Morson Group has joined leading companies from a range of sectors and industries in signing the Inclusive Culture Pledge in 2023, an initiative managed by diversity consultancy EW Group for a 4th consecutive year.
At Morson, we are committed to building inclusive cultures every day. Not only is this good for business, but it’s also the right thing to do. We aim to be a truly 21st-century workforce, where everyone’s talents are welcomed, valued and nurtured.
Jane and Annie wanted to bring an inclusive approach to leadership and organisational development. Sharing how the best businesses show real intent to notice, adapt to and embrace difference at work. They believed that organisations would only excel when they fully engaged with diversity in all its forms.
Why make this pledge?
Research has shown that diverse businesses are 35% more likely to financially outperform their industry’s national average. For potential job hunters, 67% now consider a diverse workforce an important factor when considering job offers.
By signing up for the Pledge, we will have exclusive access to DEI experts and thought leaders.
Joining the pledge is a public commitment that we take diversity and inclusion seriously and that we understand the need to provide employees with a safe, fair and supportive place to work.
We’re looking forward to the events provided as part of the Pledge, which will further enhance our internal capacity and ensure we work at the cutting edge of diversity and inclusion. This is an initiative that we believe will benefit our staff, customers and stakeholders.
Sam Price, Morson ED&I lead explains
Signing the Inclusive Culture Pledge for another year empowers our mission to deliver industry-wide cultural change to diversify the talent landscape and ensure that recruitment, retention and growth are placing inclusion first. We’re committed to transforming the talent landscape by encouraging our clients and ourselves to look at every step of the candidate and colleague experience through the lens of equality, diversity and inclusivity. At Morson, recruitment is more than filling roles. It’s transforming businesses, fuelling industry and innovation, creating fulfilling careers, encouraging the next generation, and opening the world of work for all. In 2023, we’ll expand our calendar of engagement via our colleague and diversity board focusing on age, race, LGBTQ+, religion and disability inclusion.
If you want to encourage more diversity within your organisation, we can help. Our ED&I consultancy services help clients attract diverse talent to their organisation, improve or create inclusive cultures and identify barriers to inclusion in the recruitment process.
