Diversity & Inclusion

We understand the importance of developing and maintaining an inclusive business culture. Diversity & Inclusion is vital in managing people risk but also seizing benefits including attracting top talent.

Simmons & Hanbury assists clients in building workplaces that attract, retain and release the full potential of diverse talent. We provide access to the widest possible human capital by removing bias from role design, search processes and reward practices. We achieve this by sourcing talent from all groups and ensuring everyone has the same chances to develop and advance. This includes:

Women in Leadership

We help organisations attract a proven pipeline of female leadership candidates. We identify high-potential female talent and help organisations communicate opportunities in ways that engage and encourage women’s strengths.


We ensure that all of our search campaigns include a diverse pool of candidates from the widest range of ethnic groups.

Flexible Working

Creating a flexible work environment can significantly enhance and improve employees’ work-life balance and enables our clients’ employment proposition and ability to attract diverse talent. Technology is at the heart of our firm and we have created a modern working environment leading to high employee engagement and promoting diversity and inclusion across our workforce.

Staff Mentoring

Our approach to diversity and inclusion is practiced across our firm, both internally and externally. We deliver tailored on-the-job training to our employees as well as providing extensive personal development plans and professional skills programmes to all our staff.
