NG Leads the Way for Inclusivity in Nottingham Property Industry
18th May 2018
Commercial property specialists NG Chartered Surveyors have become the only agents of their kind in Nottingham to be awarded the prestigious RICS Inclusive Employer Quality Mark.
The Quality Mark drives behaviour changes by encouraging all firms large and small, to look carefully at their employment practices and have inclusivity at the heart of what they do. It means NG is committed to improving inclusivity and to monitoring performance by completing a bi-annual self-assessment, which means gathering specific inclusivity data, and submitting it to RICS.
The Quality Mark is testament to the confidence shown by NG in its director Sunny Landa, and management surveyor Suzannah Adcock, says Richard Sutton, fellow director.
Richard said: “We’re delighted to be recognised as an inclusive workplace. We place great emphasis on inclusivity, diversity and gender balance and Sunny and Suzannah are a prime example of this.
“Sunny first joined us as part of his placement year from Nottingham Trent University. We then offered him a position in the depths of recession. He has worked his way all the way up to shareholding director by the age of 30 and is the future of NG.
“Suzannah’s work for NG is testament to our growing reputation as one of the most innovative, forward-thinking agencies in the region, and shows that we’re able to attract some of the best talent in the East Midlands to come and work with us.”
“All too often the surveying sector is dominated with middle-aged, white men. Once again, NG is leading the way in pushing our sector towards a more inclusive attitude.”
