Spotawheel women talk about their work in a male-dominated industry
The company gives the floor to its female employees, while pursuing a recruitment strategy focused on equality of opportunity and pay
With Equal Pay & Opportunity and the power of women in the workplace occupying society frequently and justifiably, Spotawheel is throwing the spotlight on women working on Europe’s fastest growing second-hand car platform.
More specifically, and contrary to the belief that the automotive sector is strictly male-dominated, Spotawheel, an innovative technology company active in the automotive sector, “not only accepts but encourages women to integrate into the team”, as Ioannis Magkafosis, Head of Talent Ops Group, says.
Therefore, Spotawheel’s recruitment strategy does not exclude any candidate and is designed based on meritocracy, setting specific goals in the context of promoting diversity and social inclusion.These objectives concern the adoption of fair policies of staffing, evaluation, development and reward, the avoidance of any discrimination and prejudices through continuous training and guidance, flexibility in work towards better work-life balance, as well as the promotion of female colleagues to positions of higher responsibility.
Given that the Spotawheel team is growing rapidly, the recruitment of female workers will increase at an even more intense rate in the coming period and the ratio of men to women will be constantly improving”, continues Ioannis Magkafosis. “Every organization needs more standards in positions of responsibility. Dynamic, positive and highly talented and effective women”, he concludes.
