In 2011 in the UK the government gave us the right to take positive action to redress the balance of our workforce where we believe we are not representative of the population around us.
For that reason, if you are a tech team with no women, or a London based team with predominantly white employees, you will be itching to make a change. Whatever your diversity aims, we want to help you make a difference.
We can talk you through setting targets, if you aren't already working to them, and we can provide diverse slates of candidates for professional hires. Of course, we will always be happy to hire the students and the apprentices too - but we know - that you know - that that is the easy bit!
We can also talk you through staff retention for diversity to ensure that you keep those hard-won candidates when there is a danger that they will become a 'regretted loss'.
There is a huge amount of research and data to support the fact that well managed diverse organisations and teams are more successful, more innovative and more profitable than homogenous ones. Even if you don't read the findings it would seem logical that the more life experiences, ideas, perspectives you have in a group then the richer the environment, the work and the results.
So how can you embrace this and, more practically speaking, how can you attract talent from previously untapped pools?
We can analyse your current recruitment strategies, train your interviewers, improve your processes and find you potential candidates if you'd like us to.
