Make UK Diversity, Inclusion & Apprenticeships SurveyMake UK’s latest survey covering diversity and inclusion as well as apprenticeships is now live and can be completed here: Make UK Diversity, Inclusion & Apprenticeships Survey
Research tells us that diverse businesses outperform others. Companies in the top-quartile for ethnic/cultural diversity on executive teams are 33% more likely to have industry-leading profitability. By 2025, 75% of the global workforce will be made up of millennials who want their workplace to be inclusive. Make UK wants to ensure that no manufacturing business is left behind.
We are surveying manufacturers to determine what the average manufacturing business looks like and what, if any, measures companies are taking to encourage greater diversity within their business. This will form the basis of a report that will showcase best practice and offer support to those companies that want to pursue the diversity agenda further in their business.
This survey also includes questions on apprenticeships. With the number of apprenticeship starts falling we want to understand what will encourage manufacturers to recruit more apprentices to ensure that we do not face an acute skills shortage in years to come. We will use the findings to put forward recommendations to Government on how to improve the apprenticeship system.
All responses are completely anonymous.
The survey will close on Friday 9th April 2021 and can be completed here
