Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Audits and Research
Research & Audits
Just how effective are your existing diversity policies, programmes and campaigns? What knowledge, attitudes and behaviours are really prevalent in your workforce or customer base? Do your recruitment, retention and inclusion activities meet the needs of present and prospective minority staff groups?
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Research
We offer detailed research projects that can shed light on these and many other questions. Our research is inclusive and participatory, so that the voices of those often ignored in practice, policy and research can be heard and listened to. We’ll provide you with the research you need to make positive, evidence-based decisions and develop better-targeted policies, programmes, campaigns and policies. Our researchers are highly skilled and have immense expertise, gained through working on research projects for many public and private sector organisations. Our Diversity Insight tool is specially designed to give you an insight into how you are perceived as an employer externally, and how your own employees feel about working for you.
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Audits
An Audit or a Culture Survey is the only way to gain a complete picture of diversity good practice in your organisation. As it gives you a benchmark of where you are at this current moment in time. The process itself communicates to employees that your organisation is truly interested in their job satisfaction. And in creating an inclusive culture as well as giving you a baseline to monitor, measure and evaluate. Culture Surveys will emphasise the differences in perception between different levels of employees. Managers are often amazed to find that their employees feel uninvolved in decision-making, and cynical about the fairness of promotion decisions.

Positive Action – External Engagement and Attraction
We’re proud to have conducted extensive research throughout the UK for both public and private sector organisations to ascertain how people from the different diversity strands would prefer to be communicated with for recruitment purposes.
Our detailed research has indicated that individuals from minority backgrounds utilised the services of community organisations frequently, not only for general advice and information but also to find out about employment opportunities. It is therefore possible for organisations to recruit a more diverse workforce and to help grow the employer brand through working in partnership with relevant community organisations.
Thanks to our excellent relations with organisations such as the religious establishments, minority organisations, associations and societies, we have developed a database of minority organisations that we work with to run engagement and attraction events
Projects that have involved a great deal of community engagement include;
- Recruitment events for executive members and boards
- Minority Ethnic Group recruitment events
- Consultations exercises and research
We believe it is vital for each and every organisation to have a community or service user, or customer buy-in, to achieve diversity objectives. We have the experience and expertise to support and enable you to achieve this.
