Our Commitment to DEI

At Elliott Scott HR we pride ourselves on having a diverse and inclusive workforce, which enables our business. 

We strive to both continually educate, and learn from, our team, our client and candidate community and our partners and suppliers too. We believe in creating a safe and open culture that allows each member of the team to bring their best and authentic self to work. We will not tolerate discrimination or other unfair treatment against any of our staff or users of our services, on the basis of gender, race, colour, age, ethnicity, marital status, family circumstances, disability, sexual orientation, political or religious belief.   

As a business that focuses solely on HR recruitment, we are extremely cognisant of and passionate about DEI. We proactively create and share DEI content and thought leadership with our HR Community including in-person events, webinars, podcasts, blogs, and proprietary survey data. Our DEI partners include; Inclusive Group, Resilience Institute and Arcadia Consulting. The Elliott Scott HR podcast, HR Insights, regularly features guest speakers on a wide range of DEI topics including overarching DEI strategy and trends, DEI in recruitment, multi-generations, and age at work, working parents, mental health and wellbeing, gender equality, inclusive leadership, and flexible working.

Our team is educated on DEI best practice and legislative requirements through our onboarding and training programmes and external events and partnerships. We leverage our knowledge of DEI to advise and support our clients and candidates, partnering with them to achieve their corporate DEI ambitions and personal goals.  

At a global and local level, we periodically review our practices to ensure they remain fair, compliant, and best in class. We believe that we are all on a continuous journey when it comes to DEI and welcome feedback from our HR community to underpin this.  

In 2024 we are partnering with Talent Spaces on their Inclusive Hiring Certification, which involves a detailed and impartial review of our recruitment processes, culminating in an action plan and roadmap which will hold us accountable for continuous improvement. We will publish more on this here when we have our review.   

We are not legally obliged to publish a Modern Slavery Statement, but we understand the importance of the Modern Slavery Act and run our business in alignment with its key principles.
