How diverse and open is L&D?
A new survey from TJ launched this week aims to reveal just how varied and equal people centric departments are today. A full report will be published online in July and the findings presented at the TJ conference
All those working in HR, learning and organisational development (OD) are great exponents of equality and diversity – but are they? A new survey from TJ launched this week aims to reveal just how varied and equal these departments are today.
As part of TJ’s commitment to the community it represents it is eager to get a snap shot of just how HR, L&D and OD departments are reflecting the demographics of their organisations and society at large. “All of us involved in people management and development know that recognising the value of embracing talent in whatever forms it comes is vital for organisational success.” says TJ’s editor Debbie Carter.
“However we would like to get a more informed view of what is actually happening in people departments right now. We want to answer questions such as: Just how diverse is the mix of people involved in HR, learning and OD development in organisation? Are gender, ethnic and age groups appropriately represented in these departments?”
By the very nature of the survey some of the questions are personal and sensitive and so TJ guarantees that all responses will be kept strictly confidential. However for those willing to provide contact information there is a chance to win one of three free delegate passes to the TJ 50th Anniversary Conference in London on 10th July. A full report will be published online in July and the findings presented at the TJ conference.
