The Clear Company, recognised leaders in the provision of inclusive talent management services, celebrates 15 years of removing barriers to inclusion through partnerships with some of the largest employers in the UK.  Clients such as Lloyd’s of London, Skanska and Investigo have taken significant steps on their inclusion journey, becoming leaders in their sectors around hiring and ongoing talent management. 

As employers increasingly recognise and value the essential contribution made by diverse workforces the demand for the Clear Company’s deeper insight and independent thinking has accelerated. 

“In the current candidate driven market, factors such as commitment to employee inclusion and wellbeing carry as much weight as salary in a candidate’s final decision.  Employers that genuinely celebrate the differences in their workforce will attract and retain the strongest talent.” Gareth Headley, Director.

The additions to the team will broaden the range of experience and depth of knowledge, providing a solid base for further growth. 

Jenny Hinde joins the team as a Clear Company Director.  Formerly Group HR Director at Amey she has extensive experience of pan diversity within construction and engineering.   In addition, her successful track record around gender balance, BAME, disability, LGBTA, mental health and community initiatives will be particularly relevant to the challenges faced by many organisations. 

Jenny will be supporting clients with a range of inclusion projects and needs, as well as taking a lead on the learning business. 

Jen Davidson has been promoted to Managing Consultant, reflecting her increasing client responsibilities and close involvement in the development of Clear Assured - the business’ intelligent HR software platform.  Jen also takes responsibility for the Clear Company’s graduate intern programme. 

Addam Radha successfully completed his summer internship at the Clear Company and now joins on a full-time basis as Trainee Consultant.  Addam finished his degree in Occupational Psychology at Sheffield University in 2018 and will be using his expertise to develop training and resources in this growing area.

Nicola Halliday joins as Head of Marketing and Communications and will be developing the marketing strategy to support the business growth plans in new and existing sectors. 

Kate Headley, Director of Consulting commented,

“The ability of our team to bring insight and focus to inclusion through research and audit programmes and to provide our clients with a detailed accurate reflection of their business is central to the Clear Company ethos.  We focus on what’s important to each client and deliver innovative recommendations, enabling them to implement practical, achievable actions within defined timeframes.”

“In this way each client is able to clearly see their progress towards inclusion, the impact of the changes they’ve made and the associated return on investment.”
