WOMEN’S WORKPLACE INITIATIVE

Increasing the participation of women in the workplace, has a positive impact on business, social and economic growth.  We are championing the value women bring, through our Women’s Workplace initiatives.

Invest Programme

To strengthen the workplace for women, our Invest programme provides an opportunity for organisations to build an engaged female workforce, whilst attracting women returning and restarting their career. Increasing the participation of women in work, is key to the UK’s and Irelands’ business recovery, with our programme providing a creative solution, for those organisations that need to act. Delivered over a 3- or 6-month period, we connect with your female workforce and you connect with ours, through a structured internal communication, talent, and attraction strategy.

CEO&blackME

Our CEO@blackME sponsorship programme, is focused on accelerating the career growth of aspiring BAME females. It is clear the value a C suite BAME female could bring, but we know that attracting this community is challenging. Our sponsorship programme enables us to profile those high achievers, by connecting them to industry leaders. The programme offers BAME females’ access to an executive network, senior level profiling and an industry CEO champion.

WOMEN RETURNING TO WORK

A unique talent pool of highly skilled women, looking to return and restart their professional career. Having helped more than 2000 women return to work, we know first-hand the value a returner brings. Our returnship programmes enable you to bridge the recruitment gap, helping you fill these roles, by offering professionally paid short-term employment contracts, typically of 3-6 months, with a strong possibility of an ongoing role at the end of the programme.
