Greenhouse Communications is an award winning PR and Digital agency and a BCorporation, the first PR agency to be certified in the UK with about 60 employees.
They believe business should be a force for good for both people and the planet. They have high aspirations for their DEI journey, as with their actions on climate emergency but needed a compass, this direction and the right tools and resources are the structure we were able to provide to their team.
The environmental sector, where this agency belongs, is the second least diverse industry in the UK after agriculture (The Two Sides of Diversity, Policy Exchange Research). This representation is reflected in the demographics of their employees and they are looking to increase the representation of racially diverse people working within their agency at all levels.
This team recognise that their journey of building a more diverse, equitable and inclusive team is not a one and done or a tick box exercise however, we have already seen a sharp increase in applicants from racially diverse background in their application process, an increased level of engagement from their ERGs and improved retention rate.
Another less obvious impact is the clarity in what other areas of diversity, beyond ethnicity where they are underrepresented and a plan on how to bridge this gap.
Their journey continues and we are proud to continue supporting them.
B&D Energy Ltd is provider of District Energy in the Barking and Dagenham area. It is wholly owned by Barking and Dagenham Council.
It was set up by the council as part of their drive for Barking and Dagenham to be the ‘green capital of the Capital’ by delivering low carbon and working towards zero carbon energy projects throughout the borough and the wider East London area.
We were tasked by the Board to come up with a remuneration policy that respects their ties with the Local Authority and also connected to performance and rewards and retains their team.
Our support has allowed this team to build, support and reward their team in a clear, concise and fair way. Having built the structure of a strong performance and remuneration process, we are proud to continue supporting this team with the day to day people management.
