We are immensely proud to become a Member of the Greater Manchester Good Employment Charter, which recognises our achievements and commitment to good employment practices underpinned by Equity, Diversity and Inclusion. Supporting our employees, creating an inclusive environment and providing them with opportunities for advancement and growth is central to our culture at AECOM, and our office in Salford – which opened one year ago – is a great example of how we create diverse work environments where everyone can thrive. We’re delighted to join the growing number of businesses in Greater Manchester supporting the Good Employment Charter and continuing our commitment to the city-region.

Our people are our most important asset and we want to show our commitment to them by outlining what we do well, but also how we can improve on the characteristics of good employment. We are proud to join organisations across Greater Manchester, such as the Northern Care Alliance and Hawkley Brook Medical Practice, in Membership of the Good Employment Charter. We look forward to working with the Charter and its Members, to not only improve the experience of work for our own colleagues, but working with other health and care organisations to improve employment practices across our city-region.
