How would you describe your firm's commitment to diversity?

2015

"There is a great facility for people with children as the company provide a crèche in the workplace. Also all recruitment is on an equal basis."
Local Government Graduate Development Programme,
"Diversity here is excellent, and I've never worked anywhere else that is so inclusive."
Local Government Graduate Development Programme,
"I would say my office has an excellent diversity policy. There is an in house crèche which is a fantastic facility for parents with young families. As well as this parents are offered the opportunity to take term time leave during the summer months and reduced working weeks all year round in order to care for their children."
Local Government Graduate Development Programme,
"There is an LGBT support network within the council, the majority of employees are women, as are three directors. There are also several disabled employees who appear to have been catered for in the layout of the building."
Local Government Graduate Development Programme,
"The council is committed to diversity, and it forms a strategic part of all policies and plans set out."
Local Government Graduate Development Programme,
"My impression is that arrangements are extremely conducive for women, especially those taking maternity leave and who seek more flexible working hours in the interests of their family. There also appears to be openness to ethnic minorities recruitment within the public service."
Civil Service Graduate Development Programme,
"The Civil Service and government does seem committed to diversity and it's an official part of recruitment. There is a good split between genders and there's a lot of options on shorter working time, career breaks etc. In practice it's still a very traditional, Irish organisation but I don't think it would be any harder for someone from a minority to get a job. It does seem to take equal opportunities seriously - though that's my impression as a white, Irish male."
Civil Service Graduate Development Programme,
"There is childcare available. There are LGBT organisations and events, the organisation is good at accommodating staff with disabilities, and retention levels seem very high."
Local Government Graduate Development Programme,
"The Civil Service generally has a good reputation when it comes to hiring policies, with people with disabilities well represented. There are also good structures in place to facilitate families, such as good maternity leave, term time, etc."
Civil Service Graduate Development Programme,
"As a public service organisation we operate a huge selection of family friendly policies from parental leave to shorter working year, permanent work-sharing and generous maternity leave provision. Every effort is made to allow people to continue working regardless of their caring or family needs."
Local Government Graduate Development Programme,
"The organisation is very open to diversity and is diverse in its own right. It is a very good place to work with high levels of respect and flexibility for people of different backgrounds and with different needs."
