Rankings: Diversity

In this category we consider projects to improve diversity in the workforce, and those that make products and services more accessible

By Mihail Gyurev

Excellence Rankings 2022

The Excellence Rankings celebrate the greatest achievements and innovations in the industry. The programme provides a platform to recognise the people and companies that are driving change.

Our programme is designed to highlight excellence within the sector by looking at a range of corporate activities including deals, business projects and company initiatives, both internal and in the community.

What is Diversity?

Diversity is a subject that should be at the forefront of every modern company’s recruitment strategy and should not be considered as simply an exercise in virtue signalling. The more diverse a workforce, the more representative it is of wider society, which brings clear benefits to any corporation attempting to gain greater insight into the views of its customer base. In addition, more diverse companies have greater appeal to candidates in the jobs market, increasing a company’s chances of hiring the best talent.

In this category we consider any internal company project to improve diversity in the workforce, this can include changes to hiring policies; graduate and apprenticeship schemes; work groups and societies; and subconscious bias training. In addition we look at external company policies and practices aimed at making their products and services more accessible and inclusive.

Several key themes stand out when looking at the Diversity topic in relation to the manufacture and use of medical devices.

The most notable is the increased use of data, with researchers and companies looking at the vast array of information collected on modern devices and finding new avenues of research. A notable example is the American fitness device company, Fitbit, that has made its devices available to researchers with the expressed purpose of improving equality research.

Another data trend that has been developing for a while now is the use of digital health management devices to tackle medical issues disproportionately affecting specific racial and socioeconomic groups.

The research period has also seen an increase in research and development projects related to diagnostic device development with a view to improving diversity and inclusion.
