Suki Sandhu is the founder and CEO of the London based firm Audeliss and INvolve, ” an inclusion organisation which helps businesses transform their cultures and create more inclusive workplaces.” Since its founding in 2011, Audeliss has worked with many well known brands including Sainsbury’s, Aviva, Virgin Money, and the Bank of England for the purpose of improving its workforce diversity.
Sandhu’s company has been successful in its purpose so far. “The demographic of leadership teams and boardrooms at companies Audeliss works with has changed since 2011, with 65% of appointments now being diverse candidates.”
Audeliss has been so successful that it gained Sandhu recognition to be included in “the latest New Years Honours List, where he was awarded an OBE for services to diversity in business.”
According to wikipedia “The New Year Honours is a part of the British honours system, with New Year’s Day, 1 January, being marked by naming new members of orders of chivalry and recipients of other official honours.”
But Sandhu is not looking to stop here. “In Britain, the UK government made it mandatory for companies with 250 employees or more to publish annual gender pay data. However, there is no such legislation in place for employers to reveal the pay and treatment of ethnic minority workers.” Sandhu wants to expanding reporting to include such pieces of information to help further equal the workforce playing field.
Audeliss recently opened an office in New York and is looking to continue its successful partnerships to enhance opportunities for minorities at work. Make sure to check out more news on Audeliss at https://www.audeliss.com
