COMPANY BOSSES PLEDGE TO RECRUIT MORE BLACK STAFF. In an open letter, leaders of 40 firms urged other firms to do the same, saying “what gets measured, gets done”. The chair of the Equality and Human Rights commission has told the BBC that firms should set targets to recruit more people of colour to senior posts. David Isaac said firms needed to “play their part” in increasing diversity. He said the murder of George Floyd in the US had highlighted the “unequal outcomes for people of colour”.
