Pilots drive the way for National Equality Standard

Thu, 13 Jun 2013
National Equality Standard
Some “quite significant pilots” will have contributed to the development of criteria for the new National Equality Standard (NES) aimed to go to market this autumn, according to an NES board member.

Raj Tulsiani, also chief executive officer and co-founder of Green Park Interim and Executive Search, tells Recruiter that large UK employers have participated in testing and helping NES – currently an Ernst & Young subsidiary – to refine the offering which will help organisations to measure their performance in diversity and inclusion.

All six equality strands – race, age, gender, disability, religion & belief, and sexual orientation – will be covered by the NES.

“We’ve done some quite significant pilots, and are incorporating that learning,” Tulsiani said.

Tulsiani pointed out that Green Park is “one of the few SMEs [small-and-medium-sized enterprises] involved” in NES at this stage. “We’ve put our money where our mouth is”, he added, in working with NES to “create a bandwidth [of expertise and experience] across all strands of diversity, by business for business”.

Achieving the standard will involve a detailed assessment and the payment of a fee, based on company size. Organisers have emphasised that businesses will be assessed on realistic, pragmatic criteria based on company size and sector, among other factors.
