Talking Employment Law: Diversity, Equity & Inclusion – Code of Practice

In June this year, the British Standards Institute (BSI) released a new code of practice on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) in the workplace. The code offers employers helpful resources and practical advice to assist them in creating a work environment that supports, encourages, and promotes DEI. Please see the link here for a copy of the BIS code.

In this second podcast in the ‘Talking Employment Law’ series, Rebecca Dowle and Lucy Densham Brown, members of the employment team at Clarkslegal, summarise the key takeaways from the code of practice published by the BSI. This includes:

  1. The five-step approach to understanding DEI
  2. Business strategy for DEI
  3. Policies, processes, and procedures
  4. Impact of DEI on performance
  5. Measuring progress and adapting strategy

If you have any questions about the code or how to achieve an effective DEI work environment, please contact our employment team who would be assist you.
