Square One Resources are delighted to have joined the ‘Women in Recruitment’ initiative, a positive driving force in the recruitment industry that guides businesses towards attracting, developing and retaining female talent and ensuring diversity is on the board agenda. Women in Recruitment supports females in the industry with unique development tools, together with mentoring and networking opportunities that strive to reinforce successful and sustainable careers. This initiative headed up by our UK Managing Director, Adam Breacher and HR Assistant, Jen Greaves.
Our aim is to communicate the business opportunities associated with gender equality and establish the recruitment profession as a brand of excellence in diversity. The ethos of Women in Recruitment resonates with Square One Resources; we do our best to live by our motto #OneSquareOne, we believe in transparency and fairness that allows all employees to develop their careers equally regardless of their gender. With the help of Women in Recruitment, we are striving to significantly improve the retention of high-calibre female talent.
Square One’s workforce consists of 35% of females within the Sales and Operations functions. 45% of our management and seniors are females. Square One Resources recognises the broad and valuable skillsets of our employees, and alongside our established brand of 23 years, we aim to support and develop these, enabling our teams to grow with the company and reach their professional goals. Our female staff retention is something that we are proud of but always striving to improve, and we welcome the experience to mentor and support new female staff within the recruitment industry.
