The Essex Business Community Pledge is a call to action for employers of all shapes and sizes. It invites businesses to commit to attracting and retaining talented staff.

Businesses that sign the pledge will:

  • meet Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) requirements
  • receive ongoing support around training, wellbeing and retention
  • receive digital badging to celebrate their involvement
  • be able to better support their own employees’ needs

There are three levels to the pledge:

  • Bronze – achieve Pillar 1 actions
  • Silver – achieve Pillar 1 and actions from one additional pillar
  • Gold – Achieve Pillar 1 and actions from two further pillars

Our Skills & Employability team will help you progress through these levels.

You can pledge your support via the Essex Business Community Pledge form.
