The UK National Equality Standard was developed by business for business and sets clear equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) criteria against which companies are independently assessed. The NES is now being utilised globally.

It is supported by the Home Office and the Confederation of British Industry (CBI). The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) was involved in its development and launch.

The NES has become the accepted standard for inclusiveness in business across the UK and numerous organisations across all sectors have now completed the process which has generated outstanding feedback from both the public and private sectors.

Participation in a NES assessment ensures long term sustainable change, a beneficial impact in productivity and growth and provides a detailed roadmap with recommendations to help implement those areas requiring improvement.

"I am very proud to be associated with the NES which was conceived and created by business for business to help us make real progress on meeting one of the key challenges we face." - Sir David Bell, Chairman, NES.

"The NES is an essential for any business wanting to succeed in the War for Talent. Understanding, then tackling Diversity and Inclusion in any organisation has been proven to make absolute business sense. It should be integral to the business strategy and not just seen as simply addressing a problem." - Amanda Clack, Partner, EY and President, Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors.

"The NES provides businesses with a recognised national standard in the world of diversity and inclusion for business to reach and then build upon. There can be no doubt that in order to thrive in the global environment it is essential that UK businesses have inclusive working environments that harness Peoples’ talents. The NES provide businesses with a mechanism to make sure that it is reaching the necessary goals." - Nicola Rabson, Global Head, Employment & Incentives, Linklaters LLP.
