Centre manager Kerry Edwards said: “Burnside Centre is committed to best practice and investment in people. That journey starts with our staff members who we invest in as a priority so that their talents can thrive. This scheme aims to create a positive impact by promoting crucial aspects of good employment practices which support the needs of our local workforce, including secure employment, meaningful inclusivity and equality, flexible working arrangements. All of this then benefits the wider society by embedding good employment practices, that are accessible to everyone.”
