“The diversity of thought, experience, and perspective is pivotal in driving technological innovation forward. At GAP Talent, we recognise that fostering an inclusive environment is not just about doing the right thing; it’s about doing the smart thing – cultivating a workforce that mirrors the multifaceted global market.” – Kirstyn Bond / International Technology Recruitment Specialist / Assoc CIPD

Why Diversity Matters in Technology

The tech industry thrives on innovation, creativity, and forward-thinking. Research by McKinsey (2020) reveals that companies with greater ethnic and cultural diversity are 36% more likely to achieve above-average profitability. Moreover, BCG’s analysis (2018) suggests that companies with diverse management teams see a 19% increase in revenue due to innovation. These findings highlight the critical role diversity plays in enhancing business outcomes.

Despite the clear benefits, the journey toward an inclusive tech industry continues to evolve. At GAP Talent, we’re dedicated to leading this transformation for our Talent Partners; leveraging deep insights and our extensive global network to enhance diversity within tech roles.
