Sedgwick has secured partnerships with multiple charitable organisations in the UK to further demonstrate and strengthen its commitment to the community.

Following its commitments, the firm was one of the first to sign the Race at Work Charter as well as showing support for the initiative led by the Business in the Community (BITC).

By signing the charter, the group formally expanded its support to promoting diversity across all levels of the company, making racial equality a top priority, and placing diversity and inclusion at the heart of its work culture.

Other strategic partnerships that Sedgwick has forged in the UK include one with Social Enterprise UK which helps develop social and/or environmental programmes with some of the biggest companies in the country.

With this partnership, Sedgwick vows to operate ethically, protect the environment, and support colleagues and communities across the country.

Sandra Kerr, race equality director at BITC, said: “By signing the charter, they are showing they aspire to have one of the most inclusive workplaces in the country.

“Together, we can break down barriers in the workplace, raise the aspirations and achievements of talented individuals, and deliver an enormous boost to the long-term economic position of the UK.”

Paul White, CEO for the UK, Sedgwick, added: “We are extremely proud to be working with important organisations and social enterprises to further expand our contributions to good causes and strengthen our social commitment across the country.

“We believe increasing diversity across the business plays a pivotal role in strengthening our position in the market and supporting our vision for growth and future success.It is important to support organisations that dedicate themselves to promoting social enterprises.”
