Audit

Establish where you are now in order to
craft an effective Diversity & Inclusion strategy

 

To effect true cultural change an organisation needs to approach D&I work strategically. MIX’s audit methodology is people-focused, agile and targeted: we don’t believe in compiling data for data’s sake!

 

Audit Process

Every audit which we deliver is different, but our process broadly follows the same pattern:

 

Kick off meeting

Working collaboratively to establish which metrics we need to gather and why

 
 

Desk Review

Our team review all internal policies and documents which relate to D&I

 
 

Individual Direct Interviews

With key stakeholders from across the business

 
 

Focus Groups and Colleague Conversations

What is it like to work in your organisation? Do colleagues feel a sense of inclusion and belonging?

 
 

Challenge Mapping Workshop

Reflecting on the gathered data, drawing out key themes that are priority areas for action

 

How do we benchmark?

We use an internationally recognised benchmarking tool which can be utilised by your own HR Team/D&I Lead annually.

This analyses 14 key areas, identifying whether the organisation is inactive / reactive / proactive / progressive or demonstrates Best Practice in each area.

We recommend this as a practical way to ensure that your Diversity & Inclusion initiatives deliver year on year.
