Embracing diversity & inclusion is absolutely critical to an organisation’s success and competitiveness. At Mars, we consider ourselves an industry leader in this space. We actively promote and celebrate diversity in the workplace, both within our own organisation and through educating clients and candidates about its benefits.
We employ individuals from a variety of cultural backgrounds. At present, our staff represent 19 different nationalities from China, Russia, Iraq, South Africa, France, India, Italy, Sri Lanka and the Philippines – just to name a few!
We embrace gender equality and celebrate women in the business world. Currently 68 per cent of our employees are female, including our Chief Executive and Founder Lorna Alstin.
Flexible work arrangements
We openly support and promote flexible work arrangements for parents and employees who require greater flexibility in their professional lives. At present, 15 per cent of our employees are part-time.
Our approach to diversity extends to our clients and candidates. We initiate and run networking functions which target, promote and discuss diversity. These functions often include presentations from keynote speakers or industry experts.
We also offer our clients diversity-focused market mapping services. Upon request, we are able to include a targeted percentage of diverse candidates on shortlists for the roles we recruit.
If you would like to know more about our commitment to diversity, we’d love to hear from you.
