SNC Lavalin creates inclusive online experience to support all candidates
The SNC Lavalin Group has launched Recite Me assistive technology across their careers platform to create a fully inclusive experience.
Recite Me’s inclusive digital tools enable all website visitors to customize their journey and make it work best for them. It also helps SNC Lavalin to widen their talent pool as part of their inclusive approach to employment.
SNC Lavalin is a world-leading engineering and project management company with over 50,000 employees worldwide, with offices in over 50 countries and operations in over 160 countries. SNC Lavalin is constantly looking for people who experience the world and its problems differently to uncover hidden talent.
In the UK, around half of people with disabilities are in employment (53.2%), compared with 81.8% non-disabled people. This represents an abundance of overlooked talent and Recite Me is able to support SNC Lavalin to remove barriers online and engage with everyone.
“Recite Me goes to the very heart of our values. It's helping us build a diverse, inclusive environment where we respect, understand, and value different people – starting with how we recruit them.”
Victoria Jones, Head of Recruitment UK & Europe, SNC Lavalin
