Employers across all sectors and around the world are striving to be inclusive and diverse and have embarked on developing plans and strategies to initiate change in areas such as recruitment, retention and progression.
BTEG was commissioned to develop the Greater London Authority's Inclusive Employers Toolkit which aims to help companies increase recruitment, retention and progression of young black men within their workforces. The toolkit is for use by senior leaders and recruitment staff within companies in the construction and digital technology industries, and their suppliers. However, many of the actions in this toolkit can be adapted and applied to other under-represented groups and to other industries.
BTEG, in collaboration with Eric Nyamekye MCIOB, Senior Construction Manager at MACE, is hosting an interactive and engaging online event to challenge the barriers experienced by BAME staff and particularly young black men (YBM).
The session will be a platform to explore why such disproportionate representation still exists within companies, what are the challenges facing YBM and BAME staff and explore how companies can ensure the retention and progression of their YBM and BAME staff.
