The recipe for lasting business success
In this latest thought leadership piece, appearing in the November edition of Private Equity Real Estate (PERE), Jan Wade, Group Chief People Officer, discusses how embracing DE&I policies has the potential to generate stronger risk-adjusted returns for investors.
In recent years, we have seen conversations about DE&I take centre stage as part of a wider discussion about sustainability and meeting societal expectations about doing the right thing. In the current climate, where the number of women in leadership roles remains ‘a work in progress’ and businesses are adjusting post-pandemic to hybrid working, it seems like now is a good time for businesses to re-evaluate their DE&I processes.
