We turn stories of adversity into sustainable campaigns of hope.

Audrey Hepburn was an award-winning and era-defining actor. Breakfast at Tiffany’s is etched into film and fashion culture 60 years after it was made.

Less well known is Hepburn’s commitment to humanitarian work, particularly supporting children.

Hepburn contributed to UNICEF’s work from her mid-20s until she died aged 64.

Shortly before dying she was appointed a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador.

Developing your social values

Translating organisational values, expertise and policies into an actionable Social Value Mission.

Communities, customers and employees are now demanding more from both public and private sector organisations.

Whether these are environmental or socio-economic factors, businesses and local authorities are rightly being urged to improve the impact on their surroundings.

Through empathetic collaboration with your organisation, Spectra helps to define your corporate social responsibility policy (CSR) and improve your social mobility.

Working with you, we create and deliver a social value mission that fits with your industry, company culture and objectives – to enable your business to thrive.

Facilitating public and private sector partnerships

Enabling a stronger community commitment by facilitating partnerships with relevant organisations.

Spectra examines your supply chain and connects you to the optimum profile partner for your organisation’s objectives, ensuring cultural alignment to your company values.

These strengthened partnerships can unlock your organisation’s potential to enable significant economic growth while maximising the delivery of your social equity programme.

Recruitment and retention

Building agile and tailored recruitment and retention processes for your organisation.

Having qualifications alone does not necessarily provide a candidate with the best start on their employment journey.

Through Spectra’s Finishing School, we create an environment where each candidate is prepared for the organisation to which s/he applies for. Not just with a qualification but a real sense of value, self-worth and realistic preparation for work.

This Finishing School approach enables Spectra to not only provide the niche skill set for a particular role but also the whole personality based on the recruiter’s culture and work environment.

Delivery of the training is an adaptive, real-life learning environment where the learner is interviewed, trained and assessed with your company’s culture in mind.

Training

Training your teams to create inclusive environments and ensure the best chance of employee retention.

Spectra creates tailored training based on your organisation’s specific requirements.

From strategic workshop facilitation for decision-makers, ‘train-the-trainer’ sessions to hands-on people development.

Spectra and our partners have particular expertise in training teams to create Psychologically Informed Environments (P.I.E), which are designed to be inclusive for staff with complex needs; and in training managers to mentor both junior employees from diverse backgrounds or young people outside of the organisation.

Training at all levels is delivered with an empathetic approach to enable maximum employee engagement and successful change management.

Diversity and inclusion programmes

Improving outcomes for under-served communities, and creating inclusive environments, is a long-term commitment.

Rosa Parks

We design and deliver innovative programmes that enable organisations and education institutions to be more diverse and inclusive at all levels.

Our founders have been working with under-served communities and racial minorities, across the UK for over 20 years.

Our 381 Programme is Spectra’s response to the Black Lives Matter movement and racial empathy: it’s our ambition to increase gender and racial equity, by facilitating often difficult conversation on inclusion in professional settings.

We drive real change and improve outcomes for marginalised groups by conducting organisational mapping, defining personal experiences and developing applied solutions.

(381 represents your long term collective commitment and the 381 days of the 1955-56 Montgomery Bus Boycott)

Creating new ventures

Creating new commercial ventures that are underpinned by mutual social values.

From identifying a suitable partnership or defining the investment model and governance structure – to steering the cultural shift that inevitably follows a merger or acquisition.

Spectra provides alignment during a challenging period of transition.

We engage empathetically with your organisations to unite stakeholders with a common vision, mission and values. Ensuring the culture change is baked in from the ground up, across all processes, policies and practices.
