Posted on March 2024

Phaidon International Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Report
Discover Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Insights for the Supply Chain Industry in Phaidon International’s DE&I Report

As an award-winning supply chain talent partner under the Phaidon International brand, clients often ask us how to improve Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DE&I) in their workplace so they can attract, hire, and retain top talent with diverse experiences and viewpoints.  

To provide data-backed insights, we have surveyed both employees and employers from our database to understand their perspectives on company culture, discrimination, development opportunities, and DE&I training and resources at their workplace to uncover trends, disparities, and areas in need of improvement. 

The results can be found in Phaidon International's DE&I report, which explores overall trends across their six specialist brands, plus a breakdown of results for DSJ Global, delving into DE&I in the supply chain industry.

Findings from these surveys include:




of female respondents said that it was important for leadership to reflect the diversity within their workforce, compared to just 38% of male respondents.

of female respondents were also aware of instances of discrimination, harassment, or bias at their current workplace, compared to only 34% of male respondents.

of organizations stated that they do not have DE&I training or education available for their employees.

Discover the full views of both employers and employees in the supply chain industry and uncover new areas of focus for your DE&I strategy, helping you to improve hiring, retention, and DE&I policies based on your goals, resources, and the needs of your employees. 

Along with our survey findings, this exclusive report also includes: 

    • How good DE&I workplace practices benefit both employers and employees 

    • The biggest DE&I challenges employers face

    • Key takeaways for employers and employees

    • DE&I resources for your region 

Ross Williams, Director at DSJ Global USA, explains how the industry’s take on DE&I has evolved in recent years:

“Historically the supply chain industry has been very male dominated, so maybe four or five years ago when DE&I was front and center in the news, many companies we worked with took a strong position on it, carrying out surveys and analysis or hiring management consultants. But now with talent shortages worsening, from my experience we are moving back into a more meritocratic society where clients just want the best person for the job based on merit, regardless of their background.”
