New social mobility toolkit highlights the potential of untapped talent.

Date: 14 Nov

Socio-economic inclusion is not solely the domain of big corporate
businesses with large Human Resource (HR) functions. It is about
helping businesses and organisations of all sizes, up and down
the country, to access a wealth of untapped talent. Not only does it
offer businesses the opportunity to access a wider range of local skills,
many businesses are also finding that promoting social mobility
is a great way to embed themselves in the local community. SMEs
have a strong presence in social mobility ‘coldspots’ and they
know their local areas. They can therefore play a critical role in
improving social mobility, strengthening local labour markets
and rooting out merit wherever it lies.
