Implement an equality plan

Developing an equality plan - Interface (video)

Linda Glass, HR Manager at global carpet tile manufacturer Interface, explains how they developed an equality plan for their business with support from the Equality Commission for Northern Ireland.

Established in 1973 and based in Craigavon, Interface is the world's largest manufacturer and producer of carpet tile with just under 200 employees on site and over 2,500 employees worldwide.

Interface's equality plan has become the framework within which they review their business activities in terms of equality goals and priorities.

Here Linda, her colleague Sorcha Eastwood and Paul Oakes from the Equality Commission for Northern Ireland explore how the equality plan was developed, how it has been implemented and why it has been beneficial to the business.
