Deliver measurable returns on your organisation’s investment in Microsoft 365

Build internal communities of trust that provides support to each other

An equality impact assessment (EqIA) helps your organisation ensure Microsoft 365 policies, practices and decisions are fair, meet the needs of staff and don’t inadvertently discriminate any protected group.

Although Microsoft 365 works seamlessly with Windows 10, giving staff access to tools and capabilities that meet multiple needs, it is still possible to create disadvantage for people who fall into the protected characteristic groups.

Silversands helps you understand how Microsoft 365 meets the needs of staff with protected characteristics:
