BIE D&I Leads

A culture of inclusion and belonging

"We know investing in inclusion helps us to perform better as a business and connects us closer to our clients. We recognise that there is more work for us to do, but we are committed to  questioning, listening – and continuing to take action and drive change." Rob Walker, CEO. 

We are committed to supporting organisations to build diverse leadership and to foster the inclusive cultures that will enable their people to succeed. Our role is to support organisations to think differently about talent as we attract extraordinary leaders.

Data Training

Data

We conduct yearly internal diversity data monitoring; external quarterly data monitoring for our interim candidates; and data gathering for our permanent searches per role – either requested at longlist or upon completion.

Training

We partner with external D&I Culture Consultancy to provide ongoing internal Diversity & Inclusion training for all employees (not just billing consultants) to help counter any bias at selection stage.

#10000BlackInterns

We are proud to be part of the #10000BlackInterns steering committee, an initiative that offers paid work experience across various sectors, as well as training and development opportunities and mentorship for the Black community.

Meet The Team

Our Approach

We feature diversity through every aspect of the recruitment process. We are mindful that there are many potential routes for bias to infiltrate and adversely impact client and candidate outcomes. At each stage we take care to ensure we address these in partnership with our clients, while also supporting their diversity goals.

Networks and Intelligence

BIE has an extensive network of cross-sector D&I leaders who collectively form the BIE “Authenticity” group. Members of the group meet regularly to share industry knowledge and insights with each other and our wider client base, enabling all involved to improve business processes and better integrate inclusion initiatives.

As part of our commitment to D&I, we faciliate discussion and debate through a number of regular panel discussion events, roundtables, articles, interviews and papers, which benefit our clients, candidates and wider networks.
