Our Inclusive Culture Pledge demonstrates your commitment to developing an inclusive culture and allows you to benefit from EW’s extensive diversity and inclusion expertise.
Here are some of the organisations signed up to this year’s Pledge:
We pledge to strengthen our equalities data collection, analysis and presentation with investment in a new bespoke platform. This will enable us to better monitor our progress for clients and candidates as we continue to drive diverse candidate lists and appointments. We will continue to build on our team’s DEI development training and will undertake an AQ diversity survey to understand where we need to deepen the diversity of the AQ team, always ensuring we preserve and cultivate our inclusive culture.
In 2022 at URW we want to continue to build on our culture of diversity and inclusion. We strive to maintain our inclusive environment so that people can be the best version of themselves, and talented employees love to work here. We want to listen and learn from our people, and our D&I network, the Be You Network will continue to be a key driver for us in hearing everyone’s views and continuing to turn the dial on inclusivity. We will ask questions, try new ways of working and keep momentum on our People & Culture roadmap so that we can continue to “Reinvent Being Together”. Our purpose as a business is to provide spaces where people feel welcome and appreciated, and this applies to our employees as well. Our URW community must be as diverse and representative as the millions of customers that visit our centres daily, and live or work in assets within our portfolio. As part of the URW community, all employees should feel valued and fully supported, thriving in an inclusive working environment that celebrates diversity and creates a sense of belonging. A key factor here among our business and working principles is reaffirming our zero tolerance for bullying, sexual harassment, racism and any form of discrimination. Our Teamwork company value description has been updated to “we unite diverse talent to succeed” and in 2022 this will be our focus.
Our mission is to humanise healthcare. The Point of Care Foundation is committed to supporting the creation of an environment where all people have access to our work. We aim to ensure our services are available to all and welcoming of everyone, regardless of any protected characteristic. We will adapt our work to ensure representation from a range of backgrounds, roles and experiences through specific actions to address injustice and inequality, practical support, recruitment, evaluation and measuring the change and impact of our work to ensure equal access and representation. We believe this is not only the right thing to do, but also an issue of moral and equal justice which inspires us towards a cultural change and our mission of humanising healthcare.
Mears Group are committed to building a diverse and inclusive culture that reflects the communities in which we work; one that attracts and retains the best talent and enables our colleagues to thrive – it’s about the bigger picture, creating cultural fitness that goes beyond the protected characteristics.

- Designing and implementing a strategic approach to fairness and inclusion, ensuring our systems are developed to support this

- Deliver practical diversity and inclusion training to our frontline colleagues across the Group
- Develop a framework of tools to aid Line Managers & colleagues and encourage more open and safe conversations
- Develop a culture that promotes inclusiveness, setting clear accountability and competence for all posts at all levels
- Ensure that we understand the negative impact of unconscious bias, particularly colleagues with the authority to recruit, promote and manage others.
We are beginning an overhaul of our recruitment strategies to better promote equal opportunities; we are launching an Inclusive Cifas Working Group compromised of employees across the business including managers and leadership members which will be focused on defining our approach to Inclusion at Work.

We will achieve this while ensuring ED&I recruitment best practice when supporting our clients’ hiring needs.
We will continue to strive to shape and nurture a culture where everyone is valued; where inclusiveness is a reflex, not an initiative and where EDI underpins our values and everything we do. With passion and understanding, we will unfold the complexities of the EDI agenda, raising awareness across the workforce, creating a safe space for open dialogue and enabling everybody to play their part.
At eQS we understand the importance of diversity, equity and inclusion, it is at the core of everything we do.

As we look to further grow and diversify our business in terms of scale of projects, UK locations and sectors, we will continue to place people at the heart of the business. Therefore, this year we pledge to benchmark our employee compensation, benefits and inclusive practices against best in industry. We will translate best practices into policies and procedures to underpin activities across the entire organisation and to improve data collection at all stages of the employee journey, from advertising for recruitment onwards. We will increase our apprentice intake and offer more early career placements for underrepresented groups in partnership with our collaborators (clients, supply chain, join venture partners). In terms of our culture, we will continue to ensure we are a fair and inclusive organisation throughout by establishing employee networks and elevating the voices and experiences of underrepresented groups.
At The Smalls, we are committed to putting Equality, Diversity and Inclusion at the heart of everything we do. In 2021, we will focus on three key areas: 1. Our internal team. Ensuring our core team reflects the diversity of the UK. We will also implement on-going ED&I training for all members of staff. 2. Our creative community. We commit to uncovering and championing the true diversity of our creative community, and to diversifying our shortlisted talent pools. 3. Our clients. We will encourage our clients to come with us on this journey, and we will support them in measuring their own progress in ED&I. Above all, we will hold ourselves accountable for actioning change, and we will publicly advocate the importance of this move towards a more diverse and inclusive culture.

We work together, collaboratively, with equal participation and inclusion to do the best for our colleagues and customers.
Supporting and encouraging our leaders to carve out an inclusive culture, working with individuals from different background with different perspectives on life. We will seek to educate our employees that diversity is a fact, inclusion is a choice and for us to have an inclusive culture, we must embrace diversity.
