At a time when 1 in 4 women are considering leaving the workforce due to COVID-19 (as shared in the McKinsey Women in the Workplace 2020 report), Olga Feingold, Talent Development Partner and Head of Diversity & Inclusion at Analog Devices (ADI), took action to ensure talented women at ADI continued to feel supported and knew that the company was invested in their long term success. ADI chose the Aurora employee engagement platform from reacHIRE, which is specially designed to help groups of women thrive and grow within their organizations. Aurora takes a new team-based approach to building community and engagement while helping companies improve retention.
“When you’re reading sobering statistics, it’s a crucial reminder to ask how you can ensure your company culture is best supporting inclusion and fostering development, “ said Feingold. “To further this effort, we launched a new initiative and focused not only on the short-term impact but also on the continued long-term impact to our talent pipeline.”
Feingold said that many managers of the participants have noticed improved leadership skills and stronger resilience. “We are impressed with the impact Aurora has had on building the community, confidence, and careers of ADI women.” As a result of the Aurora experience, 90% of participants said they felt more committed to ADI, and 95% felt more supported during the pandemic. An ADI employee who participated in the Aurora experience said, “I’ve been able to create meaningful relationships with co-workers, which has been extremely valuable during the COVID pandemic.”
