Breaking through class ceilings

How can diversity and inclusion within the team bring diversity of thought to the valuation business?

Last Summer, we set out our plan for commercial valuation for the next five years. We are transforming our business – and ensuring that we put inclusion firmly at its core.

This approach to building a forward-looking team is fundamental to our success and enables us to bring the best people into our business and to use our growth in a positive way to increase our diversity.

“You can’t be what you can’t see”

We have always been passionate about bringing diversity into valuation, and our track record speaks for itself.

We want everyone in valuation to feel valued – which we are doing by making sure we create opportunities for all via our recruitment approach, our interaction with schools, our flexible working approach and opening a global mobility programme.   We are also listening and learning – from our colleagues and clients and making sure that the future team has the skills in place for the valuer of the future. 

“Real estate is bigger than being a chartered surveyor”

Despite the ongoing global pandemic, over the last year we’ve made positive strides towards achieving our goals.  In this podcast, Ollie Saunders and Sasha Covington talk about diversity in valuation and why they are so passionate about it.
