It allows the ambitious to aim for Platinum status, whilst ensuring compliance and reputational risk are managed at the base level. Those who achieve each stringent level should be proud of themselves and confident that they are becoming a leader in diversity and inclusion.
Clear Company Consultant, Jen Davidson commented “Reaching Bronze status shows successful change, not only to policy and process but a more fundamental cultural shift too. This is particularly impactful in a recruitment organisation such as PageGroup with its ability to instigate change through the provision of a truly diverse talent pool able to support client strategies and success.”
As an early adopter of Clear Assured, PageGroup is demonstrating a long-term approach to inclusion and a willingness to challenge current thinking and behaviours not only within their organisation but in supporting clients and suppliers too. PageGroup has put inclusion at the core of the organisation, being prepared to evolve, listen to different perspectives, seek out a variety of opinions and allow individuals to challenge the status quo.
Sheri Hughes, UK Diversity and Inclusion Director at PageGroup said “Diversity and Inclusion can’t just be an item on a to-do list. It needs to be understood and wholeheartedly embraced. As a global recruitment business, inclusive recruitment is so much more than just being the responsibility of the recruiter. It’s not just about how we challenge our clients and candidates but more crucially how we work in partnership with them so that they can truly affect change.”
