Morson is delighted to be named Top Employer for our work on gender inclusivity by employment website VERCIDA.
The annual awards are highly competitive and include big industry names geared towards fair and people-focused employment. Entrants are judged according to factors like diversity initiatives within their own business, the amount and type of content shared on the VERCIDA website, partnerships with diverse initiatives, external awards received that year and how they rank as candidate favourites.
Morson featured in the top ten list for gender inclusivity, a list which includes HS2, Atkins and Bloomberg.
VERCIDA is a careers site tuned to diversity and inclusion that only works with employers committed to values, equality, respect, culture, inclusion, diversity and accessibility. Employers use this site to showcase who they are, the jobs they have and the working environment they wish to create in order to attract a rich variety of people.
The panel behind the awards are keen to explore the power of using a diversity-led careers site to reach new audiences and promote diversity and inclusion at all levels. This is part of VERCIDA’s wider intentions to help build more successful and diverse teams by supporting and facilitating a wide skill mix to employers.
VERCIDA Chief Executive Officer Morgan Lobb explained, “The power of what we do is to make job search about more than just a vacancy. It’s building an environment where people bring their whole self to work, talk about success and together remove the barriers to great employment. We’re proud to be standing with our award winners who have done this so much this year in changing the way we work for the better. I congratulate them all.”
Adrian Adair, Chief Operations Officer for Morson International, said “As a business, we’re practising what we preach and leading by example and it’s great to see that celebrated with this award. We’re the only recruitment agency to commit to a target for the number of female contractors that we employ. That was good for us to put a stick in the ground and have something to aim for. That’s really enabled us to focus on what we’re trying to do and we look forward to continuing to be a leading light.”
