That HR Podcast episode 12: Meet #SallyInHR

Racial microaggressions are a pervasive part of many modern workplaces – so how can HR challenge them?

In this episode, Emily meets activist and creator of #SallyInHR Kelechi Okafor, to talk about racial microaggressions in the workplace, and the importance of educated diversity and inclusion. Plus, Lauren takes a roadtrip to Birmingham to find out whether Britain is due a pay rise – and Tim Pointer has stern words for recruiters who don’t follow up.
