Our Diversity Services
Diversity and Inclusion is at the heart of everything we do
Creating, encouraging and supporting diversity is exceptionally important to us as a company. Our leadership team works hard to ensure that our culture remains inclusive to everyone that we deal with – our people, our partners and our candidates. We are committed to celebrating diversity and inclusion via action. We provide our employees and candidates with equal opportunities for employment and career and personal development on the basis of ability, qualifications and suitability for the job.
We understand that people from different backgrounds bring fresh ideas, thinking and approaches which result in an increase in innovation and creativity. For us, successful diversity and inclusion is about creating a culture of acceptance, respect, and teamwork in the workplace.
We constantly challenge ourselves to find creative solutions to improve diversity within the technology market.
One team working in partnership with our clients to build a diverse and inclusive culture in their organisations.

Our Diverse Recruitment Process
At NP Group we have worked hard to identify unique and innovative approaches to recruitment that result in greater success in attracting, hiring and retaining previously untapped, diverse talent.
Designed to increase the attraction, recruitment and retention of individuals with a disability, our three-part approach includes:
1) Internal auditing
2) Practical developments
3) Exploring existing working environments and cultures
We’re dedicated to increasing the employability of candidates from all backgrounds. Our purpose at career days is to provide young talent with the skills needed to increase their chances of submitting a successful application.
During the hiring process, it is imperative that objective, evidence-based, inclusive decisions are made. We run workshops to ensure this happens with every new hire, maximising the diversity of your hiring pool and the quality of your hiring.
Many businesses are aware that they lack female representation at leadership level. At NP Group, we focus on identifying highly qualified female leaders internally that can bring expertise and diversity at board level.
