DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION | 2 MIN READ
Morson are proud to announce that we have joined leading companies from a range of sectors and industries in signing the Inclusive Culture Pledge in 2020, an initiative managed by diversity consultancy The EW Group.
Diversity and inclusion in the workplace is becoming increasingly important for both employers and employees. 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 is an important factor when considering job offers.
By signing up to the Pledge, we will have the support of the EW Group, a specialist in diversity and inclusion. Throughout the year, our staff will receive specialist support in leadership, people, brand, data and future.
Joining the Pledge is a public commitment that we take diversity and inclusion seriously and that we understand the need to provide our 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 build 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.
“Signing the Inclusive Culture Pledge for another year furthers our goal to deliver internal cultural change to combat negative, harmful gender stereotypes. With the support of organisations like the EW Group, over the last few years we have been able to achieve a shift in our organisational practice, culture and viewpoint and have been able to make headway in transforming our own talent pipeline and that of our clients. Our diversity strategy has sponsorship from executive board level and volunteer ambassadors from across the business have regular strategy meetings, as well as engaging with key stakeholders from our clients’ organisations.
In 2020 we will be continuing our inclusivity journey to educate our workforce, support our clients and most importantly, inspire the next generation by sharing stories of success” – Sam Price, head of client engagement and Morson ED&I lead
