Attract top talent and recruit more clients with our inspirational online EDI training

Building a successful, innovative business means going beyond just ticking EDI boxes. It’s about fostering genuine inclusion, backed by a thorough understanding of the benefits diversity and inclusion can bring. After all, if every person in your organisation thinks the same, looks the same and has similar life experiences, how can you expect to stand out from the competition?

Embracing equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) means creating a culture that empowers everyone to be their best. It gives people the ability and understanding to treat everyone equitably, making for better client relationships, an enhanced reputation, and the ability to attract and retain top talent.

At The Professional Alternative we’re all about being different. So our online EDI training goes way beyond the basics, covering everything from recruitment practices to conflict resolution strategies.

What can you expect from our online equality, diversity and inclusion training?

Some training is like an all-you-can-eat buffet. You keep going long after your appetite has waned, ending up stuffed with information, strangely unsatisfied and needing a lie down. Our online EDI training, on the other hand, comes in bite-sized portions, making it easily digestible, enjoyable and surprisingly moreish.

In common with all of our eLearning courses, each online EDI training module has been designed to get the thumbs up from industry regulators such as the ICAEW, the ACCA and the SRA. Completing the training will also ensure that you meet your legal obligations and clock up valuable CPD time for your year-end report.

But more than that, our online EDI training provides a real understanding of why equality, diversity and inclusion matter, and how it can make a positive difference – to individuals and businesses alike.

How our online EDI training will make you stand out from the crowd

If attracting a diverse range of job applicants is important to your firm, it’s vital to ensure that your new hires want to stick around – by helping them fulfil their potential . The business benefits of doing so are well-documented, with the most diverse employers outperforming their more homogenous rivals in stat after stat.

It’s not enough simply to not put all your eggs in one basket; you also need to think beyond a single breed of chicken and encourage them to begin laying.

For anyone scratching around wondering how, here’s a hint: it all starts with training. But just like people (and chickens), not all online EDI training is the same. Comprehensive, engaging and easy to fit into the busiest of schedules, our equality, diversity and inclusion training has everything you need.

What’s included

Comprising four modules, our online diversity and inclusion course takes you through the interlinked concepts of equality, diversity and inclusion, the legal framework, strategies for embedding EDI in everything you do, and possible obstacles and challenges.

Each module features a case study to illustrate how EDI works in practice, and an assessment to test your learning – complete them all and you’ll unlock your personal equality, diversity and inclusion training certificate.

Our online EDI training covers:

  • an introduction to EDI and the benefits of a more diverse workplace
  • the Equality Act 2010: what it means for employers, the exemptions that exist, how not to fall foul of the legislation (and the possible consequences if you do)
  • what ‘protected characteristics’ are
  • how to recognise discriminatory behaviour and handle complaints
  • creating and maintaining an inclusive workplace – from recruitment to ways to get everyone on board
