ARE YOU AN EMPLOYER WHO IS STRUGGLING TO ATTRACT FEMALE TALENT?
In the ASX200, less than 5% of CEOs and only 25.3% of Board Directors are women. WGEA report only 35.3% of managers in the ASX200 companies are women.
The Australian labour market is highly gender-segregated by industry and occupation. This restricts occupational choices for women (and men). The result is lost profitability, reduced productivity and innovation, and labour market distortion.
Due to the targeted nature of their jobs board, consumer brands use DCC Jobs as it not only attracts talented female candidates, but drives consumer support by demonstrating the company’s focus on supporting women.
MANY COMPANIES HAVE SET GENDER DIVERSITY TARGETS FOR THEIR LEADERSHIP AND WORKFORCE.
Why? Because of evidence around improved profitability. Companies benefit when they appropriately represent their customer base. Research from the Peterson Institute of International Economics shows that going from having no women in corporate leadership to a 30% female share is associated with a 15% increase in profitability for a typical firm.
The business case for gender equality clearly demonstrates the positive impacts of a gender diverse workforce. It improves productivity, economic growth, organisational reputation and increases organisational performance, impacting the ability of companies to attract and retain talent. But as a woman looking for a supportive employer, it is hard to know which organisations have truly committed to gender diversity and inclusion. DCC Jobs makes the search for a supportive employer simple and painless.

FEMALE JOB SEEKERS TRUST THAT DCC ARE ADVERTISING JOBS WITH THE BEST EMPLOYERS FOR WOMEN.
Who can join DCC Jobs? The good news is that Employers of Choice for Gender Equality (EOCGE) as qualified by the Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA) are exempt from completing the application process with DCC Jobs.
Other organisations must undertake a pre-screening process to ensure they qualify and meet DCC Jobs’ criteria as a supportive workplace for women.
DCC Jobs’ best employers publish their organisation’s policies on the company’s website. This includes policies on paid parental leave, pay equity, flexible working arrangements, as well as their employee engagement scores plus much more. This information is not publicly listed elsewhere and is an essential tool for job seekers to assess preferred employers.
DCC Jobs reaches female job seekers through traditional and digital marketing, niche events and partnerships with Industry Associations and Not-for-profits. Due to their targeted approach, 50% of candidates applying for roles through DCC Jobs are shortlisted, and 25% of candidates are hired.
Many companies use expert solutions provided by consulting and advisory firms to advance gender equality. However, the offering of gender equality services tends to be fragmented.
We are working to identify and promote a portfolio of gender equality services from consulting organisations who meet Femeconomy’s criteria. The criteria to be a Femeconomy approved company is at least 30% of women on the Board of Directors or 50% female ownership. This provides businesses with the opportunity to support gender equality through their procurement decisions. Contact us for more information.
