In recognition of our commitment to our candidates and clients, FPSG has become a member of the Employers Network for Equality & Inclusion (ENEI). Membership allows us to promote best practice in equality and inclusion in the workplace through employer guides, policy briefings, case studies and further tools to support the needs of our candidate and client partners. It also offers an opportunity for our people to grow knowledge outside their normal job role by taking part in webinars and networking events.
What are our plans?
Throughout the year, FPSG will be hosting a programme of events to mark specific notable dates including International Women’s Day, Workers’ Memorial Day, Volunteers’ Week, International Youth Day, National Work Life Week and World Mental Health Day. These events will range from fundraisers and collections to coaching workshops and candidate and client surveys.
We have started off by marking International Women’s Day with a Suit Drive for Smart Works in Edinburgh. Since August 2014, Smart Works Edinburgh has helped more than 600 women feel more confident and ready for interviews by providing work outfits, styling and interview advice. We also attended Scotland Women in Technology (SWiT) and Everywoman UK‘s collaborative event celebrating International Women’s Day 2019. These have been hugely successful and we look forward to our future events.
We shall also be monitoring our own Diversity & Inclusion journey.
This membership complements our recent commitment to the Real Living Wage, to support the needs of everyone we work with by providing fair employment.
Our Director of Operations, Kirsty Peacock, said:
“We are thrilled to be making this commitment to our people, candidates and client partners. Together, we will work to raise awareness and promote the needs of everyone we work with through our membership of ENEI”.
