Ensuring equal representation of female talent in the workplace can positively affect your entire organization.
- Increase your talent pool – if you’re not attracting a wider candidate audience and missing out on women from all walks of life, you could be losing out on talent, skills, expertise that could truly enhance your business.
- Mix up those viewpoints – adding women to your team can bring a new perspective – personal and professional experiences, a fresh approach, new ideas, and consideration from a different angle – all needed to encourage and shape business growth.
- Improved employer brand – enhance your reputation by developing your hiring outreach. Create female-friendly hiring and workplace programs to ensure you support women in the workplace – attraction and retention are equally important.
- As we said, gender parity is good for business. A study conducted by Forbes found that companies and nonprofits that actively support gender equality tend to make better business decisions —and ultimately make more money. Research showed that inclusive teams make better business decisions up to 87% of the time and that teams with less diversity are more likely to make poor choices for their companies.
Having an inclusive workplace is a powerful recruiting tool – and we can help with that if you’re an employer looking to connect with a broader talent pool to support your business.
