College earns top marks as an employer

KIRKLEES College is investing in its workforce and has achieved the national quality mark of Investors in Diversity at level one.
Investors in Diversity is an all encompassing approach to managing equality, diversity and inclusion effectively and the college is now aiming for level two status.
Human resources manager at the college Tracy Foster is now working on the next stage of the action plan.
She said: “We want to make sure that all our current and future employees continue to be supported and encouraged to maximise their potential and feel valued as an individual.
“Although the legal and business case for equality and diversity and inclusion is a strong one, it is also a matter of fully embracing and valuing differences that exist in and amongst our workforce and the surrounding communities.
“We are committed to equality, diversity and inclusion in all aspects of our business and we want to be recognised as an excellent employer and are taking positive steps to encourage diversity in our recruitment and selection processes.”
