/PRNewswire/ --
In 2011, the global consultancy Mercer, part of the Marsh & McLennan
Companies, started a partnership with the executive search firm eg.1 to help
cultivate, establish and support a more diverse pool of talent within EMEA for
immediate hiring and for longer-term succession planning.
Through the success of this work, Mercer has proudly received an Award of
Excellence in Diversity Journal's
"Annual International Innovations in Diversity
Awards
"
, which honours organisations that have demonstrated unique, out-of-
the box thinking and produced exciting initiatives that enhance workforce
diversity and inclusion.
Dr Siobhan Martin, Global HR Business Partner and key architect of this
innovation, commented, "Through the dedication of all involved we have
demonstrated that with a better approach you can realise major organisational
benefits by fully integrating the diversity and inclusion agenda into everything
you do. By changing the culture of our firm, we are creating a better
environment for our employees and ensuring we are delivering the very best
services to our clients."
Unlike typical engagements with more traditional executive search firms, eg.1
collaborates throughout an entire talent-planning process which links
seamlessly with the Mercer's Diversity and Inclusion strategy. By changing the
way it approaches the sourcing of candidates, Mercer is now able to promote
quality talent within the firm and also think dynamically about the key hires it
might make. Michele Gibson, Senior Associate at eg.1, added, "By thinking
creatively about integrating talent-planning into its Diversity and Inclusion plan,
Mercer has been able to be more proactive when hiring. This sends a positive
message to the market, not only about Mercer as an employer of the very best
talent from all backgrounds, but as a progressive place to work in general."
As a pioneer of the new era in executive search, eg.1 has developed innovative,
simple yet effective approaches to identify, engage and maintain relationships
across the talent spectrum.
Nathan Ott, CEO of eg.1, added, "We are proud that Mercer has won this
award. It all started with wanting to address the broad and emotive topic of
diversity and inclusion in the workplace a little bit differently. eg.1 is all about
pushing the accepted limits of what an executive search firm can do and this
shows how a real partnership can positively impact our clients and our clients'
clients."
