We vigorously promote a culture of diversity within Michael Page, demonstrating attitudes and characteristics that fairly reflect the society we live in. Due consideration is given to the recruitment, promotion, training and working environment of all our staff, including those with disabilities. We do this not because it's good for business, not because it's the law but because it's the decent and right thing to do.
Our Public Sector clients know that we share their commitment to diversity and that, consequently, any decision we make on a candidate’s eligibility is non-discriminatory. Making judgements based on a candidate's individual merits is at the heart of our policy and we’ve introduced more competency based procedures to guarantee objectivity.
We advertise in a wide range of representative media, both online and in print. In addition, our Global Opportunities team is tasked specifically with sourcing candidates eligible to work in the UK from all over the world, monitoring and analysing numbers to guarantee diversity. Our dedication does not end there:
- We helped to set up the Inter-Recruitment Diversity Forum
- We’re Proud supporters of the Race for Opportunity
- We work with ‘Business In The Community’
- We’re a member of the ‘Employer Forum on Age’,
- We set up an Age Discrimination Working Party to review our policies
Our sponsorship of appropriate events also means we get our message to the heart of key groups and communities. We participate in a number of external initiatives that champion the youth of our nation, including Global Graduates and The Brokerage, a charity whose aim is to increase the ambition and employability of young people in the 11 London Boroughs.
We believe that diversity is a constantly evolving priority. There is always more that can be done to enhance our own workforce and, indeed, to assist our clients in doing the same. We want to offer something over and above just monitoring and considering applications from a range of candidates. We want to provide clients with a tailored solution that addresses the gaps in their workforce. But we can only achieve this with your input so, please, having read this article, feel free to get in touch to discuss your requirements in more detail.
