As the CMO of a trailblazing company in software development and IoT technology, I am incredibly proud of our achievement in fostering gender equality. In an industry often dominated by men, our company boasts a 10:9 female-to-male employee ratio, creating a gender-balanced workforce. This milestone has brought extraordinary benefits not only to our company, but also to our clients and partners.

Empowering Women in Tech

Our commitment to empowering women in tech shines through our inclusive hiring practices and extensive culture and diversity training programme. By nurturing a new generation of female technology leaders, our company has become an incubator for female talent who can thrive and feel valued in their roles, regardless of gender.

A New Era of Innovation

The gender balance in our workforce has sparked groundbreaking innovations and software development projects. With a diverse team, we benefit from unique perspectives and problem-solving approaches. This diversity has proven to be the secret ingredient in achieving unmatched creativity and ingenuity. When clients partner with us for IoT and tech projects, they are teaming up with a company that constantly pushes the boundaries of what's possible.

The Competitive Advantage

In today's fast-paced and competitive market, businesses need to work with partners who can bring fresh ideas and perspectives. Our commitment to gender equality fosters a culture of innovation and excellence, giving us a competitive advantage. By choosing our company, clients are selecting a partner that will help make their projects stand out and succeed.

Better Collaboration, Better Results

Our diverse and inclusive environment fosters better collaboration amongst team members. When individuals from different backgrounds and perspectives work together, they're more likely to come up with innovative solutions that will benefit projects. This spirit of collaboration ultimately results in higher-quality work and better outcomes for businesses.

We’re excited and proud that we are one of 15 companies in Bristol that is taking part in the Bristol Creative Industries Internship Programme. We have our first intern starting with us next month. Lucy Rees, our Chief People Officer is championing this programme and feels passionately about the need to address the barriers that are currently in place that stop under-represented people from low-income households and ethnic minorities from fully participating in the creative and tech industries. We can’t wait to see what this programme brings to our team and we are fully committed to continuing our participation in future programmes.

A Ripple Effect

When organisations choose us for their IoT and technology projects, they're not just investing in our expertise—they are also promoting a culture of diversity and inclusion in the tech industry. A partnership with us sends a strong message to other companies, encouraging them to prioritise gender equality and create a more innovative and competitive landscape.

The Future Is Bright

By selecting Newicon for IoT and tech projects, clients not only get a dedicated, innovative partner, but also support a company that is setting the standard for gender equality in the industry. Our commitment to gender balance is a testament to the power of embracing diversity in the tech world, and partnering with us will help ensure a brighter future for the industry as a whole.
