Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

DEI should be the cornerstone of any recruitment strategy. As a recruiter we have an important part to play in promoting diversity and advising on and practising fair and inclusive recruitment processes.

With our own dedicated DEI committee, we have a commitment to the promotion of DEI. This includes working with hiring organisations on their own diversity initiatives, leading conversations through our events and education program, ensuring our own working environment is as inclusive as possible, and collaborating on initiatives to support women in tech. 

Why it matters for businesses

A diverse workforce has been shown time and time again to improve productivity, creativity and innovation which ultimately leads to better success.

In the Netherlands we have a number of laws and long-term initiatives to encourage DEI. Whilst these have helped lead us to ranking No1 in the world for the most-inclusive workforce within the Kantor Inclusion Index 2022, there is still work to be done with global progress stalling.

Yet the benefits of DEI for businesses are clear. Not only is it an important factor for employee retention, happiness and engagement, it is essential for strong business performance.


Our DEI Offerings

We hold our leaders accountable for implementing our organisations DEI vision, by setting standards, driving initiatives, and being role models. We do this by ensuring our leaders are trained and feel knowledgeable enough to have conversations about DEI with our employees, candidates, and clients. We are committed to advancing an inclusive culture and creating a better, equitable working world for everyone.

Our ongoing DEI mission is to ensure that DEI principles are integrated into all areas of our attraction, sourcing, and recruitment processes, as well as talent performance/management, advancement, and retention strategies. We conduct competency-based interviews to assess candidates based on qualities such as hard work, motivation, competitiveness, and resilience. Our job descriptions have been reviewed and amended to eliminate gender bias using tools like the Gender Decoder website.  During the internal interview process, we educate potential employees and candidates on the importance of DEI. Our Workshop and Interview Days (i.e. assessment centres) also include a section on DEI and its importance internally and externally. 

Our DEI vision statement is “To be recognised by our clients, candidates, and staff as a leader within Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion through positive action in reducing bias. Our aim is to make a difference to the working world by supporting our clients, providing clear advice on DEI recruitment processes, and encouraging allyship across all our networks.”

I want to be part of the change that is happening around us. Being part of TA allows me to really show my passion for people and being part of the LGBTQ+ community has meant I want to ensure everyone can be recognised for their potential contribution.
