ServiceIQ has joined the nationwide Pride Pledge.
ServiceIQ Executive Director, Tony Laskey said that the company is committed to supporting and recognising its rainbow family, and those of its customers, suppliers, and partners, by signing up for the Pride Pledge.
“Inclusion and diversity are important to us, not just because we want to be an employer of choice, but because these are cornerstones of so much of our nation’s service sectors. Employers and employees in hospitality, retail, tourism, travel, and aviation understand and value all individuals and their right to be themselves,” said Laskey.
Laskey said that the company has worked internally for many months to ensure that its rainbow members were included, and has put in place a support system should they need it. ServiceIQ has now taken another step, and publicly committed to the Pride Pledge statement and the values it entails.
“For us, the journey is quite new, but we are delighted to be showing that we are taking this seriously and doing something about it. We have completed a Pride Pledge Stocktake and are using the report and benchmark to develop and implement initiatives that will see us progress even further,” said Laskey.
The Pride Pledge is a values-based commitment that organisations and individuals can take to demonstrate their dedication to the safety, visibility, and inclusion of the rainbow members of their community and workforce, both internally and externally.
By joining the Pride Pledge, ServiceIQ has committed to the statement and values. The statement asks for a commitment to all LGBTQIA+ (rainbow) people having the freedom to be safe, included, healthy and visible and the company will use its voice to actively support and celebrate rainbow communities within the workplace.
