Worldline is strongly convinced that Diversity is a key lever in our competitiveness and attractiveness. Thus in 2017, Worldline launched its Gender Equity Program with the ambition to reduce the female capital gap within its organization. This commitment is established in our CSR TRUST 2020 long-term ambition. Since then, the teams of the Worldline Recruitment & Mobility function have also been hard at work, ensuring we enable job opportunities and internal career progress for our female applicants and employees.
When recruiting both female and male talents, strengthened inclusivity in the profiles we recruit is essential. In tight labor markets, a better gender representation balance leads to better decision making and better business outcomes. Improving women representation through recruitment is the basis for a solid pipeline of female successors for expert and managerial positions. At Worldline, we therefore foster diverse teams, inclusive of both sexes, to achieve our tier 1 work product. Effectively, half of our potential labor force is female. Our target is to better attract and recruit female candidates. Consequently, the recruitment function is to adapt its talent acquisition strategies.
