Osoite: Webinar
Järjestäjä: International Chapter -verkosto

Is the scarcity of talent a Nordic problem? What do we mean by diversity and how to bring more diversity in the workplace?

Several studies have long shown the positive correlation between diversity of profiles and the economic and financial returns on a company. No one is questioning its undeniable competitive advantage. Yet, in some sector of activities such as Software companies/Information Technologies Services or the healthcare sector, the lack of gender diversity seems to be a systemic problem which can find its roots in early childhood education. Mentalities and Education curricula are changing but change is slow to happen.

The Nordic Tech scene has brought interesting tools to make it easy to include all qualified candidates and reach a more diverse talent pool. Innovative listed Nordic corporations are trying these tools to bring more diversity in the workplace.

Founded in 2017, Develop Diverse, a Danish AI software has landed a funding round of €2.5 million. The software has increased the number of female applicants of its customers by up to 80%. [*] The company Develop Diverse has shown positive results in the fight against unconscious bias, as companies such as Vestas and Danske Bank recruit more diverse candidates. **

Danske Bank Nordic filiales, including Finland, are also using Develop Diverse software.
