Hence, we are delighted to announce our recent achievement - the Good Work Pledge Accreditation. A badge of honour that validates our commitment to a better, fairer, and more inclusive workplace.

The Good Work Pledge, which you can learn more about on their website, is a visionary initiative that challenges businesses to create an environment where good work thrives. It underscores the importance of promoting fair pay, wellbeing, voice and representation, job security, productivity and skills, work-life balance, and fair treatment for all employees.

So, why is our recent Good Work Pledge Accreditation such a significant milestone for FIRST? Here are some compelling reasons:
