These days, most organisations understand why they should support diversity and inclusion, and they have a coherent agenda that works towards this. However, this doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t take our own personal responsibility for making our workplaces more inclusive. After all, our individual behaviours, attitudes and mindsets have an impact on the lives of others and help shape both our...

  We’re all human. We have different hopes and dreams, and different fears and flaws. We’re all unique in our own unique way. It’s our uniqueness that makes each one of us 7.8 billion human beings on this planet, human. But what is it that sets us apart from all the other species? For a race as complex as ours, this is a difficult question to answer,...

  Given that post-Brexit we might finally have a reprieve after years of uncertainty, it is interesting to look at what job trends we can expect to see and the 2020 employment trends. Many of the employers we speak to are struggling to find the people they need, so it is particularly important to look at what’s happening across employment and reflect on...

  We often become good friends with the people that work both with and for us – even our bosses. But, while that may be a great thing for improving your happiness at work, and even making us feel more fulfilled, could these friendships be inadvertently acting as a barrier to career progress?  But what if you were to be offered a job elsewhere? ...

  In preparation for your interview, you might think that the most important thing to equip yourself with is what you’re going to say when answering specific types of interview questions. However, something that many candidates don’t consider is how they approach answering the question. Therefore, if you have an upcoming interview or you are thinking...

    I recently read that 67% of 6-9-year olds say that saving the planet will be the ‘central mission of their careers’ in the future. That stat struck me as fascinating, but not all together surprising. I think we’d all agree, that for all of us, regardless of our age, the reasons behind the career choices we make are becoming more...

  Business leaders are increasingly understanding and expecting to see the value and benefits that a diverse workforce and inclusive workplace culture can bring their organisation. However, it isn’t always easy to measure and track the progress made in this area and, crucially, the sought after positive impact that this progress returns to the...

  By the end of this decade there will be five generations working side-by-side in many of our nation’s workplaces as later retirement ages and longer life expectancy start to make their presence felt in the world of work. As with all aspects of diversity, an age-diverse workforce presents organisations with the opportunity to better understand customer...

  The guidance of a good mentor can significantly help within the development of your career. They’ll share their experience and knowledge, open new opportunities, offer career advice and help you get ahead professionally. However, considering all of this, it’s normal for recipients to think that it’s the mentor’s duty of ensuring the relationship works....

    As the old adage goes, “New Year, New Career”. The January blues may be an all too relatable prospect for many – money worries after Christmas overspending and dread at the thought of returning to busy public transport commutes – and you may be worrying about the direction your career is heading in, or whether it’s even the right direction....
