A specialist partner,

on your D&I Plans

According to research by McKinsey, the relationship between diversity on executive teams and the likelihood of financial outperformance has strengthened over time. In South Africa, HR plans are governed by Employment Equity Law and it is becoming legally imperative for companies to comply, with policies and staffing that represents inclusivity. 

We understand that diversity is about representation – the make-up of an organisation. 

Whereas, inclusion is about how well the contributions, presence, and perspectives of different groups of people are valued and integrated into an environment. Diversity ensures that your organisation is representative of the population base of your company whilst, inclusive cultures make people feel valued and proud of their culture- enhancing their participation and contribution at work.  

A specialist agency, like Talent Trace can provide strategic insight to your D&I Plans: 

  • We can objectively evaluate your executive team assessing the degree to which they portray diversity and inclusion (from gender, to ethnic, to cultural to racial diversity)
  • Our team can help you design survey’s and research to assess whether your company culture is an inclusive one (i.e. where every voice is welcome, heard, and respected)?
  • Help you identify existing employee’s which can be groomed for senior and executive management positions, enabling your organisation to retain top talent 
  • Foster diverse thinking by sharing insight into how other companies have approached D&I Plans
  • Using strategies to eliminate bias in the hiring process 
  • Rewriting job descriptions so they are gender-neutral and using words that strike a balance of gendered descriptors and verbs
  • Creating a blind system of reviewing resumes so you don’t see “demographic characteristics”. This allows the hiring process to be based on merit rather than demographics 
  • Set diversity goals as an organisation, which will help you track your progress in your hiring and HR plans
