bonafide hr, a boutique outsourcing human resource solutions company, has teamed up with specialist consultants Convergent Consulting to push the diversity agenda in the SME space.
Shaheen Kadri, Human Resource Director of bonafide hr, says the SME space is rich in diversity, thought and creativity of ideas but lacks connectivity on this particular subject.
“That lack of connectivity is a result of the social climate we live in today. Indifferences are not embraced but kept at a distance. All appears well, but look closely and not enough is being done around inclusion and diversity.
“This partnership with Convergent Consulting will strengthen our ability to educate, knowledge-share, promote and to raise a spotlight on this interesting HR discipline through workshops and seminars, as well as bigger-picture programmes that drive inclusion and diversity into the SME workspace.
“Our aim is to allow organisations in this space a platform to ask questions, learn from each other and celebrate diversity. We want them to see how it can enrich their business goals and add commercial value to their company.”
Heeral Gudka, Managing Director of Convergent Consulting, says, “Convergent Consulting is delighted to be collaborating with bonafide hr. This is an exciting step forwards in the evolution of company cultures and together we are delighted to be at the forefront.
“With our combined passion for creating inclusive workspaces, bonafide hr and Convergent become the place to go for forward-thinking SMEs. We can’t wait to work with them.”
About Convergent Consulting – “We’ve always been passionate about helping businesses build inclusive cultures, where the value and wellbeing of every individual is celebrated. And at Convergent Consulting we believe that to build a truly diverse business, Inclusion must come before Diversity – so we’re inviting our clients to adopt the same belief.
