At Hanson Search, we are working hard to lead the way in addressing changes required in our industries in order to create a better tomorrow for our clients, our candidates, and our people.

Not only do we strive to improve our own business and processes, we are also working to improve the industries in which we recruit. In the last few years, we've focused on diversity initiatives, striving for greater representation at all levels and across all industries. We believe diverse workforces make better workplaces and create better thinking. For us diversity comes in many ways and not just what you see. Therefore, we have partnered with many different social action campaigns and diverse groups so we can have greater thinking and breath of connections. Our Founder Alice Weightman is an honorary member of Global Women in PR, Ambassador to the Ideas Foundation and member of the Disability Confident Campaign.

We recently launched our own Diversity Board to challenge our thinking and that of our clients. Our commitment to the industry is that all long lists and searches will include both genders and BAME candidates.

Our Initiatives Disability Confident

The term “disability” refers to a huge range of physical, mental and learning impairments that are faced by millions of people. Recent studies show that 1 in 3 people in the communications industry has a mental health condition – twice the rate for the general population. That makes disabilities our business.

We strive for greater inclusion and the removal of barriers preventing disabled people from fulfilling their potential.
