Embrace Diversity: Have you recognised the benefits of diversifying your workforce?
Thursday, 25 July 2013
15:00 - 17:00
7 Bedford Row, London WC1R 4BS
On the 25th July The Work Foundation, along with Kick It Out,
football's equality and inclusion campaign, and 7 Bedford Row - one of the
country’s leading barristers' chambers - hosted a seminar on the
business benefits of workforce diversity.
Evidence suggests that organisations operating the
best practice HR policies around diversity tend to perform better against
operational measures of business performance. Leading employers are recognising
there are real benefits to seeking to achieve a mix of people that reflects the
diverse world around them.
This event provided an opportunity to hear the views
of experts working across football, business and law, all coming together to
share their experiences and to discuss how workforce diversity presents a
genuine business opportunity.
