What do current members say about membership?

“Being an active member has benefited Enterprise in various ways, from being able to benchmark process and data with other member organisations, partner on joint ventures and help us to establish best practice in the area of diversity.”

"I have found the sector focus group to be a very useful arena for getting to know other organisations in my sector and learning about what best practice looks like. Even after years of attending I remain surprised by how open and collaborative the discussions are despite the fact that we are also close competitors."

Pinsent Masons


“In order to get buy in from the Exec team and key stakeholders, I had to produce and present a business case that had to include sound data and benchmarking information. The team were fantastic in providing  me with well thought out and easily accessible data, as well as in hosting thought provoking events and answering my questions in person. Without their support I would not have felt confident in the data and thinking behind my business case when presenting to the NR Exec team."
