Equality, Diversity & Inclusion (EDI) research – Recruiting & Retaining a Diverse workforce

by | 0 comments

The LSIP team has now completed the project which has built on the sector deep dives undertaken as part of the LSIP development. This project has a particular focus of improving Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) knowledge and understanding in businesses to improve workforce skills and practices to recruit and retain staff. The aim was to delve deeper into the realms of Equalities, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) within the local business community to research and report on examples of good practice in local businesses. The LSIP team believe that fostering a diverse and inclusive environment is not just morally right but also commercially astute. It’s about shaping a future that values everyone’s contribution and provides equal opportunities for growth and success. The resulting report for Sussex businesses, job seekers and our strategic partners provides:

  • A shared resource of useful tools and information to assist businesses in enhancing their EDI approaches.
  • Access to valuable local and national EDI data to inform business strategies and thinking.
  • Information on the support organisations and initiatives across the Sussex area available to businesses to support them engage and retain a diverse workforce.
