Santander joined the Social Mobility commission to hold the first in a series of Deep Dives for employers to explore how you can reach, attract and foster a diverse pool of talent.
The session was designed to explore how you reach that talent - attracting individuals from less advantaged backgrounds who may not traditionally apply for roles within your organisation, yet may be able to make a significant contribution in future. Breaking down socio-economic barriers is not only a just cause, it’s also smart business.
This 40-min playback contains a short presentation by the Social Mobility Commission followed by an in-depth case-study from Santander.
In the workshop that formed part of the session, the participants from a variety of sized-businesses, across multiple industries, explored ideas, shared insights and tackled some of the challenges in building an effective outreach programme – creating this checklist that you can download to help you refine your ideas and develop a ‘best-practice’ outreach programme.
