Flora’s HR Diary
Hi, thanks for coming and checking out the blog! I’m hoping you liked my poem about the Diversity at work conference.
At Funky Town we’re trying to improve our diversity by measuring our diversity of ethnicities, genders and ages when we do our annual engagement survey and then doing the following:
- making sure we employ the best people and not discriminating on any of the factors in the Human Rights Act
- developing our female branch managers capabilities so that they can move into Regional Management roles (historically held by men)
- looking at our customer base and making sure we have branch staff that match our customer base
- providing flexible working for employees with parenting or study responsibilities
So what I’d love to know is what else are companies doing out there to promote and grow diversity, not just the factors above but also diverse work and thinking?
Please post your suggestions and examples below.
The best answer will be published in the next HR Magazine and win a voucher to a course!
Let’s learn from each other. Isn’t that what diversity is all about?
