Project Elevate: How You Can Support Diverse Talent
To support diverse, overlooked talent in the workplace across the UK, we have launched Project Elevate. First of all marking our move into the diversity and inclusion market, Project Elevate aims to help you as employers reach diverse talent pools through our engaging employee platform, connectr. Because those who are from low-income backgrounds, ethnic minorities, or those who have access needs are often overlooked in the workplace, we have built connectr 2.0 to ensure you’re not missing these valuable candidates.
As part of the launch event at The Globe, we were delighted to be joined by guest speaker CJ Bedford, Associate Director in the People Advisory team at Grant Thornton. Building on our shared insights into overlooked talent, CJ shared her experience with engaging diverse pools of people and best practices with her talk ‘How D&I is influencing the talent agenda’. Furthermore, she shared her tips on how to drive actionable change in the workplace after these conversations.
Following on from this, we launched the latest version of our award-winning digital platform, connectr. Technology bridges the gap between talent pools and employers, and with connectr you can attract, engage, upskill, support and mentor diverse talent.
How can connectr and Project Elevate help you?
Through supporting the diversity and inclusion talent and enabling you to access this range of candidates, you’ll also be able to:
