As an Academy specialising in diversity, we want to help create and support a culture of inclusion.
Using our retainer service, you are able to interact with our experts on a regular basis, supporting your diversity strategy and building an effective understanding and delivery of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion across your business.
Why take a retainer service?
Having access to the right resources and support empowers your organisation to take a long-term and strategic approach towards Equality, Diversity and Inclusion. Through a regular dialogue with our experts, we help you manage your diversity agenda and deliver powerful results, building real expertise within your own organisation.
How does a retainer service work?
Think of our retainer service as building a partnership with a team of external subject matter experts who are on hand to support your diversity programme.
One of the challenges for many learning and development or human resource departments is being able to demonstrate the impact that their work has on the growth and development of the organisation. Our team will work with you to ensure that you are providing the right training to the right employees at the right time, as well as implementing the best strategy for your business and having appropriate policies and procedures in place.
Once you have a monthly retainer in place with The Academy for Diversity, we will support you in identifying the right actions and activities to ensure you become a truly inclusive organisation and a leader within your industry.
What is included in a retainer with the Academy?
Our team of subject matter experts can be as hands on as you like and provide you with support in the following areas:
- Developing a strategic approach to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion
- Establishing diversity networks within your business
- Stakeholder Engagement
- Providing training materials and resources
- Interacting with regulators on your behalf
Depending upon your requirements, we can provide support for several days per month or be at the end of the phone to deal with any questions your team may have around Equality, Diversity and Inclusion.
How much does a retainer cost?
The Academy team have experience of working in a wide range of sectors and industries from hospitality, healthcare, governance, financial services, local authorities, airports and retail environments.
We will work with you to identify the most appropriate and cost-effective solution for your business.
The cost of a monthly retainer is entirely dependent upon the level and type of support you feel you would like and we would be happy to chat with you to discuss your individual requirements.
