Join The FSA

Do you work in football? Have you recognised the benefits of diversifying your workforce?

This is a story from the FSF archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.

KIO3Kick It Out, The Work Foundation and 7 Bedford Row are hosting a free seminar on current business examples which prove the benefits of diversifying your workforce.

The diverse nature of the playing staff at Premier League and Football League clubs is a powerful advert for English football. Players from across the globe grace stadiums up and down the country every week to prove how they can achieve outstanding results by bringing their own unique skills and attributes together to produce a winning formula.

But how does this reflect with the make-up of staff off the pitch?

A host of experts working across football, business and law will come together to share their experiences and discuss how workforce diversity presents a genuine business opportunity.

In the business world, there is growing evidence that organisations operating the best practice HR policies around diversity tend to perform better against operational measures of business performance. Leading employers are recognising there are real benefits to seeking to achieve a mix of people that reflects the diverse world around them.

Linking into Kick It Out’s Equality Standard, a framework which helps Premier League and Football League clubs encompass all areas of diversity, The Football Association’s 92-point plan and UEFA’s Club Licensing and Financial Fair Play Regulations, attendees will be given the chance to consult industry professionals on how they can best implement business practices and policies to create an inclusive environment.

The event takes place on Thursday 25th July (3pm-5pm) at 7 Bedford Row, WC1R, London.
