Our people, clients and the communities we serve are at the heart of our business. The Davies Foundation (registered charity number: 1181129) has been created to give our people the autonomy to choose how we support, give back and do good for the local communities we live and work within.
The Davies Foundation aims to support charitable causes across the locations we operate from around the globe, that have meaning and are close to the hearts of our people.
Our fundraising efforts come from our people taking part in organised events, such as sky-dives, treks and marathons with Davies match-funding the efforts of its employees.
Davies Disruptive Thinking is an innovation lab, placing the power of new ideas in the hands of our people. Our mission is to discover valuable ideas for our clients and our people so that we can reimagine our business by using new technology and creating a culture of innovation.
We have significantly increased our investment in technology and digital transformation, while nurturing new ideas and innovation from our people.
We like to think differently, lead change and make a big impact.
Since its launch, more than 1500 Davies colleagues have taken part in our lab programme and helped us to launch multiple new solutions for our clients.
Our Approach – At Davies we welcome different perspectives, support each other’s ambitions, and grow together. We work to build an Inclusive Culture where everyone can succeed.
We value the differences and benefits that a diverse workforce brings to the business. We will not discriminate on the grounds of any differentiating factor including age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, race, including colour, nationality and ethnic or national origins, religion or belief, gender identity, sexual orientation, body shape or neurodiversity.
Our approach to driving DEI is to focus on developing an Inclusive Culture focused on creating an Inclusive Working Environment and Increasing Representation through:
Informed by – Our approach is formed by feedback, both through our engagement survey and direct engagement with colleagues.
Actioned through – Davies colleagues will deliver DEI though both local and global actions. It is recognised that different geographies have different cultures, employment legislation and hold alternative views. At Davies, we are committed to building an Inclusive Culture through DEI, and we are respectful of opposing views held to the company’s position.
Our global activity will be driven through our employee led action groups:
We welcome the formation of new groups as we continuously evolve to meet the needs of our employees.
