Developing a culture that fosters inclusion and accountability requires that employees at all levels are able to understand the importance of socio-economic diversity and actions being taken to improve it. 

Measurement, strategy and effective leadership all contribute to making sure that employees understand and feel ownership of an organisation’s social mobility efforts.

UK health and beauty retailer Superdrug and their sister business Savers are social mobility champions and have sought to embed a culture of inclusivity throughout its 18000-strong workforce. Social mobility is a core pillar of its ‘Everyone Matters’ approach to diversity and inclusion.

About the Masterclass:

For this Masterclass, Caroline King, Head of People for Head Office, Reward and Inclusion, will present a case study and outline Superdrug’s path to embedding a positive culture that supports social mobility, through effective leadership, transparency, strategy and data. 

Following the presentation, Joanne Mackie, Customer and People Director, Superdrug & Savers will take part in a fireside chat with Paula Kemp, the SMC’s Head of Employers’ Programme.
