Diversity

A team that’s diverse

At PageGroup we know that a diverse team brings different perspectives and insight to our business, generating creativity, problem-solving and sustainability that wouldn’t otherwise be possible.
Our inclusive culture creates opportunities for everyone. We recognise and appreciate that every individual is different and we want to make sure our people are comfortable bringing their true selves to work. It includes a broad range of activities, networks and memberships. 
Different initiatives like [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected] and [email protected] represent the six dimensions of our global diversity promise:

A workplace for people of all sexual and gender identities

[email protected] supports our LGBT+ employees, recognising that people perform better when they can be themselves. Through [email protected] we have: 

  • Become a Stonewall Global Diversity Champion 
  • Created case studies - allies and LGBT 
  • Run focus groups 
  • Reviewed and rewritten policies 
  • Created the [email protected] ‘Yammer’ network 
  • Appointed senior sponsors and champions 
  • Held annual global campaigns supporting LGBT Pride Month 
  • Became the first recruitment company to be a Stonewall Global Diversity Champion
  • Participated in Stonewall "Starting Out Guide"
  • Regularly profiled allies and LGBTQI+ employees


For nearly a decade it seemed that acceptance of people who are LGBTQI+ was at an all-time high. Marriage equality became law of the land. High-profile LGBTQI+ people helped to create visibility for a once ostracized community. Many corporations and businesses went above and beyond to provide protections for LGBTQI+ employees and customers.

But those big wins failed to transform workplace culture for people who are LGBTQI+ and current realities have reminded many that we haven’t reached real inclusion and equality quite yet. For companies that would like to demonstrate their commitment to diversity & inclusion, having visible, vocal, and engaged allies is at the heart of the solution, but becoming an engaged ally isn’t always simple.

In June of 2018, PageGroup partnered with PFLAG to provide employee training to:

  • Understand more about changing LGBTQI+ terminology
  • Learn about who allies are, and what the ally journey looks like
  • Find out the good news about LGBTQI+ acceptance … and the bad news we often miss
  • Talk about the barriers to support allies often encounter
  • Learn about straightforward, everyday actions that can help you overcome barriers, express support, and create change in the workplace


In 2020, PageGroup Earned Score of 100 in the HRC’s 2020 Corporate Equality Index - the nation’s premier benchmarking survey and report measuring corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ workplace equality. PageGroup joins the ranks of more than 680 major US businesses that also received top marks. Our organization is proud to be one of the many companies helping to advance the cause of LGBT inclusion in workplaces across the United States and abroad.
