We have a genuine desire to create a more inclusive and diverse workplace where everyone has a sense of belonging in a culture that engenders innovation and better outcomes. Inclusion & Diversity are at the core of who we are and what we do.
I&D is hardwired into our business. Unlimited is our philosophy, our commitment – our call to action. It is our ambition that Inclusion enables our people to contribute without limits.
Unlimited fosters the infinite potential of:
Our Unlimited Allies
An Ally within Odgers Berndtson is an individual who believes all colleagues should experience equality, fairness, dignity and happiness at work. We currently have nine Allies groups: Age, Disability, Ethnicity, Gender, LGBTQ+, Menopause, Mental Health, Neurodiversity and Social Mobility. The Allies groups are run by our employees, with over 25% of our workforce being a member of one of our Allies groups.
Our Allies groups have created a Lexicon document, which is continually evolving, to educate our employees on the different resource groups, and to ensure everyone has the right words to use to start the conversation - to celebrate the best in people and not unwittingly offend or cause embarrassment. One of our core values is integrity, and through using the right language, we express and live a culture of respect, treating people as they wish to be treated.
