Reference Project – Trading Company
A trading company with mostly male experts would like to hire more female experts in order to actively promote diversity within the corporate culture. In previous recruitment campaigns, the majority of applicants were male (90%).
So far the recruitment process has mostly been focused on male applicants – although unconsciously. The following questions must be clarified in advance: What attracts women to companies? Are we fulfilling these criteria? Are we willing to make some concessions? If yes, in what context and areas?
Job descriptions should cater to female applicants so they feel invited to submit their application. The job interview should cover some specific needs of female applicants, such as flexible working hours, home office possibilities or part-time employment.
Reformulation of job descriptions, to specifically attract women in the market
Structure the job interview, be sure to clarify the specific requests of female job applicants
Adaption of the recruitment process, for example, in addition to valuing technical skills within the pre-selection process, also sell the advantages of your corporate culture to female applicants or discuss the salary and also mention additional company services
