It’s Pride month – which means it’s time to celebrate, hang up the rainbow flags and coat everything in glitter, right? Partly. While Pride is, of course, a time for the LGBTQ+ community and allies to rejoice in their relationships and celebrate how far we’ve come, it remains a time to raise awareness and increase education around certain topics. One such important point of discussion is...

What are the traditional definitions of leadership? Or, rather, what are the skills and characteristics associated with successful leaders? Of course, these may vary depending on the role, but many people would discuss a leader’s ability to be decisive, dictate strategy and motivate those around them. Regardless of which is deemed to be most important, one thing we can be certain of is that...

Are you considering a new job? If so, what are you hoping a new role with a different employer will offer you? A more attractive salary and benefits package? Improved career progression? Challenging and exciting work? Better work-life balance? These are all obvious and reasonable criteria of course – but have you considered the importance of working for an employer who places significant...

If you’ve found yourself in the position of being made redundant, don’t be afraid of communicating it clearly on your CV and in a job interview. When addressing your redundancy on your CV, include any relevant and appropriate background information, such as the department or organisation needing to downsize, and ensure you highlight your key achievements in the role. ...

June is Pride month! Hays is a proud supporter of Pride and has been for many years. But, although this is a period to celebrate in LGBTQ+ inclusion and the relationships of friends, family and colleagues, it’s also important to look at the challenges the community battles day to day. We wanted to take this opportunity to have a closer look at specific struggles that people in the LGBTQ+...

Neurodiversity, meaning “individual differences in brain functioning regarded as normal variations within the human population”, is an umbrella term for individuals who live with neurological disorders such as autism, ADHD and dyslexia. How these conditions present is different for every individual, and not every person is affected by them in the same way. Until the early 2000s, individuals...

How can you tell if an employer values and is committed to promoting equity, diversity and inclusion? Do you believe you’ll be joining a workplace that has a welcoming and open environment? Is it clear that (as well as supporting ED&I campaigns such as Black History Month and International Women’s Day) the organisation is taking noticeable action? Recent research from our Hays Equity,...

Have you recently, out of the blue, when you weren’t even looking, stumbled across an excellent job opportunity that has really sparked your interest? One that actually got your blood pumping and made you question “Am I really that fulfilled in my current job?” The more you read the job description, the more it ticked all of your boxes. So you saved the job spec. You updated your...

Many organisations have made good progress in improving the diversity of their workforce in recent years. But could understanding and embracing intersectionality help them improve the experience of all employees? Diversity is not a linear issue. As companies seek to be representative of the communities they operate in and that make up their workforce, many still consider their diversity...

This month marks International Women’s Day – a day to celebrate women’s achievements, raise awareness against bias and take action for equality. Whilst it’s really important we celebrate International Women’s Day this year, especially after celebrations were limited under lockdown in 2021, what’s key to acknowledge is that breaking the bias is about much more than one day of activity.
