FlexMR Commit to Market Research Society Inclusion Pledge

The MRS Inclusion Pledge involves five commitments that contribute to safer and more representative workplaces.
MILNTHORPE, U.K. - July 27, 2022 - PRLog -- FlexMR are proud to have signed the Market Research Society Inclusion pledge, reflecting our commitment to promoting diversity, equality and inclusion within the insight industry. This marks a key step in our journey to creating a better future. It forms a significant part of our ongoing commitment to our staff, ensuring everybody at FlexMR feels heard, empowered and able to drive positive change.

In taking this action, we are joining 60+ market research firms within the UK who are contributing to long-lasting, sustainable and meaningful change. We are honoured to be in good company – with a diverse array of firms that collectively will be able to create a fairer industry, that better reflects the makeup of those we represent.

By signing the pledge, we have agreed to:
  1. Gather and publish pay statistics annually and where it is found, dismantle pay discrimination based on gender and ethnicity.
  2. Ensure our staff are representative of the full diversity of our business locations.
  3. Work towards the achievement of appropriate government targets for the representation of women and minority ethnic groups at senior management and board level.
  4. Improve the recruitment of a representative intake with initiatives such as ending unpaid internships and supporting school university and apprenticeship programmes.
  5. Create safe places to work for all, committing to:
    1. Create accessible environments in our offices for all staff and visitors
    2. Adopt timeTo Code of Conduct on sexual harassment
    3. Develop a proactive culture that supports whistle blowing
    4. Train staff to recognise those who need help for stress or mental wellbeing
    5. Create appropriate support systems

Pam Taylor, Managing Director of FlexMR commented, "As our business continues to grow, it's important that we continue to do so in a way that celebrates diversity. I strongly believe that embracing inclusivity, and the principles of the MRS pledge, will help us achieve this and attract the best talent from both inside & outside of the research sector."

Joining the MRS Inclusion Pledge reflects only one part of our DEI journey. In early 2022, we outlined our full plan to advocate and support diversity and inclusion within the sector.

Gareth Bowden, Head of Operations, added, "There has been a visible step-change over the past few years in how companies and industries are proactively working to create a future free from historic and ongoing structural inequalities. It's a work in progress, but I'm proud to be part of an industry and company at the forefront of that conversation. The workplace of the future will look very different to the workplace of today, and it is for us all to make."
