Humankind’s vision is for people of all ages to be safe, building ambitions for the future and reaching towards their full potential. Our values are to be honest, committed and inventive. Fairness and equality are pivotal to our organisation.
Since the initial report in 2017, Humankind has been through considerable growth and change, including a full rebrand from DISC to Humankind in 2018 and 35% organisational growth, year on year. This growth has been achieved through TUPE transfers of key service provisions which include clinical staff. The current proportion of female employees is 72% and male employees 28%, having changed by 1% in each category year on year.
Humankind anticipated the gender pay gap to widen in 2018 as a result of the growth and TUPE activity within the organisation. The 5-year strategy for Humankind strives to address this within its organisational remuneration strategy and aspires to reduce the gap year on year. We are aware that future growth plans may impact this in the coming year.
