Managing Inclusive and Ethical Redundancies

I was recently asked to be a guest on the brilliant Diversity Ally vodast hosted by Ashanti Bentil-Dhue and Gabrielle Austen-Browne

This was their write up of the programme.

With the event sector currently in limbo and furlough scheme soon coming to an end, we are seeing events professionals being made redundant and businesses needing to restructure.

With an eye on diversity and inclusion, how do businesses handle this process in an ethical and inclusive way?

Particularly when we know in times of recession and austerity, ethnic minorities and women tend to suffer the most.

Today’s guest is Robert Kenward, co-founder of You Search and Select. An independent recruitment consultancy working with agencies within the Live Event, Experiential and Integrated Communications sector.

In this episode we talk about tackling the redundancy process without discrimination, restructuring without biases and how to protect our current talent pool whilst remaining attractive as individual organisations and as a sector to the talent of the future.
