Background

Recent legislation, such as the Employment Equality Acts (1998-2007) and the Equal Status Acts (2000-2004) outlaw discrimination on nine specific grounds (including Disability, Race/Ethnic Origin, Membership of The Traveller Community, Age, Gender, Sexual Orientation, Religion, Marital Status and Family Status).

As service providers and employers you are facing a range of challenges as result of this legislation and also becaused of increased diversity among your staff/customers. These include:

  • Potential for increased litigation from both employees and customers (which can result in heavy financial penalties).

  • The "Cost of Intolerance" which can be manifested in decreased profitability, lost customers, reduced market share, high employee turnover and low staff productivity.

  • The negative publicity and unwelcome media attention that can emanate from insufficient resource investment in diversity/equality issues can do long lasting damage to your corporate and brand image.

With our team of highly qualified/experienced staff we can help you to meet the above challenges and reap the benefits that come from effective diversity/equality management.
