Taking Proactive Steps to Engage & Retain Women
At a time when 1 in 4 women are considering leaving the workforce due to Covid, a global tech manufacturer wanted to make sure its women felt supported, especially highly valuable employees who also represent a more at-risk population for leaving.
The firm took action by selecting the Aurora digital platform from reacHIRE to ensure talented women receive the community they need and reinforce that the company is invested in their long-term success.
“When you’re reading sobering statistics, it’s a crucial reminder to ask how you can ensure your company culture is best supporting inclusion and fostering development for high potential yet at-risk talent pools,” related the firm’s Talent Development Partner and Head of Diversity & Inclusion.
Fast and Seamless Deployment
Designed as a scalable, virtual platform, Aurora provides a team-based approach to building community and engagement while helping companies improve retention. Once the first team of women was selected, the Aurora program was up and running in seven days. Once launched the team met collectively once per month, led by an Aurora Certified Guide, a seasoned executive who helps the team navigate the Aurora curriculum while they build trust and community. The Aurora Guide also serves as a sounding board for career advice and skill building during 1:1 meetings with each cohort member.
Key Results Indicate Growth, Loyalty & Engagement
Within six short months, the company managers noticed improved leadership skills and stronger resilience from employees in the Aurora program, leading them to expand Aurora’s footprint within the organization. Positive feedback on the Aurora program came from management and participants alike.
