Case study 1

Cititec Logo Cititec is a global recruitment company that specialises in sourcing expert technical professionals. The business case in their global market is very strong. International banks are competing for the very best talent that reflects their customer base and Cititec is providing it. Cititec wanted to be able to demonstrate to others their high standards and quality, over and above competitors. They approached Sateo to help. The EQA Standard was chosen to help develop a framework which would allow the alignment of inclusive practice with our business strategy as a source of competitive advantage. Sateo coached Cititec’s key people, , through the entire process and gave consultancy support and training. In the early stages, Cititec people were in regular dialogue on a variety of questions. This helped them to move very quickly, building confidence that their work was of a very high standard, on point and directly linked to business needs. A key recommendation was for business development people to attend events and seminars. One of the best sources of inspiration was found at this point when sales people found that they were often the only agency at their client’s diversity seminars. Cititec have quickly got to the position where we are beginning to be established as thought leaders. This was one of the inclusion objectives set from the start. Clients now often ask Cititec to advise them on inclusion. The programme was started relatively recently, in early 2010 but Cititec are already seeing business being won on the basis of the equality practices adopted”
