There is a clear consensus that diversity is good for business. The case for establishing a truly diverse workforce becomes increasingly compelling each year, not just as a moral obligation, but with findings showcasing clear financial benefits as a result of innovation. A key part of heralding a diverse workforce is committing to female hiring and retention initiatives – at IRG, it is our priority to support our clients to make successful female hiring a reality.
A large proportion of businesses are now articulating their gender workforce targets, and more specifically, the need to increase the number of women holding leadership positions.
With all of this in mind, our mission as an Executive Search firm becomes distinctly clearer. It is not only our duty to prioritise and acknowledge the importance of female diversity hiring for our clients, but to ensure this is applied within our own organisation internally.
Our success in this space includes:
- Co-hosted an International Women’s Day event with a world leading strategy consulting firm
- Placed female Partners, now country and/or industry leaders with a global strategy firm
- Completed diversity hiring project with a top 3 global advertising agency
- Conducted an extensive female diversity research project for HVAMC firm to identify every female Partner in EMEA and provided a market map with related market insight
