As the demand for skilled employees grows ever more critical, there has been a power shift away from unsympathetic employers and a rejection of inflexible working conditions. WORK180 is a global jobs network that operates at the forefront of this new workplace revolution.
Our function is twofold.
As an advocate for working women, we provide job applicants with a transparent directory of endorsed employers who support diversity, inclusion and equality. We share information around pay equity, flexible working, paid parental leave, equal opportunities and a range of other important criteria.
Before an employer comes on board, we put them through a pre-screening process and on average, about 80% of companies who apply to work with us, pass our criteria.
Within the criteria process, we also take into account initiatives that focus on age, ability, ethnicity and sexual orientation. The information we uncover isn’t available anywhere else, but we make it public on our website so that candidates know exactly what to expect before applying for a job.
We also work with employers to improve and develop workforce participation. Majority of the companies who don’t initially pass the criteria, return to us after improving. We share best practice, offer strategic advice and provide a highly active jobs board where businesses can connect with the talented people in our network.
The HR Health Check tool is just one way we help companies benchmark their employee benefits and make improvements that future-proof their business.
As well, our vast audience delivers exceptional social engagement, allowing us to widely promote endorsed employees and to tell the story of their diversity journey. Not everyone can match the standards set by the most progressive employers. But there’s always something that can be done to enrich workplace culture and invite a broader and more diverse knowledge base to an organisation.
There’s a long way to go in the fight for better working conditions, but the change we’re seeing is astounding. Corporations such as Microsoft, BHP and AustralianSuper are proving that no business is too big to make the transition. Conversely, start-ups like Buildkite and FluroSat show that no one is too small.
It really is an exciting time for workplace equality, and we’re just getting started.
Our mission (hopefully yours too)
To finally put an end to workplace discrimination, so that everyone is valued equally and businesses can enjoy the benefits of a truly diverse workforce.
