Focus SB supports Design for Diversity campaign

“As an electrical manufacturer Focus SB strives to attract a diverse workforce but this can be a difficult task within our industry as potential employees can perceive a factory environment as a hard place to fit in.

“By signing up and pledging our support for the 'Design for Diversity' campaign we want to send a positive message to our future employees that we are committed to welcoming all people, and that we only judge new candidates on their merits, not on their age, disability, gender, sexual orientation or race.” Jo Cloute, Customer Service & HR Manager.

 

The Design for Diversity campaign has attracted huge support and has been featured by The Times newspaper, Elle Decoration, Vogue in an article by Jessica Salter ‘Interior Design Has a Race Problem - And It Needs to Be Addressed’ and House & Garden ‘Michelle Ogundehin on the imperative need to diversify design’ by writer and broadcaster Michelle Ogundehin. Learn more about the campaign from the founders, Rukmini Patel interior designer, and Kate Watson-Smyth interiors journalist, Mad About The House.
