National Day for Staff Networks 2024

Today we are celebrating National Day for Staff Networks. We launched our networks at the start of 2022 and are proud of how they continue to evolve and play an important part in driving Explore forwards.

What is a staff network?

Staff networks are a place for Explore employees to discuss their views, experiences, share ideas and initiatives and make social connections at work. Insights from each group are used to help shape Explore’s future and improve Diversity and Inclusion at all levels.

The networks are based around social identities of our employees, so each business will have different networks, depending on the make-up of the organisation. We now have six employee networks At Explore Learning and expect more to emerge over time:

  • Mental Health

  • LGBTQ+

  • Neurodiversity & ability

  • Ethnic diversity

  • Parents and carers

  • Faith

Why we have staff networks

Who is part of the networks?

All our networks are open to all staff across Explore who share these experiences or characteristics – this includes tutors, salaried managers, and our central team. Therefore, it’s a great way to build connections with others within the business. Each network has its own coordinator who is responsible for setting up group meetings and events, as well as feeding back any suggestions the group have made to the Diversity and Inclusion working group.

What our staff have to say about networks

Why our staff networks are important to us

Our networks are important to us because they make sure our staff keep sharing their experiences and continue having conversations about what is working well and what needs improving. We are committed to listen, learn, and make active change for our members and employees, with the aim of making Explore a welcoming, inclusive environment for everyone.
