4 tips to managing diversity and gender equality in your company

4 tips to managing diversity and gender equality in your company

If you want to generate success in your company and work in a harmonious environment, then you need to consider each and every one of your employees, get to know their interests, and offer them the best treatment and commitment. However, one of the most important principles that should be commonplace in every organisation is the equal treatment of employees (regardless of gender, race or religion). Gender, for example, should not be a factor that influences how we treat our workforce. Having a gender equality policy shows employees that they are valued and that the company is serious about ending discrimination. Having a fair remuneration policy that is not distinguished by the employee’s gender, but by their job position and their development within the company is an important step towards gender quality too. Opt for a gender-diverse workforce Having more gender diversity in a company is very positive and not just for the company’s own benefit. In fact, the UK could boost its GDP by 9% if the female employment rates matched with Sweden’s for instance. The challenge for HR departments is to successfully and strategically find and enrol more women in their business. It could solve a real problem, breaking barriers of gender discrimination in the workplace and promoting equality within the company. Equality between your workers is essential It is important to not only review the salaries of your employees, but also other professional aspects such as career plans and promotions, ensuring that there are equal opportunities for both men and women. Equality will undoubtedly be a motivational element for employees, regardless of their gender, as having clear objectives is a contributing factor in maintaining employees’ interest levels Strike a balance between work life and family life Fostering harmony between work and family life is key to attracting and retaining talent. It can contribute to the company culture, and to a positive attitude and collaboration amongst employees. Another important point is not to make sweeping generalisations about different genders, and instead to consider the specifics on a case by case basis. Employees need to see that their family life is considered and respected. They will appreciate this and it will likely improve company loyalty in the long run. HR must ensure gender equality in their company HR’s role is essential in managing and promoting gender diversity within the business. They must ensure that the motivation and commitment of their employees is strengthened, which, in turn, strengthens the workforce overall and benefits the entire company.

Symphony RetailAI and Cognita Schools: Successfully deploying a centralised HR process while meeting local needs

Symphony RetailAI and Cognita Schools: Successfully deploying a centralised HR process while meeting local needs

When you’re a global organisation, the idea of remote work is hardly novel. Coordinating employees spread across different countries and time zones has always been part of the job for HR departments of widespread organisations. However, managing this complexity is never easy, and success lies in choosing the right strategy: Is it better to have multiple decentralised local approaches, or a single centralised global one? Besides having a global footprint, Symphony RetailAI and Cognita Schools couldn’t be any more different. Yet they have both found success in managing their global teams by adopting similar approaches that leverage an AI-powered platform. How did AI make remote work both doable and effective? Both Symphony RetailAI and Cognita Schools, who already used Cornerstone HCM solution, leveraged this further ease the transition into full-scale remote working during the pandemic. For many of their employees located across different countries, to whom remote work was very familiar, using one system helped to streamline communication, as well as make HR information (such as contact info, company policies and more) easy to access and update for all. At Symphony RetailAI, employees were given access to materials pertaining to mental health and remote work, to enable them to access support on-demand. Meanwhile, Cognita Schools incorporated their onboarding programme into the Cornerstone platform, making it simple for new starters to navigate the new world of work. How has this system benefitted the mental wellbeing of employees? Symphony RetailAI and Cognita Schools have both made mental wellbeing a top priority during the pandemic. Symphony RetailAI ensured that access to relevant support was easily available to all employees. The company invested in mental health training packages, some of which could be self-directed, to appeal to those who may want to self-support. Symphony Retail AI also promoted communities to encourage managers to share their knowledge and experiences. As Symphony Retail AI introduced quarterly check-ins this year, Cognita Schools is already benefitting from this particular functionality. In fact, through employee feedback, Cognita Schools discovered that scheduled check-ins for a specific time and date actually caused more stress than it alleviated. So instead, employees are now free to take charge of their own check-ins, scheduling and moving them around as they please and booking them as often as they choose. This flexibility has enabled Cognita Schools to adapt to the needs of its employees. How is Symphony RetailAI using the platform to answer questions about and promote inclusion? Having an inclusive culture at work is critical for a healthy workforce and organisational success. Symphony RetailAI conducted a survey to assess employees’ perception of its efforts to be a diverse and inclusive employer. Whilst scores were extremely high, the company wants to continue the conversation around diversity as well as expand its initiatives to promote an inclusive culture. Symphony RetailAI has invested in diversity and inclusion training packages, including unconscious bias training that now forms part of the onboarding process. Applicants applying to jobs through the platform are anonymised to avoid any bias in early-stage recruitment, and the system itself is run in several languages. How can using an AI-powered HR platform ensure employee medical information is collected and stored securely? For Cognita Schools, Cornerstone’s functionality has proven indispensable when it comes to collecting and storing medical information. Cognita Schools experienced challenges surrounding the amount of medical information being stored across systems in different details for different purposes in different places. Using one platform to collect and store this sensitive data, where information is inputted directly by the employee, has not only saved time from an HR administration point of view, but also made the storage and updating of this information far more efficient, secure and compliant. A global, centralised strategy has brought many benefits to Cognita Schools and Symphony RetailAI. Using Cornerstone’s platform both cuts down on time-consuming administrative tasks, while also giving employees an easy and intuitive way to interact with HR on various levels to improve their experience.
