Insights into Diversity and Inclusion

29 January 2019
UK legislation sets minimum standards which cover age, disability, race, gender, sexual orientation – among others, but an effective and efficient diversity & inclusion strategy goes beyond compliance and adds real commercial value to an organisation. 

Given its growing importance to organisations, we were eager to find out more about the UK’s attitude and approach to diversity and inclusion in the workplace, and so commissioned an in-depth analysis of 2,000 UK employees across the private and public sectors, split by age, gender and disability. Our findings suggest that while the upcoming generation of workers is more finely attuned to the importance of fair and equal representation, there is still a long way to go to truly unlock the level of talent in the UK. This becomes particularly pertinent when we see that 54% of British workers believe their employers could be doing much more to truly embrace a culture of diversity and inclusion.
