For candidates looking to progress in their current workplace or find a new role elsewhere, an organisation’s commitment to these pillars will affect their experiences and opportunities. Today we welcome Sheree Atcheson, an award-winning leader in Equity, Diversity &...

Equity, Diversity and Inclusion, or ED&I, is an increasingly vital consideration for any organisation. And when strategies are successfully implemented, these contribute to continued, and sometimes, transformational growth and success.

In 2020 we faced more significant challenges than many of us could have imagined and, while 2021 gave us an opportunity to adjust and reflect, what we know now is that the changes brought about will not be reversed. While it’s an uncomfortable admission to have to make, many of us, as business leaders, haven’t always known the answers to the questions posed to us along the way. That’s ok....

June may be the month associated most with LGBTQ+ issues, rights and – of course – Pride itself, but did you know that February also holds great significance for the community?

So, we’ve put together some tips to help you manage the January blues and give you that spark of motivation to take the...

During my career I’ve seen many candidates struggle with a common interview question when they shouldn’t. It’s a line of conversation that provides them with a great opportunity to impress the person leading the interview.
