SET workplace cultures: Good practice guide

Date Published: 6 December 2009

This is the tenth UKRC Good Practice Guide on SET Workplace Cultures: Making a Positive Impact. Organisational cultures have been identified as key factors in why women do not participate and progress in Science, Engineering and Technology (SET). Understanding the barriers and creating potential solutions needed to support more women into SET positions will make a significant positive impact in an organisation’s ability to recruit and retain the best talent. Investigating how workplace culture affects employees and helps or hinders the recruitment and retention of women in this area of business is vital and will, of course, have a positive impact on business. This guide features comprehensive examples of leading SET companies that use a range of approaches to change their organisational culture for the benefit of the whole workforce.
