Diversity is one of integratedliving’s core values

Written by Liz Moore, Communications Partner with integratedliving

Great teams and happy clients are found when there is respect for each other’s differences.

At integratedliving, we bring people together by respecting diversity in our homes, communities and the workplace. Diversity is one of integratedliving’s core values. Our leaders recognise the significance and benefits of diversity across our team and our clients, whether it’s in age, ability, language, ethnicity, gender, cultural background, sexual orientation, religious belief or another area. 

Our annual Values-Based Awards (VBAs) recognise team members who display a commitment to our core values in the work they do. integratedliving's core values are Respect, Diversity, Unity, Equity, Integrity and Leadership. The VBA for diversity recognises team members who conduct their work with great respect for the differences between individuals. These team members know that it is in respecting our contrasts that we can also find and celebrate our underlying common ground and humanity.
Here we showcase some of our recent past winners, and those who’ve recently been nominated for the 2023/24 Diversity award.
