    ​Here is a short film detailing actions you can take to progress and nurture diversity in your organisation.

Social Mobility Employer Index

Skilled and talented people are the most important drivers of innovation and growth in a rapidly changing world.  That's why we are supporting the financial and professional services sector to access the skills and diverse talent it needs to compete now and in the future.

The Social Mobility Employer Index was launched in June 2017, a joint initiative between the Social Mobility Commission and the Social Mobility Foundation, in partnership with the City of London Corporation.

The Index ranks participating employers on their actions to access and progress talent from all backgrounds, and showcases their progress towards improving social mobility.

Nearly 100 employers from 17 sectors entered the 2017 Index, collectively employing just under one million people. Financial and Professional Service firms were well represented, taking seven of the top ten places. See the top 50 here (220KB)
