Diversity & Inclusion Consultancy

Creating equitable, inclusive and diverse workplaces

We work with forward-thinking and progressive organisations to design, develop and deliver effective diversity and inclusion strategies that drive lasting and sustainable change.

What’s involved?

Fostering a sense of belonging through an inclusive company culture is the key to employee wellbeing and engagement, attracting and retaining top talent, and gaining competitive advantage. At Tell Jane, we can support your workplace in developing and implementing successful D&I strategies through understanding the employee experience, setting objectives and embedding change.

Understanding the cultural landscape

Tell Jane supports organisations to build a clear and true picture of their existing D&I landscape. From this insight, together we are able to determine the employee experience and identify areas for growth, opportunity and improvement.

Our experienced D&I practitioners are highly skilled in conducting organisation-wide assessments through employee surveys, focus group sessions and 1-2-1s, as well as analysis of quantitative data such as pay and performance indicators, applicant tracking systems and employee satisfaction surveys.

Findings are then used to establish objectives, review policies and procedures, develop bespoke training programmes and as a baseline from which to monitor D&I activities.

Setting D&I objectives and developing strategies

Setting a D&I strategy with objectives that are aspirational yet realistic demonstrates an organisation’s commitment to change. We support businesses to establish objectives that overcome challenges and mitigate biases in order to become truly inclusive.

As a result of our extensive experience in the contemporary D&I space, we provide actionable recommendations in our development of D&I strategies to achieve objectives and embed sustainable change. We are also committed to identifying benchmarks and to monitoring the effectiveness of action plans to ensure the success of D&I strategies.

Designing and delivering D&I programmes

From mitigating barriers to employee engagement, ensuring equal opportunities to pay and progression or increasing diversity at senior level, we design and deliver D&I change programmes tailored to your organisation, your people and your D&I objectives.

We approach D&I programmes based on the three stages of change – awareness, vision setting and embedding change:

Awareness

Increasing awareness of D&I pillar subjects through training and development of a D&I language toolkit.

Vision setting

Ensuring collective accountability for cultivating and protecting the company culture through creating behavioural codes, feedback models and leadership coaching.

Embedding change

Equipping teams to continue to uphold and evolve the company culture through upskilling in-house HR teams, reviewing policies and developing inclusive recruitment practices.

Why is diversity and inclusion important?

Diverse workplaces are more creative, innovative and profitable. But, recruiting more diverse candidates or introducing coaching programmes for employees from underrepresented groups is only the first step in bringing about change.

Organisations need to be fair, inclusive and foster belonging in order to retain and nuture a diverse workforce. When employees feel they are valued for their individual contributions, treated fairly and respected for being their authentic selves, they engage, contribute and perform at the very best of their abilities; the impact of which is enhanced creativity, idea sharing, problem solving, performance and company loyalty.

Diverse businesses also have greater awareness of and are more agile in tailoring their offering to the challenges, needs and expectations of their customers. Plus, they are able to design and deliver equitable and inclusive services thereby increasing their competitive advantage.
