Diversity and inclusion in the workplace are becoming increasingly important for both employers and employees. Research has shown that diverse businesses are 35% more likely to financially outperform their industry’s national average. For potential job hunters, 67% now consider a diverse workforce is an important factor when considering job offers.
By signing up to the Pledge, we will have the support of the EW Group, a specialist in diversity and inclusion. Throughout the year, our staff will receive specialist support in the following areas: Gender Pay Gap, Inclusive Leadership, Inclusive Recruitment, Cultural Intelligence, Measuring Success and Accessible Communications.
Joining the Pledge is a public commitment that we take diversity and inclusion seriously and that we understand the need to provide our employees with a safe, fair and supportive place to work. We’re looking forward to the events provided as part of the Pledge, which will build our internal capacity and ensure we work at the cutting edge of diversity and inclusion. This is an initiative that we believe will benefit our staff, customers and stakeholders.
