The ECITB has now approved two new diversity and inclusion training courses to help employers make a positive impact in the workplace and enjoy the business benefits that result from encouraging and embracing inclusive behaviours.
Three new one-day virtual courses, delivered by STC Global and Rewards Training respectively, cover diversity, inclusion and unconscious bias. They build on theoretical knowledge and enable candidates to make a positive impact in the workplace by including discussions, practical exercises and reflection along with consolidation of the learning.
Chris Claydon, ECITB Chief Executive, said: “The ECITB is committed to helping industry build workplaces where employees can reach their full potential and individual differences are valued and respected.
“These new courses are certified by the ECITB to an industry-set standard and are aimed to encourage employers to take positive steps to raise awareness of diversity and inclusion across their workforce.”
The Introduction to Diversity and Inclusion course is run by Rewards Training. It covers the business case for diversity and inclusion, the importance of inclusive behaviour in the workplace, the governance, policies, law and language and challenging non-inclusive behaviour in the workplace.
