但是，尽管今年早些时候出现了由“黑人的命也是命（the Black Lives Matter）”运动而引发的全球影响，但来自13,500多名受访者的调查结果表明，这并没有导致D＆I在组织层面上的重点发生变化。
UK - MAJORITY OF EMPLOYERS SAY D&I POLICIES ARE IMPORTANT IN ATTRACTING NEW TALENT
(Aug.24, 2020, /staffingindustry.com/)The majority,67%, of employers in the UK believe their organisation’s diversity
and inclusion (D&I) policies are important to help them attract new talent, according to research from Hays.
Hays also found this is also the view of employees, 70% of whom say that these policies are important to them when
considering a new role.
However, despite global momentum behind the Black Lives Matter movement earlier this year, the findings from over
13,500 respondents indicate that this has not led to a change in focus of D&I at an organisational level.
Over two thirds, or 70%, of employers say movements such as Black Lives Matter haven’t changed their
organisation’s focus on D&I, echoed by 65% of employees. Hays found that 33% of employers say the importance
of D&I in their organisation has increased, and even fewer employees (26%) agree.
According to the study, there are generational differences as findings show younger workers are more optimistic than
older generations in the workforce.
Over a third (34%) of those born in Generation Z (after 1995) believe that movements such as Black Lives Matter
diversity have made D&I more important, compared to 22% of Baby Boomers (born between 1940-1960).
Meanwhile 52% of employers think their employers’ focus on D&I will become more of a priority for their organisation
in the next three months. This was highest among employers in central government (70%), media (65%) and
healthcare (63%), compared to accountancy and manufacturing where it looks set to be less of a focus over the next three months
(32% and 28% respectively).
Yvonne Smyth, Group Head of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion at Hays, said, “Encouragingly, our findings confirm
that the importance of D&I policies is realised by employers and this is strongly backed up by employees, for whom
it is more of a priority than it’s ever been. ”
