Congratulations! By formalising your corporate commitment to diversity and inclusion, you’ve made the first crucial step to attracting and retaining more diverse talent, reaching more customers and strengthening your company’s reputation using inclusive business practices.

What’s next?

Now that you’ve pledged as an inclusive business, the next step is to help individuals know your company better by building your inclusion profile in our Inclusive Business Registry. This requires you to complete our accessibility data modules:

  1. Amenities for Blind or visually-impaired people

  2. Amenities for Deaf or hard-of-hearing people

  3. Amenities for Walking Aid Users

  4. Amenities for Wheelchair Users

  5. Child Friendly Amenities

  6. Amenities for Transgender people

  7. Workplace Inclusivity

Each module has been built with extensive participation from diverse grassroots groups. We’ve put a lot of work into making these modules business-friendly and easy to use.

Please deliver your company’s accessibility information with the above forms within 30 days of initiating your registration. Depending on how many modules you complete, you will get a differently-coloured Inclusive Business Badge. Here are the different levels of recognition:

Gold Inclusive Business Badge

Gold Inclusive Business Badge

  • Gold Status = At least six (6) modules

  • Silver Status = At least three (3) modules

  • Bronze Status = At least one (1) module

  • Blue Status = 0 modules

Your entity’s Inclusive Business Badge will be automatically listed on your Profile Page on the Inclusive Business Registry. The artwork will be made downloadable for your own usage.

All Inclusive Business Badges are valid till 31 December 2019 only. Your status is valid for 12 months and subject to renewal. Any changes to accessibility at your place of business must be shared upon renewal, and we can help you update your profile at any time.

Why is this important?

Communication is the cornerstone of inclusion. Sharing information covered in all seven of our accessibility data modules is essential to helping diverse consumers and jobseekers determine if your facilities can meet their needs. 

In addition, you receive the following benefits:

  • A custom-built profile page in our inclusive business registry that reaches over 100,000 diverse jobseekers and consumers in Singapore.

  • A digital 'Inclusive Business' badge for display on your company website.

  • A complimentary Inclusive Business in Asia newsletter that equips business leaders with resources on diversity and inclusion tailored for the Asian business environment delivered to your inbox.

You can also unlock the following paid features:

  • On-call strategic advisory for managers needing content, access to subject-matter experts and overall tactical support to implement inclusive practices in your workplace.

  • Our Inclusive Employers Showcase that enables companies to tell their inclusive business journey in Asia-Pacific with videos and other content alongside employment opportunities.

  • Training that helps managers raise employee awareness and educate teams on diversity, inclusion, managing unconscious bias, managing professional boundaries and more.

Worried that your place of business is not very accessible?

It would be awesome if the entire world is perfect in terms of accessibility. In reality, no place is perfect. Your honesty about the accessibility at your place of business will help thousands of people in our network be better prepared when they visit you. So, don’t be afraid to check “not applicable” in some of the sections.
