    The changing nature of assessment is something we have covered from several different angles on this show before with contributions from both practitioners and consultants.

    • How technology has evolved assessment over time
    • Using AI as a capability to drive specific outcomes
    • How AI can be used to find hidden gems in the candidate pool
    • The evolution of video interviewing
    • Giving candidates more value by building an interactive assessment experience
    • The importance of people and machines working together to be better
    • The problem of algorithmic bias and how to avoid it
    • The future of assessment

    Ep 248: Fixing The Broken Rung

    Ep 248: Fixing The Broken Rung

    The latest McKinsey Women in the Workforce report illustrates that there is still a very long way to go before we get to gender equality in the workforce. McKinsey identifies a "broken rung" in the career ladder with only 72 women promoted or hired to manager level for every 100 men promoted or hired to manager level.
    So how do employers fix this situation, what support is required, and how do mindsets need to change? To help answer these questions my guest this week is Addie Swartz, CEO of reacHire. Addie has been on a three-decade-long mission to change the trajectory for women at work and has some extremely practical insights to share.
    In the interview, we discuss:
    • Addie's background and motivation for starting reacHire
    • Fixing the broken rung
    • The bottom-line impact of workforce equality
    • Investing to support women in their early careers
    • Why women leave the workforce and the challenges they can face when trying to return
    • Changing employer mindsets
    • Bias in recruiting
    • Reverse mentoring and the benefits of a multi-generational workforce
