What is the most effective way to increase diversity and inclusion in the workplace?

November 27, 2020

The case ‘for’ being a diverse and inclusive employer is irrefutable. There is a plethora of research dating back over the last 10 years or more that shows how businesses who provide the same opportunities for each individual, regardless of their identity or background, are more attractive as an employer and enjoy higher staff retention rates, which in turn boosts productivity and positively impacts the bottom line. Business is simply better when it is diverse and inclusive. 

But while the sales pitch is easy to buy into, actually developing it in practice continues to be a challenge for a great many employers. Here we will take a look at some of the most effective ways that this can be accomplished. 

What do millennials and Gen Z want in an employer?

November 13, 2020

Millennials (b.1981-1996). The very utterance of the word has been known to prompt eye rolling among many baby boomers (b. 1946-1965) and Generation Xers (b.1966-1980). As for Generation Zers (b.1997-2012), well, this could be one demographic that’s even less understood than their Millennial forebearers despite the fact that a significant number of them may have been in the workforce for the last seven years.

However, as an employer, understanding who you have within your teams is critical both in terms of forging effective working relationships from a top down, bottom up and linear perspective but also in the way organisations seek to position themselves as an employer of choice.

The importance of ‘connectivity’ with employees in the virtual office

October 30, 2020

Being a manager, an employer, is not an easy job. No matter how experienced one may be, this is a role that will constantly challenge and surprise you in equal measure. This has never been truer than right now. With many organisations today being a hybrid of virtual and physical workplaces, the pressure is on employers to ensure their teams remain connected.

How has COVID-19 changed the way candidates look for jobs?

October 16, 2020

To say that the coronavirus has impacted our everyday lives, would perhaps be the greatest understatement of all time. With the economy in a state of flux, and demand for talent across every sector rising and falling seemingly on a daily basis, it is a strange and frustrating time for job seekers. So, how has the pandemic shaped changed the way in which people are searching for jobs?
