“Parliamentary Digital Service (PDS) engaged Equal Approach to conduct an inclusive recruitment audit in order to interrogate our recruitment processes, with a focus on increased inclusivity and identifying barriers for diverse talent.
Equal Approach undertook a range of activities in order to thoroughly assess our processes and positioning from both an internal and external perspective. The audit included: observing, documenting and inspecting PDS’ and our external recruitment supplier’s recruitment processes; reviewing job adverts and information available in the public domain; conducting leadership interviews and much more.
Equal Approach produced a detailed report outlining their findings, subsequent recommendations, and the next steps for PDS to take on our journey to recruiting more inclusively, with a number of quick wins outlined to support us to achieve immediate impact.
Following the inclusive recruitment audit Equal Approach conducted, we have and are continuing to implement a number of their recommendations and have seen much progress in a relatively short space of time.
I would highly recommend Equal Approach’s services to organisations looking to understand the barriers within their recruitment processes and make them more inclusive.”
