Our internal commitment & values
Inclusion first, diversity second; without fostering an inclusive working environment, diversity will not flourish.
We are continuously striving to increase diversity in all forms at Berwick Partners, and create an environment where everyone is comfortable being themselves. We genuinely celebrate difference and listen to everyone’s opinions.
To this end, we launched our Unlimited programme which combines a number of our Allies groups.
These groups are made up of volunteers from across the business, whose goal is to ensure everyone feels valued, included and has a voice, that we actively improve in all areas of diversity, and that everyone always has someone to talk to about any issue. These groups are Age, Ethnicity, Gender, Disabilities, Mental Health, Menopause, Social Mobility, LGBTQ+ and Neurodiversity. Further details on our Unlimited programme can be found here.
We have already taken a number of important steps in the right direction. These include improving our family leave policy so that it more effectively meets the needs of all our people, adapting our promotions process to ensure it offers an equal footing for all, and working with partners such as Leonard Cheshire to create an open and inclusive recruitment process (we are a level 2 Disability Confident employer). We produce an annual Gender Pay Gap report which highlights the steps we’ve taken in the areas of recruitment, internal progression and salary monitoring, and makes recommendations for further action to ensure we are always improving when it comes to creating a fair and equal environment for men and women. We are also delighted to have become a signatory of the Race at Work Charter. We are the first executive search firm to be added to the Charter.
