Diversity and inclusion – The missing step on the career ladder

Kerry Simmons Report 6 mins

Our latest research has found that  a fifth of UK employees (20%) feel discriminated against in promotion decisions. The most common cause of this inequality is age (39%) followed by gender (26%) and employment status* (22%). While employers agree ageism is the most apparent at their company (12%), HR managers are most committed to tackling sexism.

Further to this, 29% of all employees believe that the promotion process at their company is unfair. This is in contrast to HR professionals with nearly all (94%) believing that the promotion process at their company is handled fairly, highlighting a distinct discrepancy between employees and HR.
