Actions Speak Louder Than Words

Innoflow SDG Report 2020

 

Instead of having a wide range of projects, we have decided to narrow it down, focusing on the actions that will create the biggest impact. We will dedicate time to the goals described below to make sure that we always keep our promises and deliver valuable results. By using the framework of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by the United Nations, we will express our vision and be transparent about what we are doing and planning to do in order to achieve those goals.

Introduction

The Sustainable Development Goals are a set of 17 interconnected goals designed as a blueprint for achieving a “better and more sustainable future for all”.

We practice what we preach at Innoflow. So, as a business, we choose to take on the responsibility and support this initiative. 

We work sincerely and actively to support and drive change in these two areas – SDG 8 (Decent Work and Economic Growth) and SDG 10 (Reduced inequalities) which fall within the scope of our vision: 

A world with equal opportunities for all to get a meaningful work life.

This report is a mean to share our goals and vision to different stakeholders. It presents how we have and will be implementing the chosen goals in the specific actions we take. 

Why is it important to us?

Goals and targets

The SDG’s have become a common language for organizations and people around the globe. It is recognisable and creates a common framework for our personal goals.

Decent Work and Economic Growth

Decent Work and Economic Growth

SDG 8

We choose to support this goal since it aligns with our vision – equal opportunities for all to get a meaningful work-life – we protect labour rights, promote job creation, and make sure that everyone can get the benefits of innovation without harming the environment.

Diversify, Innovate and Upgrade for Economic Productivity

Diversify, Innovate and Upgrade for Economic Productivity

Target 8.2

We want to contribute to achieving higher levels of economic productivity through diversification, technological upgrades and innovation.

Full Employment and Decent Work  with Equal Pay

Full Employment and Decent Work with Equal Pay

Target 8.5

We promote full and productive employment, and decent work for all women and men, including young people, and persons with disabilities.

Reduced Inequalities

Reduced Inequalities

SDG 10

For many years, companies have been hiring people based on CV’s and cover letters. The problem with this is that it is human nature to form biased opinions and views, especially when hiring people. By using anonymised case solving, we remove that bias. Everyone deserves to be treated equally.

Ensure Equal Opportunities and End Discrimination

Ensure Equal Opportunities and End Discrimination

Target 10.3

We will promote anonymity in education and recruitment processes by ensuring equal opportunities for all people to realize their dream careers.

Selected customer cases

Challenge:

70% of the employees at Mindmill Digital Marketing Agency are male, including its hiring managers. Mindmill was recruiting an Inbound Marketing Specialist. When looking at the business, the role was predominantly held by male employees.

Solution:

After Innoflow’s anonymous screening, it was revealed that 7 out of the 10 final candidates were women, as well as the candidate they chose to hire. Mindmill agreed that Innoflow’s platform enabled the company to hire the most qualified candidate who most likely would have been deselected if it had done a regular resumé screening.

Challenge:

Atea, an IT-corporate consisting mainly of male employees and two hiring managers who are also males, was recruiting for their Cloud Graduate Program. Usually, the company’s recruitment procedures disqualify women as 4 out of 5 job finalists are male.

Solution:

Atea’s five final candidates with the best-scored solutions were all hired. The company therefore increased the diversity in the workplace by hiring two women and three men, who would not have been hired based on the former screening processes.

Other actions

NON-PROFIT PROJECTS:

Here at Innoflow, we encourage and enable our employees to offer their professional support to non-profit projects aiming at improving work environments and/or reducing inequalities.

WOMEN IN TECH

Innoflow is part of a campaign initiated by The Danish Authority to attract more women to the tech industry. By using an anonymized and case-based approach, Innoflow prevents unconscious bias in the candidate-screening-process thus ensures a fair recruitment process.
