The Co-op

Top Tips from Co-op

  • Understand starting points and monitor so
    can see gaps and trends (e.g. low success rate among female applicants in Group IT)
  • Get external help where needed
  • Collaborate with – and learn from – other WISE members
  • Get senior buy-in and
    treat this like any other
    business project.

“Working with Textio has helped us achieve tangible results by regulating the use of gender coded language in our job adverts. There’s still lots of work to do though. And next we’re planning to use data to help our hiring managers understand how extensive lists of essential and desirable criteria often lead to male dominated shortlists.”

Matt Eyre, Candidate Marketing Manager, Co-op.
