Diversity and Inclusion Surveys

Understand the impact of your workplace diversity and inclusion initiatives, and how inclusive your people feel your culture is.

Why People Insight
Diversity and Inclusion Surveys?

Diverse and inclusive cultures are essential to society and the modern workforce. McKinsey’s evidence shows that organizations in the top quartile for racial and ethnic diversity are likely to have 35% better financial returns than average in their industries.

Diversity and Inclusion mean a broad talent pool, better talent retention, and decision making that best represent our communities at large.

What People Are Saying About Our D&I Surveys

  • Fiona Wallace

    Brewin Dolphin

    The best thing about working with People Insight is how well they know our organisation, and the expertise and support they provide. It’s a consultative approach where they make insightful observations and suggestions which are relevant to where we are. We’ve built a rich programme that keeps evolving with our needs. We would be happy to recommend People Insight!

  • Naomi Bray

    HR Project Manager, Enstar Group

    A great partnership has been formed with People Insight as we worked with them to develop and roll out our first Diversity and Inclusion survey. They quickly built up an understanding of our business and made sure they were clear on our objectives so they could guide us to ensure the survey was successful and effective. This progressed to People Insight running Focus Groups with our employees to help further understand the results of the survey. Their insights and guidance have been invaluable in us being able to drive the agenda and have become a trusted supplier to us. Always quick to turn things around, answer any questions, follow up where necessary and most importantly a pleasure to work with.
