PSD Group achieve Clear Assured Bronze Accreditation

28/07/2021

PSD Group has been awarded Bronze Standard in Clear Assured, a globally recognised inclusion standard, for its commitment to diversity and inclusion in the workplace.

Businesses that reach Bronze Standard are able to demonstrate that diversity and inclusion are reflected across all policies and processes. It reflects a significant move beyond compliance towards a change in behaviour where diversity and inclusion are recognized as central to success and progress.  Clear Assured is an evidence-based standard with regular assessments monitoring progress and providing direction for the D&I journey.

Simon Tucker-Brown, Managing Director, PSD Group said:

Working with the Clear Company on their Clear Assured accreditation has been one of the best decisions we have taken as a business. D&I is cornerstone of who we are and what we do at PSD and having the opportunity to work with an expert external partner to scrutinise our internal and external processes, collateral and approach has been invaluable.  We are delighted to have achieved the bronze accreditation and see this as the first milestone on our continuing journey. Anna Mäkinen and her team have been supportive, communicative and challenging in equal measure throughout, and we look forward to continuing to work closely with them.

Anna Mäkinen​, Head of Clear Assured said:

This is a fantastic reflection of the hard work and commitment from PSD Group, they were one of the most active organisations in Clear Assured for Q2 and have demonstrated their ability to embed D&I into the everyday experiences of colleagues.  They are well placed to take the next steps towards Silver Standard.

Clear Assured, the global Diversity and Inclusion Standard is an accessible online platform that provides organisations with the D&I expertise and direction needed to support their appetite for fundamental culture change.  Containing the Clear Company’s knowledge, rigorous processes and understanding of what works, the pan diverse Standard is regularly updated with the latest thinking and directs users to activity with proven benefit. With its continuous improvement approach, consistent progression is dependent on a passion to instigate change and challenge current thinking.
