Diversity Mark award Kairos with Bronze accreditation
We are delighted to share that we have achieved our Bronze Award from Diversity Mark. An organization committed to empowering organizations who are navigating the Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) landscape in the workplace.
This accreditation will see Kairos take the relevant steps in transforming workplace culture and attitudes for the benefit of all employees, future employees, stakeholders and clients of our platform. Through committing to building a more diverse and inclusive workspace, Kairos seeks to attract and retain a deeper pool of talent that will in turn help our team to thrive all while contributing to the local economy.
A special thanks to Nuala and Emma of the Diversity Mark team who helped guide and direct us over the course of our application process as a company totally new to this environment. They commented, “Diversity Mark are delighted that Kairos have been awarded the Bronze Diversity Mark Accreditation. The independent assessment panel noted Kairos’s understanding of the key role diversity and inclusion can play in their business and it was refreshing to see such commitment so early on. Congratulations to the whole team on this robust achievement.”
Having achieved this accreditation, our next task is to work on the actions from our application which will see us evaluate our current internal structures in the hope of evolving Kairos as an inclusive, diverse and equal employer not only in Northern Irish but across our growing global workforce.
Kairos COO, Gareth Quinn on the achievement, “We’re delighted to receive our Bronze Diversity Mark accreditation. We wanted to commit to this journey early as a company so as to help shape and define our culture, enabling us to compete at our best globally. We work with elite sports teams across the world and our customers represent a rich diversity across staff and athletes and it is important that the Kairos team has diversity throughout the team so as to be able to continue to evolve what has become the world’s leading communication and operations platform for elite sports teams.
Through creating a safe, supportive and inclusive workplace environment for our current employees, we can pursue a Diversity & Inclusion strategy that aligns with our local and global goals, helping to consolidate our position as a distinctive and meaningful place to work.”
Newcastle United to use Kairos
The upcoming 2022-23 season brings a new opportunity for Kairos to evolve all aspects of Newcastle United’s elite communications & management system as they prepare for another season competing in the top flight of English football.
Kairos will be welcomed as the official supplier of the club’s organizational & management needs, covering all aspects of staff & player administration as well as the smooth sharing and communication of schedules, events, facilities and any other relevant information necessary to the successful day-to-day running of the club.
Dan Hodges, Head of Performance:
“The Kairos platform will allow all staff and players at Newcastle United to stay connected and communicate effectively in an easy manner, which will help with planning on a number of areas such as travel and training schedules, general updates and events.
Kairos have a proven track record of working with a number of clubs and the mobile app is a welcomed addition to streamlining our communications at all levels from academy personnel, throughout to first team players.”
What can Newcastle’s Premier League staff & players gain from Kairos in these circumstances?
Through consistent use of Kairos’ new dashboard feature to share all key information with first team players and academy parents alike, stakeholders will have access to the right information, at the right place and time. With real time updates from your mobile – teams will have more time for other elements critical to their overall performance.
Indeed, cultural excellence is a frequently used term in the elite sporting environment but through the clarity, accountability and excellence achieved from daily use of the Kairos platform, we know the team culture will grow resultantly. We believe there’s a few components that will allow teams to stay present this upcoming season. Staff can request deadlines for certain events, documents or surveys, meaning the everyday, granular activities are guaranteed to be complete.
Hear from Conor Branson, Sales Director at Kairos on the announcement, “’We’re delighted to be working with Newcastle United. It’s a really exciting time for the club and we’re looking forward to playing a part in that journey with both the first team and the academy.”
We wish Newcastle United the best of luck in the upcoming season, and cannot wait to see how the side benefits from using the Kairos platform!
