London, UK, 01.07.2019 by CEO Worldwide
Companies appear to be hiring more women into senior roles as attitudes to gender balance at senior level shift, according to new research by executive recruitment company, CEO Worldwide. The survey, targeting C-level executives and HR professionals across the US, Europe and Asia, revealed that 40% of applications for senior management roles now come from women, with well over half of businesses having hired more than one female executive in the last 12 months.
But, according to France Dequilbec, International Talent Acquisition Director for CEO Worldwide: “I have interviewed hundreds of senior women and nearly all of them have told me how difficult it is for them to access those top executive roles. As an expert in international executive recruitment, CEO Worldwide offers a dedicated recruitment platform designed to drive boardroom equality—Female Executive Search
Because “there’s a difference between saying the right thing, and doing the right thing,” continues Ms Dequilbec, Patrick Mataix in involved , founder and CEO of CEO Worldwide is convinced about the value of a more diverse leadership team: “we established Female Executive Search to demonstrate the value of diversity for the good of business, and the benefit of the global economy. Our survey (to be published) demonstrates that attitudes are moving in the right direction, but as a business dedicated to placing women executives, we feel their frustration that many boardroom doors remain stubbornly closed.
