March 22, 2019 Rebecca Henderson

The increasing number of female candidates in the workforce are changing the game. Not only are they looking for pay equity, but they’re also interested in working for companies with a higher purpose. That includes championing diversity, inclusion and gender equality.
 
But it’s not enough to just talk about it. Employers must clearly demonstrate the value they put on the hiring and advancement of women and people of color through their workplace programs and policies. “One of the ways we demonstrate our dedication at Randstad Sourceright is through the mentorship programs we offer,” says CEO Rebecca Henderson. “We know that a commitment to diversity ... boosts both performance and innovation.”
 
Work-life balance is also an especially important factor for women deciding where to work. Female employees want to know that they are empowered to enjoy full and successful lives – without experiencing guilt or fear about their family and career decisions.
