How will EFB help you?

Employers have a huge responsibility to manage religion and belief in the workplace and face significant reputational risk and costs if they get it wrong.

Organisations that care about the well being of their workforce and freedom to reflect the diversity of cultures and religions in a fully inclusive working environment will benefit from membership of the EFB as part of their Equality and Diversity Strategy.

The EFB is a growing employer network, not affiliated to any religious groups and independent of Government. We have been established by leading employers to share best practice on religion and belief as part of their commitment to diversity and Corporate Social Responsibility. We help our members to solve real-life dilemmas which may include advice on how to resolve conflict, but also provides a unique source of best practice to ensure workplace harmony and bring business benefits.

An inclusive workplace means that employers not only comply with the law but understand the changes they could make to enable workers of any faith or belief to contribute fully to the workplace. We help to achieve this by bringing together employers, experts and lawyers to talk about the many and complex issues they face and the solutions they have developed.

Members of the EFB have access to our expertise developed by aiding employers with many different questions on subjects as diverse as: religious festivals, monitoring, conflict with other equality issues, communication, customer preference, food and drink, multi-faith groups, education and training and quiet space/prayer rooms to mention a few. This helps employers with staff recruitment, retention and satisfaction as well as avoiding costly tribunals and disputes.
