The best practice from the UK’s most inclusive employers

Our recent ‘Diversity in the Public Sector – What has changed since the death of George Floyd’ event was so insightful! We were proud to co-host the event alongside the wonderful team at Inclusive Companies and hear from some truly inspiring industry leaders.

Our Head of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion – Attraction & Communication, Alexis Curtis-Harris sat down with Caroline Frankum, Global Chief Executive Office, Profiles Division at Kantar, and Wayne Brown, Deputy Chief Fire Officer, to talk about how they are addressing equality, inclusion and diversity in their workplaces.

‘It can be great to bring diverse talent into the business, but you must support them to succeed once they’re in,’ said Caroline. ‘We’re talking about breaking down barriers and structural discrimination that’s been inherent in our sector for years. It takes people in our position to make a difference.’

Our approach to diversity and inclusion is built to ensure best practice and innovation is developed and delivered throughout any candidate attraction and engagement process. This is rooted in rigorous data analysis and ongoing qualitative research to increase the volume and quality of underrepresented applications and subsequently hires. 

We support, guide and challenge clients to embed diversity and inclusion into their campaigns, and most importantly into the heart of their organisations. At Penna we embody the diversity you seek, and have a team of award-winning experts - our Diversity Consultancy. Through this team of experts, we go further than just looking at attraction campaigns, but consider the whole candidate journey and experience, through to hire, as well as once they join. Alongside them, our creative, communication and digital specialists are also experts in creation of attraction and engagement strategies which help organisations reach underrepresented audiences.
