Why are Virtual Diamond Good Business Charter Accredited?


Good Business Charter and Virtual Diamond

At Virtual Diamond, we believe that you shouldn't chase profit at the sake of your employees wellbeing and lives. There is a fine balance to be struck between work and personal life and we want to make sure that everyone who works for us and with us are able to enjoy their lives alongside their work.


Building a working environment that fosters fair pay, wellbeing and environmental responsibility is just a part of how we ensure that as a business we're not just saying words but taking actions to make this a reality.


What is the Good Business Charter?

GBC was founded by retailer Julian Richer – to reflect that people do care about shopping with responsible businesses – but they often don’t know who is behaving responsibly … and who is not!


Which is why the GBC was launched – to solve that problem. To be a clear signpost to those organisations that are walking the walk, not just talking the talk. Who are doing the specific, practical things that show they are caring about people and planet.


  1. Real Living Wage: We ensure that all our employees receive fair wages.

  2. Fairer Hours and Contacts: Our work hours and contracts are designed to promote fairness and work/life balance.

  3. Employee Wellbeing: We prioritise our teams wellbeing, ensuring the importance of maintaining a healthy work/life balance.

  4. Employee Representation: We encourage employee participation and provide a platform for their voice to be heard with our clients, as well as on social media platforms.
