It’s Pride month – which means it’s time to celebrate, hang up the rainbow flags and coat everything in glitter, right? Partly. While Pride is, of course, a time for the LGBTQ+ community and allies to rejoice in their relationships and celebrate how far we’ve come, it remains a time to raise awareness and increase education around certain topics. One such important point of discussion is...

Are you considering a new job? If so, what are you hoping a new role with a different employer will offer you? A more attractive salary and benefits package? Improved career progression? Challenging and exciting work? Better work-life balance? These are all obvious and reasonable criteria of course – but have you considered the importance of working for an employer who places significant...

June is Pride month! Hays is a proud supporter of Pride and has been for many years, and we’re excited to mark the 50th anniversary of the first Pride march in London. But although this is a period to celebrate in LGBTQ+ inclusion and the relationships of friends, family and colleagues, it’s also important to look at the challenges the community battles day to day. We wanted to take this...

Neurodiversity, meaning “individual differences in brain functioning regarded as normal variations within the human population”, is an umbrella term for individuals who live with neurological disorders such as autism, ADHD and dyslexia. How these conditions present is different for every individual, and not every person is affected by them in the same way. Until the early 2000s, individuals...

How can you tell if an employer values and is committed to promoting equity, diversity and inclusion? Do you believe you’ll be joining a workplace that has a welcoming and open environment? Is it clear that (as well as supporting ED&I campaigns such as Black History Month and International Women’s Day) the organisation is taking noticeable action? Recent research from our Hays Equity,...

Many organisations have made good progress in improving the diversity of their workforce in recent years. But could understanding and embracing intersectionality help them improve the experience of all employees? Diversity is not a linear issue. As companies seek to be representative of the communities they operate in and that make up their workforce, many still consider their diversity...

This month marks International Women’s Day – a day to celebrate women’s achievements, raise awareness against bias and take action for equality. Whilst it’s really important we celebrate International Women’s Day this year, especially after celebrations were limited under lockdown in 2021, what’s key to acknowledge is that breaking the bias is about much more than one day of activity. In...

Equity, Diversity & Inclusion in the world of work is vital if all employees are to realise their full potential. For candidates looking to progress in their current workplace or find a new role elsewhere, an organisation’s commitment to these pillars will affect their experiences and opportunities. Today we welcome Sheree Atcheson, an award-winning leader in Equity, Diversity &...

Equity, Diversity and Inclusion, or ED&I, is an increasingly vital consideration for any organisation. And when strategies are successfully implemented, these contribute to continued, and sometimes, transformational growth and success. However, many leaders struggle to prioritise and practically navigate the steps they can take to turn talk into meaningful action. Today, I’m delighted to...

June may be the month associated most with LGBTQ+ issues, rights and – of course – Pride itself, but did you know that February also holds great significance for the community? It marks the history of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer individuals, the growth of human rights, the abolishment of archaic legislation that prevented the “promotion of sexuality” and promotes equity,...

Even though employers have increasingly understood the benefits of equity, diversity, and inclusion (ED&I), the continued progression of their commitments and the importance of turning talk to meaningful action, requires ongoing attention from employers and employees alike. This is often evidenced by the widespread support for ED&I campaigns, including Black History Month,...

A global event known as Purple Light Up sees hundreds of iconic landmarks and monuments worldwide illuminated with purple light to coincide with the UN International Day of Persons with Disabilities. This day, held on 3rd December, promotes the rights and wellbeing of the 386 million employees that live with a disability or long-term health condition. This year’s theme was ‘Fighting for...

In a typical year, Pride is an opportunity for millions to get together in cities across the UK and Ireland to show their support and solidarity with the LGBTQ+ community. Whilst ongoing restrictions are making it difficult for us to celebrate in the way we normally would, it’s still a time for us to acknowledge the progress we’ve made towards achieving equality for LGBTQ+ people, and all...

The socioeconomic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic has been felt deeply across every societal group, but there is evidence to suggest that women – in particular – have been disproportionately affected. According to the World Economic Forum’s Global Gender Gap Report, although women make up 39% of the global workforce, they’ve accounted for 54% of the job losses as a result of the pandemic. ...

This month not only marks International Women’s Day, but it is also a year since the Covid-19 pandemic necessitated the UK’s first nationwide lockdown. Marking these two anniversaries so close together should make us reflect on how the pandemic has disproportionately impacted women. We recently conducted a poll on LinkedIn, in which respondents were asked how the Covid-19 crisis had impacted...
