Leading recruitment software provider, iCIMS, releases report on gender equality in the workplace
MATAWAN, N.J. [May 24, 2017] – U.S. companies still struggle with gender issues, including the pay gap, parental leave policies, hiring women in science, technology, engineering and mathematic (STEM) industries and promoting women to C-level positions according to a new report from iCIMS, Inc., a leading provider of cloud-based talent acquisition solutions.
“Our research finds that 73% of young working women aspire to be in senior leadership roles, but on average only 32% of high-level leaders are women,” said Susan Vitale, chief marketing officer at iCIMS. “This report dives into the specific ways companies still struggle with gender issues and offers insight from top companies that are committed to gender diversity and helping women grow in their careers.”
Adecco, an enterprise employer and iCIMS customer, was included in the report due to its strength in gender equality. Recognized as a top company for executive women by the National Association for Female Leadership, Adecco attributes the company’s success to its sturdy bench of female talent — nearly 70% of their senior managers are women and more than 70% of all employees are women.
“We are proud celebrators of women in the workplace, and it’s deeply embedded in our company culture,” said Joyce Russell, president at Adecco. “Our CEO for One Month initiative offers one outstanding person the internship of a lifetime, where he or she will shadow our executives for a month to learn the ins and outs of leading a Fortune 500 company. This year, more than 20,000 candidates applied to become our U.S. 2017 CEO for One Month. What a great way to build a pipeline of talent and further develop our company culture as a place where leadership is valued across all levels of the organization.”
