyse and judge every facet of your business, but just to gain a further understanding of your wellbeing provision.

A follow-up call will then be booked to run through the insights at which point the Wellbeing Star will be awarded if enough evidence has been gathered on your strategy and provision, or will chat-through next steps if further support is needed. 

The Diversity In Recruitment Star – Verified by Diversity in Recruitment (recruitment agencies only)

During an initial discovery call, their aim is to fully understand your motivations and commitment to making your recruitment services fully accessible and inclusive.

They will also explore the work that you have planned or have completed so far on your Diversity & Inclusion journey, and the immediate and long-term goals and objectives for your D&I activity.

This insight will also help the team understand the support and guidance that you may need, so that they can support your recruitment business as it works to remove the barriers underrepresented and minoritised candidates face when looking for work.
