Characteristics of Good Employment

Supporter Commitment: As a Supporter of the Good Employment Charter, we fully support the Charter’s seven characteristics of good employment which set out what good employment practice, effective employee engagement and good and fair employment looks like. We are committed to improving our employment practice in line with the characteristics of the Good Employment Charter

1. Extending Secure Work

We commit to giving our employees clarity over the hours they work and not to use unnecessary forms of insecure employment, so they have more security over their income and can manage their work and non-work commitments more easily.

2. Extending Flexible Work

We will give employees the opportunity to work flexibly wherever possible, providing greater equality of opportunity, creating a more diverse and inclusive workplace and helping us make better use of the skills and talents of our workforce.

3. Working Towards Paying a Real Living Wage

Set at the level recommended by the Living Wage Foundation, so our employees can achieve a decent standard of living and that we, as employers, can benefit from better retention and workforce engagement, with the savings that brings.

4. Improving Workplace Engagement & Voice

So that our staff can fully contribute to the direction and success of our organisation and shape their roles, with recognised trade unions facilitating the expression of the employees’ collective voice where possible, building effective employee engagement activity and with support from relevant professional bodies.

5. Developing Excellent Recruitment Practices

So we as employers can take full advantage of the diversity and talents across all Greater Manchester communities through transparent, inclusive, and fair processes, engaging with schools, further education and higher education providers and employment programmes, making sure our staff have opportunities to continually develop and use their skills and experience.

6. Improving People Management

We value all our employees and will develop fair and inclusive workplaces, investing in the training and development of the workforce, including managers, and inspiring and motivating staff to make sure we are a successful and high performing organisation.

7. Fostering Employee Health & Wellbeing

We support the mental and physical health of all our employees, including adjustments for people with long-term conditions and disabilities, delivering high standards of health and safety in the workplace, and so reducing the costs of absences and providing the benefits of a more diverse workforce.
