At Gerald Eve we understand that people are happier, more motivated and perform better when they can express their own identities.
As a firm, operating in a highly competitive skills-driven market, we work hard to attract and retain highly talented individuals. Ensuring that we can all be ourselves, while working as a team, simply makes good business sense.
The firm works hard to actively ensure that diversity is more than a statement of intent – rather it is a value that permeates everything we do.
Gerald Eve also partners with external diversity networks such as:
- Stonewall (LGBT charity) – to help encourage a more inclusive workforce bringing equality to lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people. We are also a member of the Stonewall’s Diversity Champions programme to ensure we offer an equal, inclusive and inspiring environment for LGBT people.
- Changing the Face of Property – to help improve inclusivity and diversity across the property sector
- Women in Property
- We were one of the early adopters of the RICS Inclusive Employer Quality Mark signaling our commitment to improving inclusivity by adhering to the six key principles as set by RICS.
Gerald Eve’s Diversity Steering Committee, which is made up of fee earning and business services staff from across our business, is tasked with leveraging opportunities to attract and retain a diverse workforce. The committee is dedicated to creating and enhancing an inclusive workplace culture where diversity is not only accepted but valued and built into the culture of our firm.
Diversity can take many forms – diversity in experience and education. It challenges us all to think differently and see things from other perspectives.
