Diversity

Diverse teams think differently. When it comes to risk, that's important. Raise the bar across your recruitment process, by selecting from a range of diversity recruitment features to facilitate more inclusive teams.

The reality is that for many businesses, diversity is still a nice to have not a strategic imperative. Cedar Search are proud to be different and love to work with organisations that share our passion.

Cedar embraces diversity and inclusion and seeks to promote the benefits in all of our business activities and has developed a business culture that reflects that belief.We continuously strive to level the playing field for executive and non-executive talent, finding opportunities for women, ethnic minority, and LGBT+ candidates.

Each and every Cedar Search employee commits to making a positive contribution towards diversity and inclusion not only in our own working environment but those of the organisations we work with.

The power of change

The McKinsey annual reports, along with numerous other publications, have demonstrated that companies in the top quartile for gender diversity on executive teams outperform on profitability and have superior value creation. Companies in the top quartile for ethnic/cultural diversity on executive teams were even more likely to have industry-leading profitability.

Diversity and inclusion is central to an organisation’s ability to attract, recruit and retain the talent needed to outperform competitors. Diverse groups make better, faster decisions with less bias and groupthink, and diverse groups are more creative and innovative. So if we believe that diverse teams make better, more considered decisions, our role is clear: to bring businesses and talented individuals together to build those high-performing, fantastically diverse senior teams.
