Women in the workplace

Today 8 March 2018 being International Women’s day is a great day to think about why hiring more women in the workplace is a great idea.

 

CEOs across the globe are focused on talent diversity and the inclusion of women managers. Large organizations are actively trying to recruit more women and organizations said they have aligned their diversity and recruitment strategies.

 

As per a report from Pwc, more and more CEOs regard talent diversity and inclusion as vital to their organisation’s ability to drive innovation and gain competitive advantage. And as businesses across the world inject greater urgency into their gender diversity efforts, there is an intensifying focus on hiring female talent. In fact, 78% of large organisations are actively seeking to hire more women – especially into more experienced and senior level positions.

 

 

 

According to research from McKinsey & Company, published in January 2018, gender diversity on executive teams is strongly correlated with profitability and value creation.

 

As per Sonru, The paper, “Case for Investing in Women” by the Anita Borg institute outlines the huge difference that women make in the workforce, especially when they’re in leadership or senior roles.

 

Why companies should hire more women:

 

  1. An economist from Carnegie Mellon found that teams that included at least one female member had a collectively higher IQ than teams that had just men.
  2. When Fortune 500 companies had at least three female directors, several key factors increased: The return on invested capital jumped over 66%, return on sales went up 42%, and return on equity increased by 53%.
  3. Gallup found that companies with more diversity on staff have a 22% lower turnover rate, and if an organisation has a more inclusive culture that embraces women, it’s easier to recruit a more diverse staff.
  4. A 2012 study on women’s participation in IT patents found that patents with mixed gender teams were cited 30% to 40% more than similar patents with all-male teams.
  5. Studies in 17 different countries in all different industries found that across the board, having a larger number of women on a team accounts for greater psychological safety, team confidence, group experimentation, and team efficiency.

 

 

For companies to hire more women in top management, they need to:

 

  1. Create a culture of open and constructive feedback.
  2. Invite women leaders to review and revamp processes and systems.
  3. Acknowledge the unique qualities both genders bring to the workplace.

 

At Datum Recruitment Services, we believe strongly in inclusive recruitment and appreciate our female team members. Our clients also believe hiring women is good for business and company’s growth and we see the trend of hiring more women is progressively growing.

 

This Financial Year, we have seen a growth of 23.6% in hiring for women candidates for our international clients across various geographies, roles and sectors.

Boom time for African start ups

The number of tech starts ups that received funding has increase from 125 in 2015 to 146 in 2016 and 159 in 2017; this means Investor confidence and willingness to back African tech ventures is increasing.

 

The total funding raised by these companies – US$195,060,845 – also marks a 51% rise on the previous year’s figures, taking investment into African start-ups to an all-time record high. This proves that the speculation on African tech starts ups is real and not just hype and is impacting all aspects of daily life and service delivery.

 

Tech starts up are coming in all fields from healthcare to home cleaning; but it is the fintech companies that received the best funding as seen since last 3 years. A few other sectors also saw success in 2017. Ecommerce for example grew 350% on the previous year to collect over US$16 million in investment over the course of the year.

 

Agriculture and farming being big in Africa, there has been investment in agri-tech space, with growth of 203% in 2017. Agri-tech and e-health being are also interesting for investors due to the scope and need  of innovative new solutions, and the substantial impact element of ventures operating in these areas, these investments offer both sizeable returns and impact.

 

South Africa, Nigeria and Kenya continued to solidify their position as the top three investment destinations in Africa, but there was also interest in Egypt, Ghana, Uganda and Morocco.

 

Africa’s tech ecosystem is bound to create a trend which will continue to develop as the continent carries on presenting high quality innovations and businesses, tackling Africa’s challenges, but also scalable across the world.

 

Talent is a top priority for all start-up founders and executives. Starts up need to hire recruitment agencies with executive search teams who know the hiring needs of an entrepreneurial venture. Start-ups should recruit highly motivated, self-starting, hardworking candidates, quick thinking candidates with good execution skills who share a common vision and are interested in a job in a start-up.
