Helping our clients with diversity

 
PageGroup are truly dedicated to diversity and inclusion; our OpenPage diversity and inclusion programme includes the philosophy: “Age is just a number; Disability doesn’t hold you back; Sexual orientation doesn’t matter; Families and carers come first; A multicultural workforce thrives; and Women succeed at work”.  We recognise that clients are increasingly looking to consultancies to contribute to their diversity plans, and we are committed to helping our clients achieve this. Therefore it is essential that we can demonstrate our absolute understanding of the fundamental importance of a diverse workforce and show how we can add value to our clients’ diversity agenda.
 
We can place client advertisements through our agreed contracts and rates with a diverse range of on and off-line media, such as Asian News, The Ethnic Jobsite, Eastern Eye, The Voice, Remploy, Disability Jobsite, Disabled GO, Disability Now, Stonewall, The Circa Club, Pink Paper, Maturity Works, Prime 50 Plus, Working Mums and Women in Technology.
 
We hold corporate memberships with the organisations we partner with: Race for Opportunity, Opportunity Now, the Clear Company disability benchmark Clear Assured, Business Disability Forum, the Employers' Network for Equality and Inclusion, the Recruitment and Employment Confederation Diversity Pledge and Stonewall. We have collaborated with these organisations to identify how we can improve the diversity of our workforce internally as a business, and externally in our services we provide as a recruitment agency. 
 
Having this mix allows us to obtain information and advice, whilst simultaneously carrying out key networking activities, and promoting our services and brand.
 
We are a member of the Recruitment Industry Engagement Initiative whose members also include a number of prominent commercial, financial and legal firms, and government departments.
 

Diversity and Inclusion Guide for Businesses – Professional and Business Services Council

 
As well as helping attract new talent and improving employee engagement, embracing diversity and inclusion (D&I) in the workplace has proven to have commercial benefits through better alignment with clients, a broader customer base, increased productivity and improved services and products.
 
In collaboration with the Professional and Business Services Council (PBSC) members, we have developed a guide to help companies take steps to improve D&I in their workplaces.
 
The PBSC is a forum for partnership between the government and industry within the professional and business services sector. The Council is currently co-chaired by Sir Michael Snyder, Senior Partner of Kingston Smith LLP and Baroness Neville-Rolfe, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Intellectual Property at the Department for Business Innovation and Skills (BIS).
 
The guide provides key areas of focus for implementing, managing and monitoring D&I initiatives including tips, best practice examples and a handy checklist.
