Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) in the workplace was a hot topic in 2016. From the ongoing debate on the gender pay gap to research projects such as Deloitte’s High-Impact Talent Management reaching a wider audience: the topic remains firmly in the public eye. Having good intentions when it comes to equality within your organisation is one thing, but dedicating time and resources to implementing a D&I programme and understanding how best to measure it, is another.
Looking to 2017 and beyond, businesses need to get to grips with diversity and inclusion: whether that’s reviewing current D&I policy, defining and implementing a new strategy or hiring an equality and diversity officer in their organisation. It is this need that inspired PageGroup to take a closer look at diversity in the workplace, specifically within small- and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) in order to find out more about challenges and opportunities it poses.
Perhaps the most surprising insight revealed in our research, was that 100% of organisations have D&I challenges.
