International Women’s Day celebrates the contributions that women make in our own offices every day from inspiring excellence to advancing their own careers.
This day commemorates the women that are continuously paving a monumental path for future women.
VEREDUS WOMEN IN LEADERSHIP
Veredus | Hays
“I think there’s still a double standard when it comes to being a strong leader—it’s admirable in a man and sometimes referred to negatively when a woman displays those same characteristics.”
GENDER DIVERSITY IN NORTH AMERICA
More than 5000 people worldwide answered Hays’ Gender Diversity Survey.
Worldwide 18 per cent of men said there was a pay discrepancy, while 44 per cent of women agreed.
Most respondents said women had access to the same career opportunities as their male colleagues.
The majority of respondents said flexible working practices was the best way to improve diversity in the workplace.

Veredus | HAYS is sponsoring the Pediatric Cancer Foundation’s Cut for a Cure this year here in Tampa Bay. The mission behind Cut for a Cure is to raise money for cancer research.
Every year participants or teams unite to raise money for the charity. Along with raising money, the participants volunteer to shave their heads.
David Hull, our Chief Operating Officer, commits to shaving his head every year. This will be his fifth year participating in the event. He says, “with the money we raise, we can fund trials, where a lot of our kids—that’s their last resort for treatment.”
As a company, we are hosting a Dress Down for Charity fundraiser. All Veredus employees have the opportunity to donate $20 to Cut for a Cure in return they get to dress down for a week.
The whole company is very excited to support Cut for a Cure and they look forward to it every year.
Each year, Tampa Bay business leaders, media personalities and professional athletes shave their heads to raise money for the Pediatric Cancer Foundation.
Their efforts support medical research, programming and pediatric care for children and families battling pediatric cancer and blood disorders.
