At Morson, we are committed to improving the diversity of our company and 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.

As a key part of our 2021 diversity and inclusion strategy, we're thrilled to announce that Morson, has once again joined leading companies from a range of sectors and industries in signing the Inclusive Culture Pledge for a further year in 2021, an initiative managed by diversity consultancy The EW Group. 

Diversity and inclusion in the workplace are 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 again have the support of the EW Group, a specialist in diversity and inclusion. Throughout the year, our colleagues will benefit from a year of dedicated support on five key aspects of diversity development: Leadership, People, Brand, Data and Future.  Together this will provide a focus for building our skills, awareness, confidence and maturity around workplace diversity over the course of 2021. In doing so, we are making a commitment, internally and outwardly, to the lasting importance of diversity and inclusion to our company culture. 

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 colleagues, customers and stakeholders.
