Social Mobility Employer Index launched
16 February 2017
The Social Mobility Commission and the Social Mobility Foundation have launched a joint initiative, the Social Mobility Employer Index, which will rank Britain's top employers for the first time on how open they are to talent from all backgrounds. Improving social mobility is a national priority, and the results of the rankings will appear in The Times this summer.
The index is open for submissions until 3 May. It is divided into seven sections, although employers are not expected to be able to answer every question or achieve a perfect score. The index is designed to provide a framework for employers to work towards. Employers have the opportunity to enter anonymously and receive detailed, confidential feedback on how they compare against their peers.
The Law Society will be participating, and encourage our members to do the same.
