Peapod Digital Labs is working with Fairygodboss to tap into more female talent.
With an eye toward attracting more female talent to its commercial and digital hub, Peapod Digital Labs is forging a partnership with female-focused career community and talent attraction platform Fairygodboss. The latter company provides millions of women with free resources including job listings, community advice and insider information on how companies treat their female employees.
Peapod Digital Labs, part of the Ahold Delhaize USA family, will have a profile on the Fairygodboss website and share information about benefits including a parental leave plan, fertility treatment coverage and flexible work schedules. The profile will also include current employee interviews sharing what it’s like to be a woman working at the company.
“At PDL, we believe that it’s important to have diverse voices, experiences and backgrounds reflected in our leaders and our broader employee population,” said Deanna Morgan, the diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging leader for Peapod Digital Labs. “With the speed needed for innovation and problem-solving today, diversity of experience is more important than ever—and we believe it is a business imperative that can drive our success.
“We believe that it will be more powerful to hear directly from the women working for us,” Morgan continued. “When we tell the truth about our workplace experiences, we help create a more diverse workforce — and a more diverse workforce is key to creating a more equitable workforce.”
Late last year, Peapod Digital Labs awarded 11 diverse-owned suppliers from its first accelerator program with $10,000 stipends to support their business development and growth. Peapod Digital Labs and leaders at other Ahold Delhaize USA companies also chose Harbar, a National Minority Supplier Development Council-certified, Hispanic-owned business, as the participating supplier with the freshest perspective and awarded it an enhanced stipend of $20,000.
