Many Thanks to those of you who responded to our consultation in Spring 2020 on developing Liverpool City Region’s first ever Fair Employment Charter. Most responses were supportive of our suggested approach, and requirements and we look forward to these being reflected in the final Charter.
The COVID-19 Pandemic put into sharp focus the importance of many of the aims of the Charter, and it also meant that we were unable to hold as many stakeholder events as we had planned.
As a result, and taking into account feedback from the Spring consultation, we have developed some areas of the Charter to reflect what respondents told us. There are also number of areas about which we are keen to gain further insight from businesses, employees and all who are interested in Fair Employment. We are also looking to make sure that we put Healthy and Safe working and workplaces at the heart of our Charter, so we are keen to hear feedback on a new and distinct pillar focusing on making sure that the Charter encourages and recognises safe workplaces that support a healthy workforce.
With this in mind we are seeking further thoughts on these areas before publishing our final Charter early next year. Please fill in the survey here and thank you for supporting our drive for Fair Employment across Liverpool City Region.
