For the tenth episode of Reworked we caught up with Gemma Lloyd, founder of the recruitment app Work180, which has recently landed in the UK.
Equality, diversity and inclusion often appear in organisational values and strategy. Work180 helps job seekers know before they apply which organisations walk their talk.
The Work180 app advertises the job roles of companies that have already been vetted on their equality-supporting practices. Businesses are assessed on their maternity/paternity leave and flexible working policies, their gender pay gap reporting, and a host of other key criteria. Job seekers can then be confident that the organisation they are applying to work with has an inclusive workplace culture.
The app has already been a great success in Australia, where it receives 90,000 job searches a month, and it will reach New York and San Francisco very soon. Gemma draws interesting comparisons of attitudes towards diversity and inclusion between the UK and Australia. With gender equality and the gender pay gap being on the forefront of public agenda this year in the UK, she thinks the app will have an even greater impact here.
