Why do finance professionals need to be trained in Equal Opportunities and Diversity?

Importance of law to financial training
As an employer you have a responsibility to create and maintain a working environment free from discrimination and offensive behavior. Your employees need to understand their role – their lack of compliance will make you, the employer, and potentially themselves, liable in employment law. Equal Opportunities and Diversity Training for all the workforce will reduce the risks of costly mistakes. Costly mistakes means damages; wasted management time and affects an employer’s corporate reputation.

Prevention is always better than a cure.

From a compliance perspective, employment law training to staff in the application of Equal Opportunities Policy/Harassment policies, assists an employer’s defence against a discrimination claim. Mandatory equal opportunities training ensures that the manager knows how to behave in the workplace.

Aside from compliance, equal opportunities training is an excellent internal and external marketing opportunity. The employer has the opportunity to communicate in a less formal atmosphere:

• Its values
• Its expectations
• The objective framework for performance and career growth
• Its strategy (both short and long term).

Externally, clients like to know that they are working with an employer focused on equality and diversity.

Employment Law Training also positively raises the profile of the employer’s HR team- employees will know:
• When
• Where
• To whom they need to go for assistance

Employees therefore have clarity and security that their employer genuinely abides by its policies and procedures. It also makes for a happier working environment!
