Promoting and Uplifting a Culture that Respects and Commemorates Diversity and Inclusivity
Diversity is a crucial aspect of workforces, and the business always strives to acknowledge and respect the distinct talents and backgrounds of our staff. We are equally determined to nurture an inclusive work environment.
Our sixth and seventh rounds of the Giveback Program were successfully launched this year. This initiative offers financial support to non-profit organizations, focused on empowering individuals of color to pursue a career in the IT industry. We invited our clients to take part in the selection of organizations for us to donate to. Thanks to the mid-year campaign in 2023, we were thrilled to have made a positive impact on over 1,500 people.
We are thrilled to convey the news of our achievement, as the Program clinched a Bronze in the Corporate Social Responsibility Program of the Year category at the prestigious 20th annual American Business Awards, hosted by the esteemed Stevie Awards organization in 2023.
At Works, we are dedicated to boosting women’s participation in STEM industries. In a bid to raise awareness of the issue of gender imbalance in the tech sector, we published our findings in our report titled ‘Women in Tech 2023: A Works Report’. The report exposed a 400% increase in female applicants over the previous six years. We are well aware that women remain underrepresented in the IT field and seek to make our results accessible to the general public, via Statista.
Our capacity to source employees globally at Works is attributed to our complete remote working environment. We continue to experience an overwhelming response, with roughly 2 million applications received this year, as in previous years, from enthusiastic candidates eager to join our expanding crew.
