CBI-People and Skills Network (London) on Diversity and Inclusion

Description

Looking to get at the forefront of inclusive business strategies? Join the discussion on how great people practices can maximise your business’ performance.

Great businesses depend on hiring, developing and leading great people from all backgrounds. It’s the right thing to do. But the UK’s ageing society, changing skills needs, changing customer profile and reduced immigration also makes progress towards fairer and more inclusive workplaces a commercial imperative. When just one in four businesses are confident that they can access the high-skills their business needs in the future, drawing on the widest talent pool and enabling everyone to be themselves at work is necessary to harness the opportunities from the future of work.

It’s proven that diverse and inclusive workplaces see higher individual performance, as staff are more engaged and better able to innovate and are more likely to outperform their rivals because of better collective decision-making. While many UK firms are leading the way on fairness and inclusion, there is still a tail of underperformance in the wider business community.

By attending this roundtable members will:

  • Participate in an expert led discussion on D&I strategies in the HR landscape
  • Share ideas and take away best practice on how organisations might become more inclusive
  • Build their professional network by engaging with senior industry peers

Who should attend?

This is a CBI member only network for senior professionals in roles such as:

  • Chief of People
  • Head of HR / Talent
  • Director of People / Talent / HR
  • Diversity and Inclusion Lead / Director

This is a great opportunity for senior HR executives to network, share best practice on how to become more diverse and inclusive and discuss challenges ahead of 2020.
