At Impellam Group, we’re changing businesses by breaking stereotypes and striving to improve diversity, equity and inclusion. Comensura has been partnering with New Futures Network and prisons to help prisoners reintegrate into society and employment.
Recently, they hosted a Prison Collaboration Day at our Luton office, with Prison Employment Leads from HMP Drake Hall, Featherstone and Chelmsford, because members of our leadership team - Hoa Ngo, Simon Blockley, Joscelin Conrad and Lianne Watkinson - are part of their Employment Advisory Boards.
The day was designed to share knowledge, with guests learning from Impellam subject matter experts and in turn, our guests hosted a lunch and learn sharing the great work they are leading which is designed to help prisoners into meaningful work and reduce reoffending.
In addition, our business resource group IMWomxn organised clothing donations for the women at Drake Hall to wear during interviews to help build confidence.
