Recent CIPD report suggests only 52% of employers have a diversity strategy

A poll of over 650 HR professionals, conducted as part of the CIPD and Omni Resource Management Solutions’ “Resourcing and talent planning survey 2020”, suggests that many employers are failing to engage meaningfully with methods to improve diversity.

As a result, the research states that most of the businesses polled are taking some steps to recruit diversely, although they could take a more comprehensive approach.  However, 24% of survey respondents are making no effort to attract and recruit more diverse candidates to board-level jobs, 19% are taking no steps to address diversity issues in recruitment and selection processes generally and only 52% have a formal diversity strategy.
