HR is the single most stimulating source of strategic, people-centric, business advice, practice and dialogue. For people-focused, forward-thinking, business leaders who want insight into, and examples of, business-contextualised HR to develop high-performing organisations. HR will always seek to give meaningful, relevant and useful business focus to its content. HR magazine does not provide you with 'same old story', but instead always looks to present information strategically.
By now we are well-versed in the importance of employee data when it comes to engagement, transparency and inclusivity.
However, there is a growing concern that the umbrella terms we use in the workplace, such as BAME, LGBT, and disabled, are missing their key objectives of creating a more diverse and inclusive organisation. Some believe these terms unhelpful as they group together varied experiences into one homogenised label.
So is it time for HR to rethink its categories and let the employees decide? Or will that overcomplicate the process and prevent organisations from being held to account? Our cover story explores the complexities of the labels society puts on us and how, despite being well-intentioned, they can create tension and distrust within an organisation.
