We believe diversity is one of the most important things for a business to be successful.
Having a diverse workforce opens up a plethora of opportunities; bringing together people of various backgrounds with different life experiences, different ways of thinking and processing styles can generate ideas or perspectives that others may not have ever considered or been aware of. Everyone has their own way of viewing a problem, shaped by the individual experiences that they have had. When tackling an issue or generating ideas to push the business forward, wouldn’t it be better to have multiple interpretations and approaches, rather than everyone contributing the same thoughts and conclusions? To have a diverse workforce, we know we must have a culture built on foundations of inclusivity; That’s why INCLUSION is one of the core values of who we are as a brand, as a business and as an employer.
Across our international offices, our leaders have signed a declaration to support and promote all the diversity initiatives, networks, groups and programmes to truly ensure we have a world-wide inclusive culture.

How we approach diverse hiring:
SciPro has been building a database for many years that provides a cross-section of the market. We use different job boards that are specifically created for diverse hiring.
We have an established R&D team that deploys an established methodology to help us seek out talent for both entry-level and experienced requirements for underrepresented groups e.g. utilising a search engine for college associations and other clubs.
We host and attend many events and meet-ups within the life sciences space focused on diversity.
We partner with different charities that help us focus on diversity and mental health within our own business and like to use this information when helping clients. Our employees have access to webinars through these charities who educate our team about how to help diversify a workforce.
