Diversity training for all line managers.
The collaborative approach to our targeted female recruitment drive was extremely successful, the intention is to stay with this approach until the gender imbalance within sales is addressed.
Establish a female network group to ensure a long-term support system is in place for females in our workplace.
Further roll out of our female mentor programme.
Continual promotion of our female role models.
Introduction of flexible working to areas of the business that have not yet been addressed. Our commitment is to have every employee on a flexible working scheme by the end of 2019.
We have established a new partnership with BWS, an organisation whose aim is to support businesswomen in industry. BWS will be delivering pop-up events within Arnold Clark to train our females on confidence and leadership skills. It is hoped that through these events we will see more of our females putting themselves forward for promoted roles.
