Corps Together Shortlisted For The Diversity Network Awards

Corps Together shortlisted for the Diversity Network Awards

We’re thrilled to announce that the Corps Security EDI (Equality, Diversity and Inclusion) initiative, ‘Corps Together’ has been shortlisted for the Outstanding Employee Network of the Year at the prestigious Diversity Network Awards.

This recognition highlights the companies’ efforts to promote diversity and inclusion within Corps Security, and more broadly, across the security industry through a series of people-centred interventions and colleague networking events. These efforts include launching seven colleague networks and setting ambitious commitments to support all disability, neurodiversity, and wellbeing needs for Corps Security employees.

The initiative has driven the businesses focus on disability-confident training for all managers, as well as the ongoing campaign for LGBTQ+ inclusion, highlighted by their recent participation in London Pride.

Seetan Varsani, Divisional Director, who leads the initiative says, “This award nomination is a particular triumph, as it recognises the positive impact our Corps Together initiative has had over the past 12 months. The initiative has been integral in providing under-represented groups a platform to have their voice heard, and supported us in understanding how we can enhance our EDI strategy”

Launched in October 2020, the Corps Together initiative is steered by ‘Corps Together Guardians’, a passionate team of colleagues who  support the organisation in cementing its diversity and inclusion aims and objectives.

Since the colleague networks began in July 2023, the Guardians have taken on additional roles, chairing each network. As the networks have garnered support from across the business, colleagues from outside of the initiative have stepped forward to become Chairs.

The Diversity Network Awards, recognises the important contributions that these networks have to businesses, helping to raise awareness, dismantle barriers, encourage productive conversations and gain invaluable insight into the colleague experience.

We look forward to finding out the results at the awards ceremony that will take place on 27th September 2024 at the InterContinental Hotel in London.
