Equality and Diversity

This course is designed to help you create, manage and develop a diverse workforce. This brings the benefits of  recruiting from the widest possible talent pool and minimises the risk of legal action for discrimination

Encouraging equality and diversity, and preventing discrimination in the workplace are a legal obligation. They are also ethically and commercially good practice for both large and small organisations. Business reasons for an organisation to encourage equality and diversity in its workforce are mounting:

  • the make-up of the UK workforce is under-going considerable change. For example, more people are continuing to work instead of retiring, women now make up around half the workforce, around one in ten of the UK working age population are from an ethnic minority, while, looking to the future, one in four primary school children are from an ethnic minority
  • help serve a diverse range of customers – economies including China, Brazil and India are among the world’s top ten, and offer a major market for British goods
  • enhanced innovation – having staff at all levels from a wide range of backgrounds and skills can help to develop a working environment producing ideas and solutions that might not emanate from a smaller array of diverse groups
  • improved problem solving – the more complex a task or problem in an organisation, then the greater the potential benefit of having a team made up of people from a wide range of backgrounds and skills. For example, staff of different genders or racial or religious backgrounds can bring distinctive perspectives to the table which may contribute to a commercial breakthrough.

This course will cover:

  1. Why you should care about equality and diversity
  2. The nine protected characteristics
  3. Types of discrimination
