Committed to Good Employment in Greater Manchester

EMERGE is Recognised in the Greater Manchester Good Employment Charter

The Greater Manchester Combined Authority initiated the Greater Manchester Good Employment Charter, recognising  EMERGE 3Rs. FareShare Greater Manchester’s parent charity has been recognised within it. This commendable initiative aims to promote diverse, equal and inclusive working conditions across the region. It also actively contributes to establishing a new benchmark for workplace excellence, setting a standard that cannot be overstated.

The Charter is a voluntary membership and assessment scheme that approves members based on seven characteristics of good employment. These are:

  • Secure work.
  • Flexible work.
  • Pay.
  • Engagement and Voice.
  • Recruitment.
  • People Management.
  • Health and Wellbeing.

The Greater Manchester Combined Authority created the charter to promote diverse, equal and inclusive working conditions across the region. Acceptance into the Good Employment Charter recognises our investment in building a workplace where employees can grow, develop and thrive.

“I am really proud that EMERGE has been accredited by the GM Good Employment Charter, it recognises the efforts we have invested in building a fair and inclusive workplace, fostering an environment that provides opportunities for everyone” – Lucy Danger, EMERGE CEO

We’re committed to actively contributing to the ongoing success of the Charter. Furthermore, our dedication extends to enhancing the well-being of Greater Manchester and its residents.

The Charter’s focus on diversity and inclusion extends beyond individual organisations. Furthermore, its far-reaching impact is poised to transform Greater Manchester into a region where every worker can thrive, irrespective of their background. The ripple effect of this initiative promises a brighter future for all.
