Deloitte believe in an environment in which their people are recognised and respected for their own strengths, values and perspectives. They believe that it’s only within such an environment that employees can truly be at their best.
To this end, they’re working hard to ensure they provide a working environment where everyone feels able to be themselves and can thrive, develop and succeed. Creating an inclusive environment is not a challenge unique to Deloitte; by uploading the film to YouTube and allowing people to share it with others Deloitte hope to inspire them on their own journeys of respect and inclusion.
To date the film has been viewed over 228,000 on YouTube and has won a multitude of major film festival awards.
Lloyds Banking Group’s Inclusion and Diversity team commissioned us to make ‘Take A Second’. Understanding that despite all the mechanisms in place, workplace friction still persists, and was recognised as a brake on success. This mandatory video-led learning programme was made with a simple aim; to encourage employees to be more mindful of other people’s feelings even when under pressure. There are some great metrics around this project that we can share.
