Future of work, US abortion benefits and UK Fintech gender gaps

Connecting job roles and employer brands to global audiences is what we do best. Our Amply network partners with publishers all over the world to help professionals find their dream jobs, and companies to secure top talent.

In addition to the open roles our curated job boards offer individual partners, we create engaging, relevant content tailored to each publisher. Here’s a little look at some of the content our team produced for our network this week… 

We discuss the impact politics can have on the workplace and highlight some of the companies offering abortion benefits to staff state-side in the wake of the fall of Roe. We also delved into the gender gap in UK Fintech – while things are improving, it’s clear more needs to be done. We also caught up with future of work expert Steve Cadigan, for an insightful look at where the 9-5 is going.

There’s plenty more where that came from, so if you’re a publisher, eager to find out how we can help you with tailored career and jobs content or to explore partnering with us, email hello@jobbio.com.

Work Is Not Going Back To Normal, So Get Used To Being Flexible: Talent Advisor Steve Cadigan

Jobbio’s director of publishing, Rosaleen McMeel, interviews Steve Cadigan, future of work expert, global speaker and author of Workquake, for a deep dive into the future of work on our partner Euronews

“Every company culture in the world just changed,” Cadigan says. “How and where people work, communicate and so many other pieces of interaction in a company have shifted since the pandemic.”

“The psychology of the workforce has changed too, as many people hit pause on the life they were living and had a chance to observe it from a different perspective. Going through this is reshaping how people see their reality and we are seeing people make a change.”

15 U.S. Companies Offering Abortion Benefits To Staff

Kirstie McDermott, Jobbio’s senior content manager, takes a look at the impact of the US Supreme Court’s decision to strike down the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade on 24th June this year. 

In a piece on our partner VentureBeat, we look at how abortion is now banned in at least 10 states, as laws restricting the procedure take effect following the decision. More bans are due to follow in coming weeks as 26 states in total are likely to be affected by the ruling. As people struggle to access healthcare, one obvious knock-on effect is the cost of accessing services out of state. Many companies are rolling out benefits to help employees; we round them up.

Bridging The Gender Gap – Is UK Fintech Finally Catching Up?

Fintech has the potential to widen fair and equitable access to financial services, but as recent reports show, there’s still a long way to go to bridge the gender gap, writes contributor Amanda Kavanagh on Finextra.

A June 2022 report from EY shows that 76% of women working in the sector believe their firm is inclusive and 56% say it is diverse. And in the context of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DE&I), 94% of junior and mid-level female Fintech employees say they are able to express their views and suggestions at work, 89% say they are motivated to do their job, and 78% say they are able to be authentic at work. 

However, it’s not all positive. Among junior to mid-level employees, 63% of female respondents say their gender impacted how they are perceived professionally, compared to 27% of men. And 80% of women say their ideas are acted upon, compared to 94% of men.
