The announcement today that millions of employees will be able to request flexible working from day one of their employment may ease some of the skills shortages, but more clarity is needed around the impact on agency workers.
In recent years, we have observed a long-overdue mindset shift in many companies regarding diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI).
If you are not weaving DEI into the fabric of your business, you are putting your company at a disadvantage. In addition to the values imperative, if you struggle to attract and develop talent from diverse backgrounds, those vast talent pools will become increasingly difficult for you to access down the line.
Imagine working in an environment where you struggle to read the signage or where the sound feels deafening or where the lighting seems fine for everyone except you. Then consider that this is what it’s like everyday for many employees who are neurodiverse and work in an office.
