Launch of DEI framework

The GoodCorporation Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) framework is a comprehensive set of responsible management practices designed to help businesses effectively demonstrate their commitment to promoting DEI.

Creating the right workplace culture has never been more essential for organisations. Not only can businesses that prioritise DEI gain a sustainable and competitive advantage, but they may also experience higher retention rates, increased workforce engagement, and greater innovation. However, implementing the necessary steps can be challenging for many businesses, as it is often difficult to know where to start.

From the initial step of planning your company's approach to DEI to embedding and evaluating your complete DEI strategy, our framework can provide the guidance you need.

With the inclusion of this framework, GoodCorporation offers a range of DEI consultancy services to help organisations build and integrate an effective DEI strategy. To learn more about our DEI services, please visit our webpage using the link below.
