We’d like to extend a massive thank you to Voice At The Table who joined us last week for an incredibly insightful Inclusive Recruitment and Unconscious Bias Training workshop.
The workshop offered an exploration and understanding of common biases in the workplace and their impact, outlined inclusive recruitment practices, and provided examples of successful de-biased recruitment processes.
Our recruitment and leadership teams found the workshop incredibly valuable for the studio!
Talent Acquisition Specialist, Rosey, said, “the Voice At The Table training we had was so valuable for our Talent Acquisition team – it was so positive to see we’re on the right path with all the steps we’ve already been taking to make sure our hiring process is as inclusive as possible, and we have also been able to generate loads of ideas to improve things even more!”
Talent Acquisition Assistant, Claire, added, “Inge and Joyce gave us a great insight overall, including case studies from previous companies which were well presented. Breaking down the individual areas of Unconscious Bias and discussing examples provided some valuable feedback for us in the session - would absolutely recommend!”
Thank you so much again to this fantastic team, who armed us with insights and actions which allow us to greater strengthen our commitment to inclusivity here at Firesprite.Firesprite, First Party Playstation Development Studio, 2023
I just wanted to say how grateful I am for the sessions you’ve provided us with over the past couple of months. They have instilled a new confidence in me, both around what we’re doing as a studio but also as an individual and I’m determined to push ahead with everything you’ve shown us as much as I can.Software Engineer, Video Games Developer, 2021
Voice at the Table have been able to bring a fresh, external perspective to our training, plugging the gaps in areas we were not expert in. Their knowledge and trainers in the areas of equality and diversity are very much in tune with our times. Plus they have been an absolute pleasure to work with, supreme experts in their fields.
Our organisation is very progressive in the area of D&I, but didn't have the same depth of training offered by Voice at the Table, so we could supplement what we had with their trainingUKI Sales and Pricing Performance Lead, Accenture, 2020
The personal and realistic approach adopted by Voice At The Table to our Diversity and Inclusion challenge meant we could develop a solution that worked for our company, meeting us where we were in our D&I journey. Before we worked with Voice At The Table, our leadership talked about the value of D&I to our organisation but there was no strategy and only a few initiatives. Having worked with Voice At The Table, we have begun to make slow but steady progress and we are all encouraged.
Rina’s skill and experience allowed us to have honest and non-judgemental conversations which was refreshing and helped with us being able to roll-out our workshops in a way that helped our employees participate freely. We recommend Rina and Voice At The Table for any organisation that needs help with their diversity and inclusion agenda.
Our organisation is making slow but steady progress, and we are all encouraged.
People feel more enthusiastic about D&I initiatives, and our staff networks are firing on all cylinders.Partner, Professional Services Firm, 2020

About our Voice Shout (90-minute talks)
Just thought I’d drop you a line to say how brilliant today’s Balance webinar was. The best I have attended. You did a great job. It has given me food for thought
I loved this talk so much - I really relate to a lot of this and it is SO useful to learn to manage this so early on in our careers and to learn to have confidence in my actions going forwards
The content was absolutely first class and extremely relevant. Excellent session on very important topic.
I found the session interesting and engaging, and it made me consider how I view myself within the workplace and provided real life tips that I can use in the future.
I thought this was a really engaging and thought-provoking session which I am taking a huge amount away from and hope to be able to put into practice
The one thing I keep coming back to is that they bring something fresh and external to our own thinking which helps to keep us really current.
Excellent and engaging, would absolutely recommend this company!
Another BRILLIANT session from Jayne. Please pass on to her that it was one of the best sessions we have had in terms of engagement, content, attendance and feedback to me directly post the session.
