Eda Winner Badge

Specialist Staffing Group's parent company has been awarded Company of the Year at the 2021 European Diversity Awards. Attended by leading lights from business, politics and the media, the EDA recognises those individuals and organisations whose outstanding leadership has made a genuine difference to the equality, diversity and inclusion agenda.

The awards are firmly established as the continent’s most prestigious and widely respected diversity event and celebrate achievements across all strands of diversity: race, age, sexual orientation, disability, gender identity and belief.

The Group was shortlisted from thousands of entries across different industries that are shaping the future of diversity in the workplace. As the only Global pure play STEM specialist staffing organisation, we hold a personal responsibility to ourselves, our candidates, partners and the STEM industries we serve to ensure that diversity is at the heart of everything we do.

With our four-year DEI strategy, we are committed to being a key part of the change needed to help solve complex global issues. While this has been a powerful moment to celebrate the hard work and progress made so far, there is always more to do and we are excited to continue leading the industry agenda, challenging ourselves and those around us to create a more diverse, equitable and inclusive society.

Matthew Blake, chief people officer at Specialist Staffing Group's parent company, said:

“This award is recognition for all the hard work and progress being made to make the Group a great place to work. I’m proud of the dedication from our leaders, DEI team and our people to affect change that can be felt in our organisation every day. In doing so, we truly live our purpose of bringing skilled people together to build the future - everyone is welcome at Specialist Staffing Group.”
