Harbour Homes Wins Diversity Award

Harbour Homes, a social landlord based in Leith, has recently received recognition from The National Centre for Diversity (NCFD) for its outstanding achievement in retaining the prestigious Investors in Diversity Silver Award. This accolade highlights the company’s unwavering dedication to promoting equality, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) in the workplace.

Through a rigorous assessment process, The National Centre for Diversity conducted staff interviews, facilitated group discussions, and reviewed internal documents to assess Harbour Homes’ approach to EDI. The company showcased a strong commitment to enhancing its EDI practices and recently initiated a new culture project to further strengthen its inclusive environment.

The Investors in Diversity Award serves as a national equality standard, assisting organisations in integrating FREDIE (fairness, respect, equality, diversity, inclusion, and engagement) principles and behaviours into their corporate culture. The award offers three distinct levels of recognition: Bronze (commitment), Silver (embedding), and Gold (leading).

Ngeme Ntuli, the director of group finance and business support at Harbour Homes, expressed his satisfaction with the company’s journey with The National Centre for Diversity. He stated, “We are dedicated to embedding the FREDIE principles within our culture, and I am proud of our staff’s efforts in retaining the Silver Award. We will heed the recommendations provided to strive for Gold in our next accreditation.”

The National Centre for Diversity praised Harbour Homes, acknowledging that the company has demonstrated a consistent and purposeful commitment to integrating diversity and inclusion into its organisational culture over the past six years.
