If you want your employees to represent your customer and community base then you need to attract and retain a diverse range of talented people, not just those who are most likely to fit in with the people you already have. Being compliant with legislation and making sure people across your organisation understand its implications can reduce the risks to which your organisation is exposed. There is often a degree of fear and misunderstanding about such legislation and this unease can prevent people from acting. Understanding the policy context can help manage this fear and help diversity to be leveraged as a source of strength within your organisation.
In many organisations, activities that have links to employment legislation are carried out by both HR specialists and line managers. In both cases, it is vitally important that the people performing these business roles have the skills, knowledge and confidence that they need. Emerge can help both these sets of people.
