"We have used VERCIDA over the last 3 years and have found the partnership very successful. During this time we have shown an increase in diverse groups, specifically women, BAME and LGBT groups, viewing our vacancies and applying for our roles. The content we host on VERCIDA has hugely increased our profile in relation to our EDI work and last year had approximately 10,000 hits on our articles and employee profiles. VERCIDA also provides us with excellent analytics helping us to understand which content is driving the type of applicants we need to target in addition to benchmarking data for our industry. I find the account managers proactive and very willing to share what is and isn’t working regarding specific content and the service and analytics work very well for us."
“VERCIDA is leading the way for other employers by offering opportunities for disabled people and creating a more inclusive workforce. I encourage other employers to follow VERCIDA’s example and sign up to the Disability Confident scheme, sending a powerful message to potential employees that they will get the support they need to thrive in the workplace.”
"At Homes England we value everybody as an individual, and their thoughts and ideas. We understand that differences in experiences and perspectives can foster creativity, improving decision making and problem solving. Creating this culture is essential if we are to set a leading example to the industry of growing inclusion and diversity. VERCIDA have worked diligently and continue to offer us support as we strive to ensure we can attract and recruit diverse talent to our organisation."
Cambridge Assessment have been working with VERCIDA since 2016 and they have supported us in our work to ensure that candidates from all sections of society feel welcome to apply. As experts in their field and with relationships with a broad range of employers, they have been able to give us insight into the wider market and allow us to tailor our own approach.
“What makes Aviva different is that, despite our size, we work hard to recognize the individual needs of every one of our customers. And with our sights set on becoming the most recommended employer in our market, it’s the same approach we take to our own people. We recognise the strength that comes from working with colleagues from a whole host of different backgrounds; colleagues with different experiences and fresh perspectives. Over the last 12 month VERCIDA have worked with us to attract and recruit diverse talent to our organisation”
