In conjunction with the Social Mobility Business Partnership, Smart Works and Tent Partnership for Refugees, our half-day Social Mobility Conference explored the increasing importance of improving this key area for businesses, their locality and employees. Speakers discussed the principles of social mobility, how different businesses approach it from recruitment, retention and progression, and the support social mobility organisations can deliver.
The programme featured keynote speakers from social mobility groups and an insightful panel discussion with business leaders from Greggs plc, University of Law, Pennon Group plc, NewDay and Northern Asian Power.
Squire Patton Boggs is proud to be named a top 75 employer, ranking 9th, in The Social Mobility Foundation’s Employer Index. Social mobility is an important strand of businesses’ ESG agendas. We all have a key role in helping create and sustain social mobility and help establish a more inclusive workplace.
