Phaidon International's Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Report Examines the Perceptions of DE&I in Technology.

As an award-winning technology talent partner under the Phaidon International brand, clients often ask us how to improve Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DE&I) in their workplace so they can attract, hire, and retain top talent with diverse experiences and viewpoints.  

To provide data-backed insights, we have surveyed both employees and employers from our database to understand their perspectives on company culture, discrimination, development opportunities, and DE&I training and resources at their workplace to uncover trends, disparities, and areas in need of improvement. 

The results can be found in Phaidon International's DE&I report, which explores overall trends across their six specialist brands, plus a breakdown of results for Glocomms, delving into DE&I in the technology industry.

​Findings from our survey to technology employers include:

71%

of USA-based employers said they made provisions for diverse candidates throughout their hiring process, but only

53%

of Europe-based employers said the same.

​In addition, technology was the most heavily male-dominated industry across all of Phaidon International's surveyed industries, and saw some of the biggest disparities in perspectives between genders among industry employees. Only:

28%

of female employees working in technology felt that their employer provided equal professional growth opportunities, compared to

72%

of male respondents.

Discover the full views of both employers and employees in the technology industry and uncover new areas of focus for your DE&I strategy, helping you to improve hiring, retention, and DE&I policies based on your goals, resources, and the needs of your employees. Along with our survey findings, this exclusive report also includes: 

  • How good DE&I workplace practices benefit both employers and employees 

  • The biggest DE&I challenges employers face

  • Key takeaways for employers and employees

  • DE&I resources for your region 

Giancarlo Hirsch, Managing Director at Glocomms, gives insights into the development of DE&I's importance in recent years:

"Over the last couple of years, we’ve seen a huge increase in clients wanting to target diverse candidates in their searches. Technology has grown into a very homogenized workforce, and leadership in particular is not very diverse. This greatly contributes to a client's ability to attract and retain top talent. We’ve built up a great reputation in the industry as a go-to talent partner for candidates coming from underrepresented groups, and our clients share great feedback attesting to the access to diverse talent they get by partnering with us."
