Tech firm urges sector to get creative with recruitment to improve gender diversity
A LONDON tech firm is urging the technology sector to think creatively when recruiting or risk missing out on the many benefits of a gender diverse workforce.
WM Reply, which builds world-class intranets and business solutions, believes a creative approach to talent acquisition is the solution for an industry with a well-publicised poor representation of females. Latest figures give the percentage of women employed varying from around 25% to as low as 17%, depending on the exact focus of surveys and reports.
Richard Acreman, Partner at WM Reply, said: “As the head of a tech company, I believe we all have a responsibility to improve the level of diversity within the sector. A creative recruitment strategy is key to this.”
