DIVERSITY

As a firm regulated by the SRA, we are required to collect, report and publish workforce diversity data about the diversity make-up of our workforce.

Cocks Lloyd are committed to recruiting, retaining and developing a workforce that reflects at all levels the diverse communities that we serve.
It is important that we monitor and analyse diversity information so that we can ensure that our HR processes are fair, transparent, promote equality of opportunity for all staff, and do not have an adverse impact on any particular group.
