“It was such a comprehensive process; the benchmarking service was invaluable in ensuring we could offer the most competitive packages and attract the very best talent for this exciting new venture; and having all HR policies written up in two weeks was an incredible help.”
Damian Pearce, University of Warwick
Two progressive policy bundles that will enable you to quickly and easily implement new EDI policies that demonstrate your commitment to protecting and supporting employees in all areas that may impact their wellbeing at work.
Best practice, compliant policies provided ready to integrate into your current policy set. These include policies such as Menopause, Gender Transition, Pregnancy Loss, Domestic Abuse, and another 15 more!
The same bundle of policies is available tailored to your brand and tone of voice. These will be delivered ready to go, making it even easier and faster to implement new, compliant policies at speed.
Demonstrating that your organisation is truly inclusive isn’t limited to your EDI policies. It is important to consider all of your people policies and how well they convey your values.
For example, traditionally gender-specific policies, such as maternity/paternity, may use pronouns that exclude those who don’t identify with traditional gender binaries.
Our experts will review your current policy set to identify where EDI updates are required. They will provide professionally marked-up edits, making it quick and easy for you to review and update all of your people policies.
Our consultants will also highlight any gaps in your policy set and make recommendations for how you can enhance your EDI credentials with new, progressive policies.
LEARNING & DEVELOPMENT
Your EDI initiatives will only be successful if they are clearly communicated and understood by leaders, line managers and employees throughout the business.
Our hugely popular learning and development programmes help to embed a culture of equality, diversity and inclusion. Coaching makes people feel engaged and included while ensuring individuals are aware of their role in supporting EDI initiatives.
We offer a range of coaching services tailored to the needs of your organisation that provide practical, real world guidance for line managers and employees.
Our aim is to help raise awareness of the value of an inclusive culture and empower managers and employees to take ownership of EDI initiatives.
EQUALITY, DIVERSITY & INCLUSION CONSULTANCY
Assess how inclusive your organisation is with our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion assessment calculator. Then get in touch to find out how our EDI Consultancy services help you to future-proof your EDI strategy.
Step 1 - Understanding your needs
For some organisations, our suite of templated, progressive policies are everything you need, while for others we’ll be updating your existing policies or creating a bespoke suite of documents tailored to your business. Our expert consultants work with you to identify what best fits your needs.
Step 2 - Creating, rewriting and harmonising your people policies
If your consultant identifies a need for new, progressive policies, they’ll focus on understanding your strategy to ensure everything we create is in line with your organisation’s values and objectives. Your dedicated AdviserPlus team will then build a comprehensive suite of clear, succinct and engaging policy documents.
If your organisation is aiming to harmonise a varied suite of policies, we’ll help you produce comprehensive, streamlined policy documents that demonstrate your commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion.

Our expert team can help to ensure your Equality, Diversity and Inclusion initiatives are a success with:
- Training sessions (remotely or onsite)
- Organisation-wide communications via our eComm platform
- Supporting documents such as letters and checklists
- Practical guidance for managers and employees
