Keeping our diversity score high

Summer saw the launch of the revamped, award-winning Enterprise diversity scorecard, which has now been shared with all the groups directly and through discussions during a series of regional visits by UK HR Director, Leigh Lafever-Ayer.

This is a vital tool for managers across the country to use to benchmark and improve diversity in every branch, location, city and region. It’s packed with metrics, analysis
tools, fresh ideas and best practice information.
