The Greater Manchester Good Employment Charter have announced six new Members! These have transitioned from Supporter status - through proving their commitment to Good Employment across the seven characteristics of Good Employment. 

There are now 49 Member organisations, who are leading the way to making Greater Manchester a better place to live, work and play. 

Councillor Elise Wilson, Leader of Stockport Council, announces the new Members. We are delighted to work with Elise to celebrate their achievement, and to learn that 5200 employees across the region are benefiting from being employed by a Member of the Charter.


The employers progressing from ‘Supporters’ to ‘Members’ of the Charter are:


Each employer completed a thorough assessment, which was reviewed and approved by a technical review panel and Charter board. This is to ensure each characteristic of the Charter is addressed in their policies and procedures. As our Membership tier grows, our Members continue to work to improve and build upon their good employment practice.


The Chief Executive of TfGM, Eamonn Boylan, said:

“Becoming a member of the Good Employment Charter was something we felt very strongly about, not only for the people within our organisation, but for employment in Greater Manchester as a whole.


“The city-region is embarking on a new era; one that is greener, fairer, and more prosperous for everyone living and working here.


“As a large organisation employing hundreds of people, we – and many like us – have a key role to play to make sure this happens. We have a duty to foster a positive working environment, where colleagues feel supported, are given fair pay and conditions and the opportunity to grow and develop.


“Without our people, we couldn’t deliver the wide-ranging programmes and services we do, which make a positive difference to people and businesses across the region, and I am delighted TfGM has been recognised in this way.”


Congratulations to all the new Members! The Good Employment Charter's goal is to raise employment standards throughout the city region and contribute to a thriving and productive economy. Employers can start their journey with the Charter as a Supporter, which asks employers to commit to improving practice, whilst being provided with adequate support and resources.
