Client Testimonial

“The Clear Company took a very collaborative approach that focused on ways to improve the inclusiveness of our recruitment process going forward without providing judgement on past processes.

Auditing Diversity in the Workplace:
What to expect

Looking Beyond the Obvious

The qualified team at the Clear Company are on hand to work closely with you through the audit process. As leaders in their field, such as specialist culture or DEI practitioners, or organisational behavioural psychologists, they’ll be able to offer constructive challenges to the thinking and processes of a business and identify key areas to improve.

Example questions used to assess diversity in the workplace include:

  • How do colleagues really feel?
  • Why do people join, stay or leave?
  • Why aren’t colleagues disclosing personal data?

Call today to set this process in action.

The Improvement Approach

Using a data-focused method, Clear Audit produces a Diversity Dashboard that provides inclusion indicators for all aspects of the employee lifecycle. This is designed to aid understanding of how to create an inclusive and diverse culture in the workplace, by clearly singling out the exact opportunities for improvement.
  • We use anonymous evidence-based questionnaires to measure the culture of inclusion and gather robust diversity monitoring data.
  • Then, businesses can view perceptions of inclusion and engagement by metrics such as country, business unit, and demographic group.
  • The Diversity Dashboard is a great tool for deeper analysis to help guide actions and set progress in motion.
If this data would be useful to you, speak to someone on the team for more Clear Audit information. Or, check out our blog about the importance of diversity and inclusion data.

The Discovery Approach

Our rigorously tested approach covers all aspects of inclusion, branching out from the broadest to the most specific areas. Moving through our thorough research process ensures that stakeholders at every level of the business have the opportunity to share their views, and influence their workplace culture surrounding diversity, equity, and inclusion. Discovering this information is essential to the success of the DEI journey, and this blog goes into more detail on the subject.

  • Qualitative research – detailed analysis of policy and process documentation for all or part of the employee life cycle from attraction through to retirement.
  • Quantitative research – thought-provoking stakeholder interviews, surveys and focus groups to assess capability and appetite for change.
  • Further combined analysis tests hypotheses and puts the findings into context with help from the team’s expert insight.

Taking Action

The result of our thorough inclusion and diversity audit process is the creation of innovative, achievable action plans. We aim to help companies implement long-term cultural change within their teams based on our comprehensive deep dive into quantitative data and qualitative insights.

Some examples of measures implemented following an audit include:

  •        Inclusive leadership training to help senior leaders take accountability by improving their knowledge, skills and confidence levels around diversity and inclusion
  •       Strategy and governance frameworks that set the DEI vision and anchor the DEI strategy within the overall business strategy
  •       Company-wide education and training that empowers all employees, departments and networks to take responsibility for DEI
  •        Practical solutions and toolkits to aid you in your ongoing diversity journey
