Ricoh signs up to ‘Opening Doors’ initiative

Ricoh UK has signed up to ‘Opening Doors’ campaign launched by Business in the Community (BITC), the membership organisation dedicated to responsible business. This latest initiative aims to create a movement of businesses committed to becoming more inclusive recruiters, opening doors to those who face barriers to work, and tapping into more diverse talent pools.

Ricoh has pledged to take action on the following asks identified by BITC in consultation with businesses and charities representing the needs of a wide spectrum of disadvantaged groups: to create partnerships that connect people from disadvantaged groups to our jobs; inclusion commitment; and to prioritise accessibility and eliminate bias.

Ricoh - which has a longstanding relationship with BITC and works with The Prince’s Trust to support underprivileged groups - has also signed up to the Ban the Box campaign, Living Wage Foundation, Social Mobility Pledge, Disability Confident Committed, Mental Health at Work Commitment, and the Armed Forces Covenant, all of which have specific pledge actions that form part of Ricoh’s diversity and inclusion strategy. The company is also committed to BITC’s Race at Work Charter, seven calls to action for organisations committed to improving equality of opportunity in the workplace. 

Meanwhile, Ricoh has confirmed that it will showcase Pro L5160e large-format printer on Josero’s stand at SDUK next month.

Incorporating three staggered Ricoh printheads, the L5160e can achieve print speeds of 46.7m2/hr on outdoor high speed four colour mode and 25m2/hr on indoor standard four colour mode. The machine on Josero’s stand will be running in the double CMYK mode to showcase the machine’s productivity capability.
