Good diversity in practice
Diversity in Business Accreditation (DiBA) is an assessment and development tool developed by EW Group to assess diversity practice within your organisation and provide an effective and simple development framework. The tool assists organisations in meeting regulatory standards, as well as to harness and manage diversity effectively for business success.
Designed to support and improve core business performance, DiBA’s set of good practice standards address a range of business functions, including:
- client satisfaction
- people and performance management
- employee engagement
- community engagement
- supplier diversity
DiBA will help you to ensure that your business is better prepared and equipped to respond to the demands of regulatory assessments and complies with requirements set out in the Equality Act 2010.
In addition to the Equality Act 2010, DiBA is aligned with Public Duties, and other regulatory legislation such as the Solicitors Regulatory Authority Code of Conduct and Outcome Focused Objectives.
And it has been reviewed against other quality marks too - such as Investors in People, Lexcel and Customer Service Excellence - streamlining assessment activity.
DiBA is fully endorsed by SFEDI, The Government recognised standards setting body for Business Enterprise and Business Support.
