Greater Manchester Chamber is delighted to announce that it has become a member of the Greater Manchester Good Employment Charter.

Members of the Charter have put their commitment to Good Employment into action in their organisations – working hard to meet the criteria in the seven characteristics of Good Employment. These characteristics, when met, work to ensure that a workplace is underpinned by commitment to equality, fair pay, and the opportunity for employees to have a say in how their workplaces are run.

To become a Member of the Charter, the Chamber had to go through an extensive assessment with the Charter and its Technical Review Panel, which included an in-depth evaluation of practices and policies for each characteristic of the Charter to ensure the high standards are being met along with a commitment to continually improve.

The aim of the Good Employment Charter is to improve employment standards across the city region and contribute towards a thriving and productive economy. The seven good employment characteristics developed by the Charter are secure work, flexible work, real living wage, engagement and voice, recruitment, people management, and health and wellbeing. Businesses can also sign up to the Charter’s Supporters’ Network, which asks employers to commit to improve practices and helps them to access appropriate support and resources.
