Government to become the UK’s most inclusive employer by 2020 - What does that mean within your organisation?
The Government has set itself a target to become the most inclusive employer in the UK by 2020.
There is now a requirement for all government agencies to have their own inclusion and diversity strategy in place. Furthermore, ALL public sector websites and mobile apps have a legal duty to meet with accessibility requirements (deadline September 23rd 2019 for newer websites)
Speaking at a recent event, Chief Executive of the Civil Service John Manzoni argued that in order to attract and retain a diverse pool of external talent, diversity and inclusion must become embedded into the very fabric of the Civil Service’s organisational culture.
The most recent data on state of diversity in the Civil Service provides a mixed picture. The talent pool is becoming more diverse, with the percentage of women in the civil service rising steadily since 2010, and currently at 53.3 per cent. However, whilst representation of ethnic minorities and civil servants with disabilities has also improved, these groups only make up 12.8 per cent and 13.1 per cent of the service respectively.
Based on our recent work with a major central government department and experience gained across the public sector, PDT Global have produced a short guide & accompanying case study detailing ‘how to create an inclusive workplace’
