WHAT IS A SOCIAL MOBILITY REVIEW?
The Early Careers Group has designed a unique approach to helping organisations become truly inclusive workplaces.
Over 6-8 weeks, we’ll review up to five areas of your people, talent and DEI infrastructure through a unique social mobility lens.
This will provide you with a comprehensive understanding of where you are now, what your social mobility roadmap should look like, where your organisation is succeeding, where you can improve and – crucially – how.
