Achievement marks improvements for gender equality
New York, NY – The Stevie Awards for Great Employers recognize the world’s best employers and the human resources professionals, teams, achievements and HR-related products and suppliers who help to create and drive great places to work. Concentrix was recognized in the category “Achievement to Diversity” for the third year in a row.
Concentrix grew exponentially over the past few years to 225,000 staff in 275 locations across 40 countries. India is one of the largest Concentrix locations and also has one of the highest rates for female unemployment. The hiring and recruiting policy in India was restructured to meet immediate and future staffing need while contributing to the local community and impacting India’s female unemployment.
Our award-winning strategy improved the ratio of women hired with a three-pronged approach. Community outreach educated underprivileged girls and women which led to an increased talent pool for recruiters and an attention to causes of attrition made the workplace more welcoming. Our Network of Women (NOW) initiatives support engagement and retention through educating and empowering women, investing in their future and accelerating careers. These measures led to Concentrix surpassing its goal and achieving growth in the female staff population with a below 5% attrition rate.
