About Rainbow Tick

The Rainbow Tick programme allows businesses and organisations to understand what they are doing well in relation to their Rainbow employees, as well as what they need to improve and how to do this.  Through the help of the Rainbow Tick, a manager can derive the best from an employee by being a good employer – and this benefits everyone. 

To earn the Rainbow Tick, organisations must show their policies specifically mention the lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and intersex communities.  They must have procedures in place to handle cases of harassment, adequate staff support and show they engage with the community outside of the workplace – for example, sponsorship of an LGBT charity or event.

The Rainbow Tick is a confidence mark that is awarded once an organisation has demonstrated compliance with all five areas of evaluation.  The Continuous Quality Improvement aspect of this programme means that annual evaluations are required to maintain certification.
