As part of NHSGGC’s commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion and continuously working towards building a Better Workplace, the One NHS Family campaign has been established to raise awareness of our commitment to acknowledging, supporting and celebrating our diverse workforce.
COVID-19 has highlighted the many health and wider inequalities in our society. It has become increasingly clear that COVID 19 has had a disproportionate impact on many who already face disadvantage. Our One NHS Family campaign is shaped to take coordinated action to support those at risk across our organisation.
We will work together to ensure all colleagues are valued and respected for who they are and the unique part they play in our organisation. We will embed a ‘zero tolerance’ response to behaviour that contradicts our organisational commitments to equality, diversity and inclusion.
Practical support and activity provided by One NHS Family will include promoting and supporting NHSGGC’s staff forums / networks, offering peer support, employee training opportunities and pioneering career development programmes.
More recently, we have launched the new Workplace Adjustment Passport to support employees with a disability, health condition or diversity in the workplace to have, and continue to have, a great experience at work. The Passport encourages and enables discussions at work to be well informed and facilitate progress in a collaborative and supportive way.
