For too long the construction sector has been masked with the notion, or perhaps even an excuse that their unconscious bias could not possibly be challenged… Until now!
Finding women within the sector has been a challenge, perhaps this is because they’re hiding under the egos, afraid to be a fish out of water in what is known as the world’s biggest boys club! But, you only need to look at the current ruthlessness across the sector to see the reasons why a sense of balance & harmony is required. Not just for the women, but for men too!
Continuous research has demonstrated the negative effects of an unbalanced workplace. If you assess the current statistics around construction, you will see as it stands, the sector is facing a long history and reputation of being unethical and ruthless. This is a shame when it really isn’t all of us!
So, it begs the question, how do we obtain balance? How do we restore consumer faith?
The Talent Room is a feature of becoming a Corporate Member, which allows companies within the sector to advertise their job vacancies for as little as $50/position.
Addressing the obstacle of “one size fits all”, we have built a comprehensive Job Board for businesses to access qualified women within the industry to engage for equal opportunities.
If we compare a typical advertisement on organisations like SEEK, the cost can be in excess of $500 per ad!
We have addressed all anticipated objections to engaging women in the construction sector by tackling these 2 things:
- Cost Efficiency
You couldn’t find a woman for the role?
Well now you can!
If we were to really unpack the business, what is the third objection we often hear and know from reviewing the data?
3. “Women aren’t skilled enough to fill the leadership positions the industry wants them to.”
May 2020, will see the release of a comprehensive platform focused on upskilling the women within male dominated segments, presenting the pathways, opportunities, and capacity to take your career as high as you want to. Soon, corporates will be able to closely measure the growth of their female staff ensuring they are contributing to the greater change needed within the industry.
Current research shows that women are slower to enter our industry, but very quick to leave! Not only will you have a clear perspective on the increasing skills within your minority workforce, but you will also have a greater chance of retaining the women in your workplace.
