Creating a Diverse, Inclusive and Belonging Work Environment (Part 2)
Share this event
Mention the words ‘Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging’, and a lot of people go running to take cover! Indeed, this is a complex, sensitive, and emotional topic, and that is why too many people tend to avoid it. So, isn’t it better to discuss this important subject based on ‘curiosity’, rather than on ‘uncertainty’ or being ‘judgmental’?
Most businesses largely accept that diversity matters to their organisation. There is ample evidence to demonstrate that it makes a positive difference to their results, such as a wider candidate pool, greater market share, and an increase in profitability. It also feels like the ‘ethical’ thing to do. Indeed, there is a plethora of research to show the positive effects this has on employees, customers, clients, and shareholders.
Simon Rickman is one of the CICM’s regular contributors. As a seasoned HR Professional and coach, he has put together a webinar to learn more about Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging (DI&B) in a constructive way. He admits that he is not a DI&B ‘expert’ and is on his own journey to be more tolerant, open minded and knowledgeable. This webinar is therefore, for those people who are ‘curious’ to learn. Simon shares a range of insights, thoughts, and recommendations following his own ‘journey’ and research and by talking to DI&B experts.
During the pandemic, Simon has used the framework of ‘The 7 Habits’ by Stephen Covey to discuss a range of topics relevant for today’s working environment. In this series he focuses on how to:
- Emphasise the importance of starting the DI&B conversation and sponsoring it as part of an organisation’s DNA
- Move the dialogue away from policy, structures, rules, and regulations and towards celebrating and valuing ‘difference’, as we are all individuals and bring unique things to the table
- Create an environment for employees to feel comfortable to share their views and be curious
The result (in the words of Paul Wolfe, SVP Global HR at Indeed) is, “to create a workplace where rich and incredible diversity is celebrated, and all employees can be their true, authentic selves”. Simon believes that this is one of the key skills required to reshape our working attitudes for 2021 and beyond.
Simon RickmanPEAK Performance & Potential Ltd
Simon is an HR and recruitment professional who has spent his career helping businesses to become more profitable by turning managers in to leaders, employees into self-believers and teams in to winners.
This is his passion, and why he created PEAK Performance & Potential. Over the last 35 years we has implemented his thoughts, ideas and principles with many teams in a range of UK based SMEs and international businesses, including Accenture, American Express, Pinsent Masons and TMP International.
As a people development specialist, he has been asked the same questions by people leaders in each organisation: How do we create the leaders of the future? How do we ensure that our employees are motivated, positive and deliver results? How do we get a return on investment from our talent agenda? These types of questions are the same, regardless of industry or function. The PEAK development and coaching programme aims to answer these types of questions. This is achieved by delivering proven practical solutions based on tried and tested business philosophies.
Consisting of a series of highly interactive, fun, self-awareness workshops, the PEAK programme is designed to refresh leaders on best practice, re-engage employees, and remind new joiners why they joined the company in the first place. Having attend the programme (group workshops, confidential 121s, group refresher), employees feel more engaged, individuals become more productive, and businesses have more satisfied clients and customers. It’s a real win-win!

No matter how strong your technical defences are, if you do not train your staff then they will always end up as the weakest link. I have always been a strong advocate for engaging with teams to keep them informed of risks and to also obtain feedback on what they are experiencing on the ground.
