Empowering Young Talent in the Covid Economy

Young People are Experiencing Unprecedented Times

As companies turn to recruiting young people as part of the ‘Kickstarter’ scheme, we believe that a nudge in the direction of inclusive practices is needed. Sometimes in times of crisis we act without process, decide without thought and back-steps can be inevitable. Don’t just recruit young people at this time, do so inclusively.

Through this collaborative guide we can ensure businesses are able to use a wide range of expertise to shift the paradigm on diversity and inclusion at work for an entire generation. This will include the wider aspects of diversity and inclusion, but specifically relating to young people.

What is fair, unbiased recruitment? 

Want help getting where you need to be?

We offer a range of support.

Fair Reward & Compensation – Pay

Pay and reward are at the crux of employee retention and satisfaction. Employees that feel they are being paid unfairly are more likely to leave, disengage, or experience low productivity. 

Right now we need to be developing clear pay policies with fairness in mind, and, crucially, communicating these.

There is no single organisation with more experience of managing fair pay than Gapsquare – please get in touch if you are managing fair and inclusive pay practices.

Keeping employees content, active and engaged at this time of budget costs is crucial.

Great policy must be embraced by leadership. Gapsquare supports the development of inclusive policies which are actioned, driven forward and show measurable success.
