Our Society Purpose ‘Creating a sustainable for all’ puts equity, diversity and inclusion at the core of how we do things at Central Co-op.

Every colleague brings something unique and when we bring together those with different experiences, ages and perspectives, we’re a better team. We know diverse teams are more creative, innovative, and empathetic.

We’re open to all

As an inclusive and community-based business, we welcome people from all walks of life, who help to fully represent our Members and customers.

We want all colleagues to feel welcomed and included. At Central Co-op, we have an Inclusion Delivery Group which meets every month. Colleagues from across all areas of our business can take part and so far this year they’ve been busy building awareness and celebrating lots of events.

Meet some of our colleagues who’ve taken part

Inclusion Working Group

We partner with Diversity in Retail, supporting many colleagues through the Global Women Leader Programme, Ethnic Senior Leaders Programme and Ethnic Future Leaders. These are cross-industry programmes designed to provide experiences and learning opportunities to support career progression for women and ethnic minorities.

Upholding inclusion

There are more than 7,800 individuals working together across our different business areas, and we strive to create a culture that embraces the skills and experience of every single one. We know that having an inclusive workplace encourages more people to apply for jobs, and to stay with us for the long term. If you put yourself forward, you’ll be considered solely on your ability to do a great job, and nothing else.

Inclusive policies that support all colleagues

We support all our colleagues, no matter what they’re going through.

We offer:

Menopause support, Trans and Non-Binary support, domestic abuse support, fertility treatment and pregnancy loss support.

We’ve signed the Menopause Workplace Pledge and we’re working closely with Fertility Matters at Work to be one of their first 100 companies committed to becoming fertility friendly.
