Our client, an asset-management platform, was struggling with low gender ratios and poor retention of diverse candidates. They wanted to expand diversity in leadership as well as on their engineering teams.
Meytier advised this Asset Manager on their hiring process and how to best hire for diverse candidates. Instead of hiring one woman for several teams, we clustered new hires so no one had the experience of "onlyness" that so often leads to low retention. We used our platform, affinity group network, and several search tools to market jobs to mid-level and junior women.
We helped market their jobs to a more diverse audience on our platform and social media pages. We expanded the amount of diverse candidates in early career by 5%, mid-management by 15%, and senior leadership by 20% over a course of five months.
