The Good Work Standard has been designed for all organisations regardless of their size and sector. A large number of London’s leading institutions – London boroughs, universities, sports clubs, museums and galleries – have signed up to the Good Work Standard, and officers in my Economic Fairness team engage with businesses across all sectors of London’s economy.

We are also working closely with SMEs who make up 45 per cent of accredited organisations to date. Using our free to access resources, we are helping organisations across London to meet the benchmark in areas such as fair pay, flexible working and diversity and recruitment.
