Whether your organisation is at the beginning of its Equality Diversity & Inclusion (EDI) journey or you're ready to take your EDI commitment to the next level, we're here to help. We believe that embedding culture change, starts with taking an honest look at ourselves and our organisation through the lens of EDI.
Globally society is becoming increasingly diverse and organisations across all sectors need to make a conscious effort to enable individuals and communities from different backgrounds to thrive together. It means creating the conditions for people to get used to each other, understand each other, appreciate shared values and build their confidence in being together.
Our EDI Assessments use a combined approach of reviewing policies and practices with gaining an understanding how your employees, customers, visitors and stakeholders experience your commitment to EDI.
Read on to find out more about our 'EDI Assessment' or contact us to arrange an informal chat.
In order to identify current good practice and highlight where additional focus is required, we will start with a desktop based EDI Assessment. We will review an agreed selection of policies, practices, procedures and plans. We will then use interviews, focus groups and surveys to understand what it's like to work for your organisation as well as the customer or visitor experience.
Working as your constructive critical friend, we will identify opportunities for improvement by spotlighting what you already do well so that it can be replicated and help you to prioritise quick wins and longer-term changes to any culture change programme.
We are committed to providing you with the ongoing support and information required to embed culture change and so we offer two follow-up reviews to check that you are on track.
And finally, we think we offer great value for money as we use our passion for people to help you to embed EDI good practice across your organisation.
The review will be delivered in line with existing legislation and current good practice in supporting your workforce, customers and visitors and that provides the opportunity for you to understand potential barriers to good practice in creating sustainable intersectional EDI. Below are example of policies or procedures we are likely to review:
