About us Equality and Diversity
The Harvey Nash Group fully supports the aims of the UK Equalities Act 2010. We believe equality and diversity is necessary for:
- Individuals: everyone has the right to be treated fairly and the opportunity to fulfil their potential.
- The economy: a competitive economy and successful organisations draw on all the available talents and ability
- Society: a more equal society offers more stability in the long term which is attractive to business
Harvey Nash Group have become the first recruitment firm to be certified with EY's National Equality Standard, one of the UK's most rigorous and prestigious accreditations for diversity and inclusion. To be awarded the National Equality Standard (NES) Harvey Nash UK have undertaken a robust assessment against more than forty criteria, over an 18 month period. The assessment was carried out by trained NES assessors who conducted comprehensive interviews and in-depth surveys with over 100 staff, as well as reviewed procedures and documentation and legal compliance.
In the UK, we have helped establish the fastest growing senior professional network within the executive recruitment sector: Inspire.
Inspire is a unique forum for senior business women to meet and exchange ideas and experiences with their peers with a mission to promote female Board and Executive participation. Membership has grown to over 1,000 board level members in London, New York and Sweden. Through our events, forums, white papers and influence, Inspire is delighted to play a major role in promoting gender balance in the board room and within the company. This is achieved through an active extension of the pool of talent in which shortlists are put together.
Harvey Nash Scotland’s participation in the "Girl Geek" dinner network is also aimed at supporting the community of business women in the technology and creative sectors.
Harvey Nash not only ensures that employment decisions are made consistent with equal opportunities legislation in each country, but, the Group actively encourages a diversity consciousness among its management, staff and clients. One of our key principles is that the Group’s senior management is made up of nationals in the country in which they operate, who understand the market and are naturally integrated in the local business culture.
Due consideration is also given to the recruitment, promotion, training and working environment of all staff including those with disabilities.
