Our actions

In FY21 we will:

  • Share the findings of their reports transparently and commit to delivering the changes required to realise our promises
  • Empower our Global and regional D&I Councils to ensure we deliver the recommendations of this work and hold us to account

  • Channel the multitude of charitable endeavours carried out by Hays people every year into areas that support our purpose of improving lives
