‘Inclusive organisations are: twice as likely to meet or exceed financial targets,

and eight times more likely to have overall better business outcomes’

(Deloitte’s Human Capital Trends Survey).

‘It’s the best training I’ve ever been on – I really enjoyed

it . . . I actually wanted it to go on longer ! ’

It has been specifically designed to help staff understand more about their responsibilities for promoting equality under the law, and why it’s important.

Accusations of discrimination can have a significant impact on the profile and professional reputation of a business or organisation.

Many employers are unaware that they are liable for the actions of their employees. Their jokes or ill-judged comments (‘banter’) could result in a claim of discrimination.
