Pakt is a growing European ecosystem of production companies dedicated to delivering high quality film and photographic content for global brands and international ad agencies.
Una Collective received the mandate from Pakt to assess their current Company Culture which will provide an insight into the status of diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging and how this is perceived by the employees.
Providing Pakt with a baseline to work with in answering your overarching DEI objective: How to attract, hire and retain (cultural diverse) talent?
We will answer this question in the next phase.
The Una Collective DEIB process spans across three actionable tiers: awareness, activation, and accountability.
From February - May 2022 Una Collective executed phase 1, awareness, for Pakt by assessing the current sentiment, experience and commitment of Pakt staff and leadership. To do this Una Collective deployed her in-house developed surveys, Culture Pulse and Leadership Pulse while also interviewing 10 selected Pakt employees.
On this page Pakt can find the DEIB Report, as well as the full Culture Pulse and Leadership Pulse Reports. Quotes from the interviews have been used throughout all reports to strengthen the numbers with actual lived experiences.
The overall conclusion: Pakt has a strong culture where the heart is in the right place, but for a truly DEIB culture policies, actions, learning & development is the next step.
The Key Trends
Pakt approached Una Collective inquiring for ways to address a desire to have a more diverse staff, specifically addressing an underrepresentation in the number of employees from historically marginalised groups in their local societies.
As Pakt continues to expand its business through an M&A approach, executives are aware of the need to grow its DEI strategy addressing cultural obstacles to optimal diversity, inclusion and equity in the workplace and thereby strengthening their employer brand. Which will make them more attractive to future, diverse employees, an in-demand candidate pool.
While analysing your leaders’ and employee’s quantitative and qualitative feedback, we discovered seven significant themes Pakt should consider. These workplace, culture trends are positively or negatively impacting DEI efforts and also have the most room for growth.
The Una Collective Culture Pulse is a dedicated employee survey focussed on the themes of diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging.
The Pulse covers 7 categories and 40 traits.
In case of Pakt the survey was deployed for 6 weeks and open to all employees on staff (not the freelancers).
In the end 80 people filled out the survey.
