The changing nature of the candidate marketplace, and the requirements placed on us by being part of the Government supply chain, have led us to roll out an ED&I awareness campaign that serves two purposes.
We must ensure that all staff are aware of their own ED&I responsibilities as colleagues and as suppliers to our customers.
We must attract from an increasingly diverse candidate pool, and therefore as recruiters we must be sensitive to ensuring all our opportunities are attractive to the widest possible candidates sets.
Through regular training and education we improve the experience for our customers, candidates and colleagues alike.
In 2022 we have undertaken a series of eight individual ED&I awareness sessions, focussing on a diverse range of topics from allyship and micro aggressions, to tackling unconscious bias and becoming an inclusive recruiter.
We have also partnered with two customers to share their ED&I journey and learn how we can become a better talent partner to them.
