Media and Communications regulator selects the Clear Company to support four-year inclusion programme

Ofcom, the UK’s communications regulator that monitors the UK’s £55bn market, has confirmed the signing of a four-year contract, to run for two years initially, to secure the Inclusive Talent Management services of the Clear Company.

Focussed initially on the recruitment capabilities at Ofcom, the first stage of the process is for the Clear Company to review existing recruitment policies and processes to ensure future development is targeted to have the biggest impact.

The major part of the contract is training provision for hiring managers, equipping them with the knowledge and understanding of recruitment best practice and the skills to conduct an effective recruitment campaign.

As the Clear Company has done with other leading employers, the proposed approach to building confidence and competence around inclusive hiring at Ofcom will be a blended process featuring face-to-face workshops and a brand new Digital Learning Platform from the Clear Company.

Described as the ‘premium end of E-Learning’, the new Digital Learning Platform brings all of the latest innovation in remote learning to optimise outcomes. Gaming theory, just in time access, bite-sized learning and fully accredited programmes are all included in the offering made to Ofcom.

Commenting, Kate Headley, Development Director at the Clear Company said:

“This was a challenging competitive tendering process and we are delighted to have been selected by Ofcom as the winning tenderer.

“I really admire the approach Ofcom is taking. As the Regulator of such a large and diverse industry, it’s really important that Ofcom set the standards and lead the way for the whole communications market to follow.

“Ofcom’s reach and leadership will hopefully have a really positive impact; there are many large employers in this market like BT, Virgin Media, Sky, O2 and the BBC, as well as the UK’s postal services and internet service providers.

“We are increasingly seeing organisations leading markets, such as Lloyd’s of London in the insurance sector and HS2 in the infrastructure industry, by setting out clear expectations on inclusion for themselves. These two organisations are supporting sweeping change to happen in real life across many employers. I hope to see Ofcom doing the same in the not too distant future.”

The Clear Company provides strategic guidance for large employers to enable inclusive talent management.
