Greggs awarded National Equality Standard

Greggs has been awarded the National Equality Standard in recognition of its efforts to improve diversity and inclusion.

The achievement forms part of Greggs’ commitment to embracing diversity, which is one one of the company’s ten pledges to make “help make the world a better place” by 2025.

Launched in 2013 by EY with involvement from the Equality and Human Rights Commission,  the standard is supported by the Home Office and the Confederation of British Industry.

To qualify, organisations are independently reviewed via an assessment against a defined set of criteria and best practice standards. Companies must meet a minimum of 25 out of the 35 competencies with a degree of consistency across each of the NES’ seven pillars.

Roisin Currie, chief executive of Greggs, said: “I am extremely proud of our collective efforts from colleagues across the whole business to achieve this fantastic recognition. However, the work does not stop here, whilst the accreditation is a significant milestone for us we need to keep this momentum and continue to work hard together to embrace diversity and inclusion across all areas of our business.”
