Salford-based social enterprise, Unlimited Potential, is proud to announce that it has become a Member of the Greater Manchester Good Employment Charter.
The aim of the Good Employment Charter is to improve employment standards across the city-region. These improvements include measures such as paying the real Living Wage, implementing flexible working options, and adopting fair recruitment practices.
Unlimited Potential has moved from Supporter to Member status due to its commitment to employment excellence, having demonstrated that it meets the criteria in all seven characteristics of good employment.
“We are pleased to be the first social enterprise to become a Member of the Charter”, said Chris Dabbs, Chief Executive. “Offering good employment is not only core to our values, but also to our effective operation as a business.”
The seven good employment characteristics developed by the Charter are:
- secure work
- flexible work
- real Living Wage
- engagement and voice
- people management
- health and well-being
Unlimited Potential is amongst a variety of nine Greater Manchester employers in all sectors moving from Supporters to Members of the Charter, alongside The Co-op Bank, Greater Manchester Centre for Voluntary Organisation (GMCVO), KPMG, Macc, Michael Page, Peel L&P, Pozzoni Architects, and William Hare ltd.
This achievement comes soon after Unlimited Potential’s reaccreditation by Investors in People. It is also accredited as both a Disability Confident Leader and a Living Wage employer.
