Today is National Day for Staff Networks

Today marks the first ever National Day for Staff Networks, which aims to formally recognise the work of staff networks in the UK workplace.

The organisers of the day decided there was a need for such a day after noticing the benefits that Staff Networks give to businesses and the hard work that goes in to creating an effective group by Leaders, who often run the networks on top of their day jobs.

Staff Network Groups create safe communities in which employees from all different groups can express themselves and gain support to raise issues and feel accepted in the workplace. They are key to enabling employees to discuss barriers and devise practical, creative and commercially viable solutions to reduce the challenges faced by certain groups. In a nutshell, staff networks are making work better, which is the theme of the day.

There are three aims to the day:

Celebrate

The days is meant to encourage employers across the UK to celebrate how staff networks, through their insight, innovation and intelligence, add value and help make constructive use of differences, improving the organisation as a whole.

Inspiration

A call to action for all staff networks to identify ways in which they can work together in the future to continue to create best practises and foster inclusion in the workplace

Transformation

To change the conversation around the power of staff networks so that they are seen as business critical
