Award-winning charity and community centre The Burnside Centre, based on Langley Estate in Middleton, has recently become a member of the Greater Manchester Good Employment Charter.
The GM Good Employment Charter is an initiative of Metro Mayor Andy Burnham to bring fair, transparent and good employment to everyone in Greater Manchester.
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.
“I encourage all organisations across Rochdale, from all sectors, to undertake the assessment and review process to raise standards within people management.
“This scheme aims to create a positive impact by promoting crucial aspects of good employment practices which support the needs of our local workforce, these include things like secure employment, meaningful inclusivity and equality, flexible working arrangements and paid a real living wage.
“All of this then benefits the wider society by embedding good employment practices, that are accessible to everyone.”
Earlier this year, Burnside Centre became accredited as a real living wage employer, paying more than the government minimum wage for those over the age of 23.
