Vaultex join The Valuable 500 community
We are extremely proud to announce that Vaultex have joined The Valuable 500 – a campaign putting Disability Inclusion on the global leadership agenda.
What does this mean for Vaultex?
As a company built on values, Vaultex continually strive to maintain a workplace where everyone feels valued and respected.
We’re already proud of the work we’ve done around diversity; our recently published Diversity Report is testament to our desire to create a culture of inclusivity for all of our people.
However we’re always looking for new ways to continue to improve.
In 2020 our agenda will be driven through a revised diversity strategy, which will expand to incorporate multiple strands of diversity – including disability, which is why we’re so proud to have joined The Valuable 500 community.
As part of this campaign, we have signed a commitment statement, ensuring that Disability Inclusion is discussed and prioritised at the highest level of our organisation.
“Our people have always been the key to our success, celebrating diversity in every shape and form is at the heart of Vaultex as a business and our core values,” says CEO Phil Vaughan.
“I’m so proud that Vaultex have joined the Valuable 500, showcasing our continued commitment and support towards ensuring that disability and inclusion remains at the top of our agenda”.
Vaultex’s Valuable 500 Commitment:
At Vaultex we are proud of our diverse and inclusive culture and we will continue to ensure that disability inclusion is prioritised at board level.
We are committed to breaking down the barriers and stigma surrounding mental health and disability. Providing a supportive and inclusive environment, raising awareness and empowering our people to discuss these issues will remain at the top of our agenda.
We will place a larger focus on promoting awareness of visible and non-visible disabilities both within Vaultex and in surrounding communities, sharing best practices for inclusivity and creating an open forum for educational discussions.
Through partnering with local schools and disability organisations we will open up our current employability programme to ensure it is actively inclusive; offering workshops, work experience and internships to people with disabilities. Through these partnerships we also intend to learn how we can enhance our own recruitment, training and development opportunities where disability is concerned.
Our Vaultex values support this commitment as we encourage everybody to communicate with respect, openness and honesty and if we say we will do something, we will.
What is The Valuable 500?
The Valuable 500 was founded by Caroline Casey, a Disability Right Activist who used to work as a management consultant whilst being legally registered as blind – but hid her disability for a long time.
This prompted her to organise a panel at the world economic forum to talk about disability, which progressed to launching the global movement Valuable 500.
