Many UK sectors now face short, medium and long-term skills shortages. To succeed, employers must recruit talent from every possible source. Diversity is a necessity, not a choice. But that’s not the only reason. To achieve high performance, employers need to have a mixture of backgrounds, cultures, approaches and thinking. What’s more, new and upcoming diversity legislation is often accompanied by rising litigiousness among employees and jobseekers.
For all these reasons, there is an increasing need for employers to manage diversity effectively. Eden Brown helps clients to devise both policy and practice in this crucial area. We also provide a wide range of diversity training for both managers and staff.
For over 20 years, Eden Brown has campaigned for and promoted best practice in recruiting and employing diverse workforces. Our Chairman chairs the recruitment industry’s Diversity Forum and has been instrumental in bringing about the REC and Job Centre Plus Diversity Charter.
