Odgers Berndston UK to pilot ground breaking Inclusive Recruitment Diagnostic tool

lobal Leadership Services, Executive Search & Talent Consulting firm Odgers Berndtson are to pilot an online inclusive recruitment diagnostic tool working alongside some of the UK’s most prestigious brands.

Sue Johnson, Managing Partner of Odgers’ Inclusion & Diversity Consulting Practice, is leading the  market-leading pilot and said,

“Diversity is uniqueness, what makes us different. Increasingly, however, organisations are focusing on inclusion, the sweet spot that can be defined as ‘belongingness’.

Getting it right enables individuals to bring their whole selves to work, and organisations benefit from their people feeling comfortable as a result.”

Research by the Harvard Business Review, Deloitte, McKinsey Group and the Boston Consulting Group has found:

  • Inclusive teams solve problems faster and are 87% better at making decision
  • 35% are more likely to outperform their competitors
  • 70% are more likely to capture new markets
  • Are 1.7 times more likely to be innovative

The Inclusive Recruitment Diagnostic is an online, interactive tool which measures maturity levels in the six key stages of recruitment resulting in evidence-based recommendations.

Sue Johnson said, “This is an analytical and evidence-based tool which provides a laser focus on activity and identifies how inclusive a recruitment process is in place within an organisation.”

“We are delighted that so many of the top UK brands share our vision and are participating in the pilot including several FTSE 100 businesses, a leading manufacturer, retail chain and London-based University.

It is expected that the Inclusive Recruitment Diagnostic will be available to market in the Spring of 2023.
