We asked four participants from IdentiFy, our women in leadership programme, to share some of the things they’ve taken away from the programme to help them progress their career.
Working in a meritocratic environment was on top of Mike Banfield’s list when he was looking to start his career. 16 years later, he found exactly that at SThree, and advanced from a trainee to a director for our brand Huxley in Benelux and France.
Thanks to the support and flexibility offered at SThree, employees don’t need to choose between their career and having a family. We spoke with Kimberley Roe, a Principal Consultant in London who’s worked at Huxley, part of the SThree Group, for 10 years to find out more about her experience of maternity leave and returning to work.
Today we join the world in celebrating International Women’s Day. This year’s theme is #BeBoldForChange; the idea behind this is to encourage individuals and organisations to share what bold actions they have taken or are planning to take to help progress gender parity around the world.
As part of our commitment to empower our people, we want to give them a voice and provide them with a platform to share their thoughts and celebrate their achievements. This is why we decided to feature successful women within our business and share their stories via Instagram, using the hashtag #WednesdayWoman.
It’s with great pleasure that we announce that we were awarded the APSCo Award for Excellence for Diversity and Inclusion. We are honoured to have won this prestigious industry award recognising our commitment to creating a positive and inclusive work environment, where diverse opinions and perspectives are valued and a true meritocracy exists.
Our CEO Gary Elden was recently honoured by the Queen with an Officer for the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (OBE) in recognition of his services to ‘Diversity in Business’. We asked him why he is so passionate about inclusion and why he thinks there’s still a lot to be done.
Have you ever considered working and living in Brussels? Our Belgium colleagues, many of whom are travelling from Ghent, Liege and Antwerp to work in the Belgian capital, are full of praise for their city and its unique charms, diversity, excellent food and rich cultural life.
Earlier this week, our team from SThree brand Real Life Sciences in Singapore met for their bi-annual Vision Meeting to discuss their achievements of the previous six months and share their ideas and targets for the year ahead; only this year it turned out to be a quite different kind of event.
In 1990 Gary Elden began his career as a trainee recruitment consultant for an IT recruiter called Computer Futures. Fast-forward 26 years and Gary is CEO of SThree – the parent company of Computer Futures (and a further eight specialist brands).
