We know this year’s list of the best employers for Diversity & Inclusion management in Poland

25 maja 2022

In this year’s Diversity IN Check survey, 38 companies and organisations were recognized as the most advanced ones in managing diversity, building inclusion within the organisation, and striving for social cohesion. The list is the result of a survey conducted by the Responsible Business Forum, which coordinates the Diversity Charter in Poland. A total of 47 organisations participated in this year’s survey.

The purpose of Diversity IN Check is to diagnose how advanced an organisation is in managing diversity and building an inclusive workplace. The survey questionnaire is based on recognized international standards and guidelines, such as: the Sustainable Development Goals, ISO 26000 and ISO 30415, GRI Standards, OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises. The survey questions were divided into five thematic areas: governance fundamentals, programmes & activities, building engagement, performance indicators, and additional questions related to COVID-19. Scores were awarded for the first three areas.

More and more employers across Poland recognize diversity as both an important value and a key element in managing an organisation, one which also requires constant improvement of the activities in the diversity & inclusion area. Together with our Diversity IN Check partners and patrons, we’re happy to see a growing number of participants in this quite ambitious survey, who are committed to both educate and inspire one another with best practices. Such understanding of the employer’s responsibility is vital, particularly in the context of the present crisis related to the war in Ukraine, and essential in building an inclusive labour market and social cohesion – says Marzena Strzelczak, President & General Director of the Responsible Business Forum.

The list was announced on May 25, during the 9th CSR Marketplace hosted by the Responsible Business Forum. This year’s survey is the second edition.
