Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Improvement (EDI) Services Overview

Extensive research has been carried out by 1000s of companies, discussing the correlation between the improved performance of an organisation and its Diversity. Whilst the percentages might vary a little, the overwhelmingly positive findings don’t. There is widely published research about the numerous, direct and indirect business benefits achieved by being a Diverse organisation, such as increased productivity, performance, innovation and profit. The statistics make a compelling business case, with McKinsey and Deloitte claiming:

  • Racially and ethnically diverse companies outperform industry norms by 35%
  • Gender diversity boosts financial returns by 15%
  • Inclusive teams outperform their peers by 80% in team-based assessments
  • Highly inclusive companies are more likely to hit their financial targets by up to 120%

How will Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Improvement (EDI) help you?

Our EDI Improvement Framework© provides a clear framework of 150 measures against which an organisation is assessed, and improvements are planned. It gives clear and thorough consideration to all the areas impacting EDI performance, to guide the journey of continuous improvement.

Typical Business Challenge

EDI is complex, multi-faceted, intersectional and sensitive – and therefore really hard to get right. Initiatives meant to improve EDI sometimes result in destabilisation of the existing workforce, they can be confronting and uncomfortable and without clear business and ROI drivers and expert guidance can go off track.

Working with B2E’s Leadership Services Principal

Liz Mayers is the B2E Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Improvement principal/ She has extensive EDI experience gained from 25 years Consulting and Executive Search experience, and is the co-founder of specialist EDI consultancy business, ARE Consultants. She is passionate about Equality and the ethical treatment of people. Believing it is essential that organisations embrace and celebrate diverse talent and create a positive and inclusive culture for that talent to thrive, and by doing so enhance their business performance and growth.

Liz started her recruitment career with Reed Accountancy in the 1990s, which had a well-deserved reputation for the quality of its Equal Opportunities training at the time. This gave her a thorough understanding of the legal obligations for companies and first-hand experience of the (often very different) reality which existed in client organisations. Throughout her career, she has been a strong champion and advocate for EDI initiatives, particularly whilst in Executive Search when often tasked with addressing underrepresentation in Leadership teams. She became fascinated by the impact inclusivity, and the ability to be your authentic self, had on the successful outcomes of these appointments and founded ARE Consultants to improve EDI for organisations.
