The pandemic has thrown up new challenges
For HR leaders starting out on a journey to transform the diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) within their organisations, the prospect can often feel daunting.

Research shows diversity is a crucial ingredient for highly innovative, profitable businesses. After all, how can an organisation serve its customers if their employees fail to represent the society in which they’re operating? But despite this now widely accepted link between diversity and profit, some businesses still fail to prioritise investment in both diversity and inclusion.
