The technology company is committed to promoting female talent and has increased the number of female employees by 289% in the last three years.
Facephi advocates for gender equality with access to quality education as a first step in the commitment to the SDGs 4, 5 and 10, adopted by the UN.
In the technology sector, where technical role is held more often by men than women, the digital identity verification company is committed to incorporating female talent in all areas. Thus, in the last three years it has increased its female workforce by 289%, reaching almost parity in the tech industry with 48%.
33.5% of senior positions at Facephi are held by women, which is three points higher than the average for Ibex-35 companies, according to the INE (National Statistics Institute). Female employees are a human asset that demonstrates a high rate of commitment to Facephi recording a loyalty rate of 84.38%, a high indicator in a sector characterised by the volatility of its human resources.
Facephi’s firm commitment to encourage its employees to balance their professional and family life is reflected in a number of ways such as flexible working hours, hybrid work models application, and the future implementation of a four-day working week, which the technology company intends to do in a few months.
Magdalena Beltrá, Director of People & Culture of the company, points out: “Facephi is committed to women engineers and every year we work towards promoting the employability of female talent in our technical areas, raising awareness and collaborating with universities and different organisations”.
Facephi supports SDGs 4, 5 and 10 of the United Nations.
Facephi celebrates International Women’s Day and confirms its commitment to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), in particular those referring to quality education, gender equality and reduction of inequalities. The technology expert in protecting people’s digital identity firmly believes that it is necessary to reach these closely related objectives to achieve greater equality in society.
According to the UNICEF, one out of every four girls does not attend school in developing countries, which makes the gender inequalities in these territories worse. Facephi believes that without a quality education, girls today cannot realise the possibilities that a career in technology can offer them. For this reason, employees participate in talks and meetings with students from schools, high schools, and universities where they encourage students to follow their vocations to enter the world of work and take advantage of their opportunities.
This way, Facephi encourages its female professionals to act as the role models for younger generation of girls who aspire to enter the world of technology, to call for positive change advancing women, to contribute to a better society and the world.
