South East Coast Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (SECAmb) is pleased to have achieved a gold award from enei (Employers Network for Equality and Inclusion).

The TIDE (Talent Inclusion and Diversity Evaluation) gold award is the third year in a row SECAmb has been recognised by the organisation following two silver awards.

SECAmb is the only ambulance trust in a record 98 entries from organisations from across 26 sectors. A total of 51 achieved an award with SECAmb among 13 achieving the highly-coveted gold award.

SECAmb will use the benchmark report to implement further improvements in how diversity and inclusion is thoroughly embedded throughout the whole organisation and a part of everything it does.

SECAmb Executive Director of HR & Organisation Development, Ali Mohammed said: “I’m really pleased that our approach to diversity and inclusion has once again been recognised, this year with an enei gold benchmark. We know that we must do lots more to ensure this is embedded throughout the whole organisation but it’s great to see our continued progress recognised in this way.”
