Embracing diversity and inclusion through hiring practices
As a people business, diversity, equity and inclusion is central to how we operate at SThree. So clients seeking to improve diversity and inclusion in their hiring practices often come to us.
A medical technology client wanted to hire people with different backgrounds, expertise and viewpoints. Like many other companies, they recognised the advantages a balanced and diverse leadership team can bring to decision making and team effectiveness. However, even with SThree’s recruitment consultant team’s strong relationships with diverse candidates, finding female leaders with MedTech experience is challenging. Such candidates are simply very rare.
Our team mapped out the market to identify suitable talent across male and female candidates with the relevant experience and skills then helped our client fill multiple leadership roles.
Longer term, SThree is helping build a wider, deeper pool of diverse STEM candidates by being an advocate for greater diversity in the STEM industry’s intake.Find sought-after specialists
