Small consistent changes help achieve lasting cultural change.
Here at FanDuel Group we are dedicated to increasing the amount of women in our
organization. Although we are still a long way from closing the gap in our male to female split we
believe small continuous consistent changes can help achieve a lasting cultural change.
We have made small impactful adaptations to recruitment practices in an effort to increase the
amount of female applicants. We have implemented Unconscious Bias training at people
management and senior leadership level and also rolled out interview bias training for all
interviewers. We are working towards ensuring that every interview panel has representation
that enables diversity of thought.
Given that woman are still 10 times more likely to be the primary caregiver at home we
recognise that it is more likely that women will require a flexible working arrangement. With this
in mind we teamed up with Working Families Scotland and their happy to talk flexible campaign
so each of our job adverts has a ‘happy to talk flexible logo” included. We hope that this will
lessen the stress which may be felt when asking about flexible opportunities at application stage
and hope that the logo will encourage women to apply who may otherwise have held back
assuming the role would not allow for flexible working.
Each of our job adverts include our diversity statement to ensure that applicants understand that
FanDuel are committed to creating a diverse environment, which is inclusive of everyone and
aims to get the best out of everyone.
We run our job adverts through a job decoder in an effort to ensure that the language used
doesn’t unconsciously target men and alienate women.
We will be working with our recruitment partners to ensure that our own best practices are
adopted within their processes to maximise a diverse pipeline.
More recently we are very excited to start using Equate Scotland’s career hub which has the
largest network of Women in Technology in Scotland. We feel this is a great opportunity to
target an untapped pool of talent and are really excited to see the applications come through.
We have worked with Equate a great deal over the years, they have been a fantastic support
from a advisory standpoint for our leadership team and have also ran fantastic training sessions.
