Arrows Group Global have signed up to Earn Your Worth – a campaign championing fair pay for all.
A growing understanding of the importance of diverse teams has brought renewed urgency to addressing one of the tech industries most persistent problems: gender pay inequity. According to Diversity in Tech, Around 78% of large organisations admitted to having a gender pay gap in the technology sector, with women earning up to 28% less than their male colleagues in the same tech roles.
As part of our commitment to eradicating pay disparities, we have teamed up with Major Players, who launched the campaign in 2019, and will no longer ask our candidates to divulge their salary history. We believe for a candidates salary history only perpetuates gender, ethnicity, sexuality, and disability inequality; and allows for unconscious bias to take control. There is clear evidence which indicates that when making this simple, low-cast change to the hiring process, we can positively impact pay inequality.
As one of the UK’s leading technology recruiters, we have a responsibility to play our part in closing pay gaps across marginalised groups; and championing fair pay for all.
