Diversity, equity and inclusion
Authentic diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) recruitment practices start from within.
We are on a journey of constant learning and education to ensure we improve our practices for a better, more progressive future.
Explore Diversity, equity and inclusion
Our DEI strategy is focused on internal training, policy and experience. We believe that by improving our own DEI practices, we can better serve the needs of everyone we work with.
By educating ourselves, understanding privilege and unconscious bias and appreciating different life experiences, we can understand the people we work with beyond their profiles.
As a recruitment company, we are aware of the vital role we can play in creating a more diverse, inclusive and progressive future. The actions we take can have a big impact on the outcomes for professionals and businesses alike.
We run events and initiatives celebrating causes including International Women’s Day and Neurodiversity Week
We are members of the Mindful Business Charter to promote better mental health and wellbeing in the workplace
We work with companies like Resurgo in the UK to support social mobility through employment
Putting DEI at the forefront of our business
DEI now sits at the heart of everything we do in our business.
From our internal training and hiring strategies, to all of our processes and practices, we are now engaged in a journey of constant learning.
As a result, DEI underpins everything we do both internally and for our candidates and clients.
We are becoming a more diverse and inclusive business – but our journey has only just begun.
The actions we take
To ensure we are always moving forwards with our DEI practices and consistently offering the right advice to our clients, we are engaged in a number of activities and partnerships:
We provide mandatory DEI global training to all employees, aiming to empower our employees with a deeper understanding of the factors that influence their decision-making
We have signed up to the Mindful Business Charter, a framework to promote better mental health and wellbeing in the workplace
We offer inclusive volunteering for our employees to connect them with social hardships in local areas – and partner with the likes of Benefacto to do this across the business
We partner with companies like Resurgo and Project Search to support social mobility through employment
We have historically run DEI initiatives and events celebrating International Women’s Day, PRIDE, Neurodiversity Week and more, attended by global audiences
Dedicated to diversity
We have revamped our internal hiring strategy by recognising that ‘company fit’ has a habit of attracting recruiters who look for very similar candidates. We are committed to increasing diversity through tactics focusing on competence and potential, rather than backgrounds
We have a dedicated DEI committee that meets monthly to ensure we are meeting various pledges and to report to the board on DEI progress
More to come
These partnerships and initiatives are significant in their own right, but they are just the beginning.
We are actively looking for ways to drive our DEI strategy and learnings forward and will be building more partnerships in the near future.
We are committed to DEI – so this is a process that will never stop.
