The Chartered Insitute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), an association of human resource professionals, have published a new guidance on how businesses can promote trans and non-binary inclusion in the workplace.
The guide provides professionals, employers, and people managers with the information needed to take an informed and proactive approach to supporting transgender and non-binary people at work, as part of a broader diversity, equity and inclusion policy.
The guide covers the key areas of the entire lifecycle of an employee from recruitment through to progression, as well as suggestions to build a more inclusive workplace culture.
The guide also suggests how HR teams and business leaders can support employees who are transitioning. They highlight long waiting times for gender-affirming care and the bullying, harassment and hostility, which is most likely to occur at the point of transition but can happen at any time.
