April Marcot – Head of People and Culture

“Our value of ‘giving a fuck’ resonates most with our people. We care deeply about each other, our candidates and our clients. It sets the tone and the culture of our entire organization. We appreciate and appreciate people for who they are. We support, encourage and empower our employees to do the best job of their life at Talent, and we have a lot of fun doing it.
Rosie Willson – Account Manager
“I have been with Talent for almost 5 years and I feel like a second home. The people, the culture and the environment are second to none, and it truly is a place where you can be your true self. We are given resources to support our mental health (life street and head space subscriptions are given to all employees and subcontractors), opportunities to give back (Talent RISE) and of course opportunities to have fun (dinner lunches). team and company conferences). We are constantly encouraged by supportive and engaging leaders who always encourage us to strive to do better, to lead the way and to care.
Diana To – Head of Customer Experience
“For me, I feel like this is the first time in my career where I can truly be myself and have a purpose at work. I am constantly presented with challenges and opportunities where I have been able to truly flourish and expand my knowledge. It’s also great when you work with such a cohesive manager and team that we have a great culture at Talent. “
Chloe O’Toole – Marketing Manager
“I love working at Talent because as a marketer working for such a bold and refreshing brand, I have complete freedom to explore new and exciting directions in my work. We have an amazing global team who are extremely passionate about our brand, what it represents and most importantly the experiences we provide to our clients – working in such a very engaged environment is invigorating and inspiring.
Tamanna Mehreen – Senior Payroll Officer
“The defining characteristic of Talent International is its trust in its staff to do the right thing. Have the freedom to work independently and deliver the best results without micro-management. I also love the possibilities of flexible working arrangements such as working from home. I have found this to be extremely beneficial as a mom to a young boy.
“After COVID-19, our work environment has changed a lot and our work process has focused on the use of more technologies. We all liked using new technology, which made our job easier. Our management always makes us feel that we are part of the decisions of the company.
I certainly can’t go without talking about our employee health benefits, weekly social gatherings and our adventurous lectures (a once in a lifetime experience). As Talent employees, we have access to Life Street, an employee assistance program that provides incredible mental health support and other resources as needed. These benefits speak for themselves and as the old saying goes: “A happy worker is always a productive worker.”

I look forward to facilitating this important discussion to get a live reading of the challenges facing women working in tech in 2021 and to collect data to contribute to a report that has the power to influence business leaders. of the whole world.
Matthew Munson, Managing Director of Talent in Sydney, said: “One of the most common requests we receive is for our help in increasing diversity in our clients’ technology teams and, in particular, how they can hire more. candidates. Unfortunately, it’s also rare to find organizations that are actively doing anything to change the systemic issues that are causing imbalance in the first place. Until a fundamental shift towards addressing the root causes occurs, nothing will ever change. At Talent, we want to lead the way by engaging thought leaders and creating the roadmap to start leading the tech industry into a diverse future.
Through the event, Talent hopes to gain insightful information in order to provide companies with valuable insights into the specific and tangible changes they can make to advance women’s equality in technology roles.
