By being aware of how inclusive language should be written, Arcadis was able to increase the number of female candidates by 10%

Arcadis is a technically oriented company. Companies like Arcadis have a more male-dominant environment.

“Our job postings lacked consistency and inclusive language.”

Two of the challenges we had was how to write inclusive language to attract more female candidates and how to make sure all the job postings had the same user experience.

Within Arcadis, we started a project around the subject of diversity and inclusion, which is a difficult subject. How do we do this?

“Via Accenture (also a Textmetrics customers), we were introduced to Textmetrics. “

Textmetrics coaches all recruiters with augmented writing, making sure they meet the inclusion and diversity standards necessary to reach their goals.

“Textmetrics enables my recruiters to write for our specific target audiences. Not only can we write job listings that lead to a more diverse pool of candidates, but we can also make sure the look and feel of the listings is consistent throughout our organization. We managed to kill two birds with one stone.”
