Inclusive Talent Management

How Business can Thrive in an Age of Diversity

Published in July 2016. Organisations traditionally have had a clear distinction between their policies on diversity and inclusion and their talent management. The main driving force behind diversity and inclusion has been being seen to be a good employer, to be able to make claims in the annual report and to feel as though a positive contribution is being made to society. On the other hand, talent management activities have been driven by a real business need to ensure that the organization has the right people with the right skills in the right place to drive operational success. Inclusive Talent Management aligns talent management and diversity and inclusion, offering a fresh perspective on why the current distinction between them needs to disappear.

Featuring case studies from internationally recognised brands such as Goldman Sachs, Unilever, KPMG, Hitachi, Oxfam and the NHS, Inclusive Talent Management shows that to achieve business objectives and gain the competitive advantage, it is imperative that organisations take an inclusive approach.

The Inclusion Imperative

How Real Inclusion Creates Better Business and Builds Better Societies

Published in February 2014 The Inclusion Imperative showcases the inspiring commitment to inclusion the London Olympic and Paralympic Games’ organizing committee espoused. In it, Stephen details the techniques and frameworks that enabled it to truly deliver a ‘Games for everyone’ at London 2012.

“I believe The Inclusion Imperative constitutes the best argument to convince sceptics that real diversity and inclusion can deliver more engaged employees and customers, improved employee recruitment and retention, increase productivity and better group decision-making processes. Real inclusion saves money and improves efficiency in the systems of an organisation.”
(Stephen Frost)

Phenomenal – I have never seen such a holistic, strategic and effective mandate for organisational change.

One more sceptic converted, one more step to real inclusion, one step closer to improving the state of the world. I implore any senior executive who cares about wider society to read this book.
