Suki Sandhu, Founder & CEO of Audeliss, has been named Recruiter’s Most Inspiring Recruitment Leader at this year’s Investing In Talent Awards.

This is a great honour for Suki who has dedicated his professional and personal life to creating a more inclusive and equal world.

Suki commented on his award, “I’m thrilled to be honoured with this award. I genuinely spend every day trying to be a good role model and inspire change. My sole purpose is to change the status quo and create more diverse boardrooms. I launched both Audeliss and OUTstanding with a view to make a difference and I’m very proud to be recognised for what my teams and I have achieved. I’m constantly looking at new ways to level the playing field in business and I’ll never stop until the business world shows a truly diverse landscape with genuine inclusion.”

In 2011 Suki founded Audeliss, a niche boutique executive recruitment company founded on the core principles of diversity, integrity and quality. He’s proud that 65% of the candidates appointed into senior roles have been diverse.

Suki has created a workplace where everyone understands, and is motivated by, the company purpose: to level the playing field for BAME (black, Asian and minority ethnic), LGBT+ and women at work. Audeliss is itself a diverse employer, with a 100% diverse team made up of women, BAME and LGBT+ staff, and staff of all ages.

Additionally, in 2013 Suki founded OUTstanding, a membership organisation, to support the diversification of the boardroom and create more visible senior LGBT+ role models to inspire the next generation of leaders.  In partnership with The Financial Times, OUTstanding now produces the acclaimed LGBT+ Executive Top100 list, Ally Top50 list and LGBT+ Future Leaders Top50 list each year.

In 2016, Suki launched the EMpower ethnic minority leaders lists. They are now published annually, in partnership with the Financial Times, showcasing the top 100 BAME Business Leaders and top 30 BAME Future Leaders in the UK, Ireland, United States and Canada.

This year, Suki launched the FT & HERoes Champions of Women in Business lists, to celebrate those driving gender equality in business and progressing the female talent pipeline. With a judging panel including Helena Morrissey, Founder of the 30% Club, the inaugural lists were published in the FT this September.

Suki is also an active supporter of existing industry-wide initiatives. He’s a Stonewall Ambassador and passionately supports charities through donating a percentage of profits to StandUp Foundation and Smartworks.

Well done Suki on this great achievement.
