Churchill joins Neurodiversity in Business Charter

Churchill Group has signed the Neurodiversity in Business (NiB) charter, an initiative launched in 2021 aimed at helping to ensure greater workplace inclusion of the neurodivergent community.

NiB is an industry forum created to support the participation of neurodivergent individuals in the workplace launched at the Houses of Parliament. The organisation draws upon the cumulative knowledge of neurodivergent experts and leading companies to share best practices and improve the employment and experience of the neurodiverse workforce.

Melanie Taylor, HR Director, Churchill Group said: “Across Churchill’s group of specialist businesses we believe in always do right, always seek better and always put people first. It’s important to us that our colleagues feel they can bring their whole self to work and flourish. As we work closely with our partners and clients, we continue to grow our truly inclusive culture and workforce.

“Our partnership to NiB demonstrates the commitment to our colleagues, the communities in which we work and creating opportunities to thrive. NiB has various big names as a part of their founding members, including some mutual clients with Churchill. Working alongside our clients this way and demonstrating our shared values is extremely important to us.”

Churchill Group’s guest services provider On Verve supports neurodiversity across the business by offering employees extra support with technology if they choose to utilise it, such as screen masking software that reduces distractions or screen tints that ease eye strain. Churchill says providing employees with an environment that allows them to succeed at work is the first step towards workplace inclusion.

NiB’s CEO, Dan Harris, commented: “We are delighted that the Churchill Group has become a founding member of NiB. It signals their commitment to ensuring a truly inclusive workplace and a desire to strive for the best in diversity and inclusion standards.

“We look forward to working with Churchill Group and all our members in delivering meaningful change for the neurodivergent across business.”

Metro Rod Drainage and Plumbing Survey

With the current economic crisis resulting in higher prices and more of a squeeze on resources, FMs need to ensure that they have robust building and maintenance services in place to control costs and reduce the need for emergency repairs. When it comes to drainage and plumbing there are also the challenges of dealing with extreme weather, from droughts to flooding, the need to meet stringent regulations and to avoid causing environmental damage.

UK drainage specialist, Metro Rod, has launched a survey which explores the main areas of interest for FMs in maintaining drainage and plumbing, including how they currently assess their supply chains to ensure they’re working with partners that meet the highest possible standards and provide value for money.

The results will be published online so that you can see how you compare to others within the sector.

The survey should take just 5-10 minutes of your time, and as a thank you, you will be entered into a prize draw, where one lucky winner will be picked at random to receive a £100 Amazon voucher.
