The workplace of today is ever-changing and includes employees from all walks of life, and everyone has the right to the same opportunities, no matter who they are, what they look like or where they come from.
Our engaging Equality and Diversity Online Training highlights the importance of inclusivity and why it forms an important part of workplace culture and ethical practice.
The EssentialSkillz Equality and Diversity Online Training Course explains what equality and diversity means and describes specific responsibilities for employers and employees.
It highlights the principles of The Equality Act 2010, outlining key points such as protected characteristics and actions that constitute unfair treatment in a professional setting, such as bullying, harassment, unconscious bias.
Employees have the right to work in an environment where they are able to engage with their responsibilities, contribute effectively and advance in their role without obstacle. From the recruitment process through to everyday practice our training provides employees with guidance on how to cultivate awareness and avoid potential pitfalls in the workplace.
Everyone has a responsibility to promote fairness in the workplace and should help to eliminate discrimination, harassment, victimisation and bullying. Our course outlines what you can do if you or others feel discriminated against and why it is important to report unacceptable behaviour without fear of reprisal.

Our course serves as an effective introduction to equality and diversity issues in the workplace and is suitable for employees at any level.
Under the Act, all individuals have the right to be free from discrimination, bullying, harassment or victimisation within the workplace.
Employers are duty-bound to ensure discrimination does not take place within their organisation. They must have adequate training and policies in place, which should include a strong and unbias reporting process.
Employees are also tasked to ensure that their actions and those of others do not discriminate against or cause harm to others. If they become aware of any such actions, they must report their concerns through the appropriate channels.
Our Equality and Diversity course is regularly updated to ensure technical accuracy and alignment with the latest in best practice and legislation.
