Our main objective of Investigo Network (IN) is to add value to our external network through recruitment thought-leadership content and inspired networking events. Over the course of 2018 we hosted an array of Investigo Network events, welcoming well over 400 clients and candidates to join us to learn more about topics such as Inclusive Recruitment, Workplace Mental Health, Diversity Quotas and Employee Wellbeing. At these events we bring you industry experts to both inspire and give practical advice on how businesses can progress with their own Diversity and Inclusion journey. The topic is vast, so we believe the information we can offer to support the cause of D&I is a true value add to both our clients and candidates.
If you would like to join our next D&I event, please speak to your Investigo contact about upcoming dates and topics.
Previous D&I events include:

With one in four people experiencing mental health problems each year, it’s time we all started to talk more about mental health and what better place to start than in the workplace?
