We are proud to have taken another pioneering step this week by becoming the first employer based in Rochdale Borough to become a member of the Greater Manchester Good Employment Charter.
Greater Manchester is the first area of the country to adopt a Good Employment Charter. The Charter was developed collectively by the Greater Manchester Combined Authority and the Mayor of Greater Manchester - working alongside local Councils, trade unions, employers, and employees.
We have been a supporter of the Charter since February 2020 and our membership was officially announced on 25th February 2021.
The Charter outlines seven key characteristics of good employment. These are secure work; flexible work; paying the real living wage; engagement and voice; good recruitment; positive people management; and employee health and wellbeing.
