Our Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) commitment

Fostering a culture of belonging

Our mission at UKAS is to ‘build a world of trust and confidence’ and we believe this extends to our people, as well as the customers we serve.

Our commitment is to foster a culture of belonging; a place where our people feel seen, heard, valued, and accepted. We are determined to achieve a stronger sense of belonging aligned to our values of Professionalism, Respect, Integrity, Dedication and Excellence (PRIDE).


Our aim is to ensure people feel welcomed and integrated into the organisation from the outset.


Our goal is to create a space for our people to feel understood, a place where we can learn about
one another and share experiences that create a dialogue of understanding and acceptance.


It’s important that individuals feel respected and accepted without reservation. Through our
Purpose, Mission, Vision and Values , we strive to create an environment where there is collective
appreciation of how our people contribute to the success of the organisation.


We value the diversity everyone brings to the organisation and want our people to feel nurtured and
developed. We empower managers to provide the support needed to develop their team members,
ensuring everyone has access to all resources available to succeed in their role.


We strive to break down silos and encourage cross-functional interaction to enhance personal
and professional relationships, so everyone’s voice is heard, and people feel connected at all levels.
