Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service has been nominated for a ‘Most Inclusive Employer’ Award.
The nomination forms part of the Celebrating Neurodiversity Awards which is run by Genius Within. The winners will be announced at the awards ceremony on Thursday 24 March at The London Stock Exchange.
Chief Fire Officer Rod Hammerton said: “I am delighted that we have been nominated for this award which recognises the work the Service does to ensure we have a diverse and inclusive workforce.
“We’ve been working to create a supportive culture where people’s differences are embraced and celebrated, including neurodiversity. Having staff who think differently and work in alternative ways is seen as huge asset for the Service and a positive influence on the services we provide to the community.”
