Why we do what we do
Open Door Recruitment and Development was founded on the basis that bringing diversity to leadership is one of the best things an organisation can do, to build leadership capability.
At Open Door, we work to increase the presence and influence of women in leadership not just for the sake of equality, but for the benefits that diverse leadership brings to organisations and the community at large.
Beyond recruitment, we work closely with our partners for the benefit of our candidates’ personal development and organisational transformation for our clients.
How we approach recruitment
Sourcing and recruiting a gender balanced shortlist in any discipline can be a challenge. In some technical areas like IT, many organisations find it nearly impossible. This means that some organisations with excellent diversity overall, can still struggle in particular areas.
Open Door can help bring balance.
In accordance with relevant laws, Open Door can conduct gender-focused search for candidates where companies have a genuine need for balance. Our methods are proven to find the right talent, each and every time, to help our partners make the right choices and achieve gender balance. We provide candidate shortlists to our clients that allow our clients to make balanced decisions regarding their teams’ make-up.
How we promote leadership
Attracting, developing and retaining women in your organisation is more than just recruitment, and it’s harder than most think. So we collaborate with several leadership experts and offer our candidates and clients access to transformational development opportunities, in both professional and personal spheres.
Equally, we work with our clients to help develop a cultural framework that means they are diversity-ready, so that change becomes the norm.
