Living Diversity

What is BCS’s diversity vision?

The diversity of BCS’s workplace stands us apart. We believe great minds, skills and work ethic are uncovered in workers from every nation and every walk of life. Our employees and consultants’ life stories and backgrounds never hinder their ability to be productive and valued contributors to our business; rather, we celebrate these differences, highlighting the unique proposition each Balance professional represents to our Clients.

Where’s the Proof?

Drop into our workplace – we exclude no-one. Our consultants, candidates and contractors hail from varying ethnicities, religions, ages, sexualities and genders, as well as different socio-economic positions and abilities; and bring with them a deep well of experience from their communities. Our clients are the beneficiaries of these diverse backgrounds.

In 2015, Balance collaborated on the publication of an article for The International Journal of Human Resource Management. Entitled “Fitting the mould: the role of employer perceptions in immigrant recruitment decision-making”, this article is an enlightening read. Balance’s involvement illustrates our ongoing commitment to better represent the communities we’re part of and to break down barriers that have historically held back candidates from reaching their potential.

“Australia is a nation of immigrants. We’ve been lucky to have had a rich influx of highly skilled immigrants into our country who have created the nation we love today. Sadly, Australia also has a history of racism and whilst the amount of racism/discrimination has decreased over the years, it’s still prevalent today. We believe every worker should be judged on his or her merits and abilities.

BCS will remain proudly defiant in the face of those who seek to discriminate. Racism and discrimination stop here!”

Simon Hogg, Managing Director, Balance Consulting Services.
