Harvey Nash launches inclusion passport to support employees

The Harvey Nash Group has launched an ‘inclusion passport’ to support employees who may need reasonable adjustments in the workplace due to a health condition, disability or another personal situation.

The Inclusion Passport provides a confidential and structured process by which needs are assessed, support provided and reasonable adjustments made, a company statement said. Examples include:

  • Support for life changes like the menopause
  • Putting in place flexible working to support caring for a family member
  • Support with hidden disabilities like dyslexia, ADHD or dyspraxia
  • Making adjustments to support religious practices.

“The passport is stored confidentially, and stays with the employee so if they move jobs within the group or have a new manager, the passport can be shared with the relevant person so they are immediately informed, making the conversation easier,” the company statement said.

Harvey Nash has 2,500 employees worldwide.
