Harvey Nash’s former director of inclusion joins people performance predictors, Chemistry
Carol Rosati OBE, former director of inclusion at Harvey Nash and founder of Inspire, a network connecting 8,000 senior businesswomen across four continents, has joined the people performance predictors The Chemistry Group (Chemistry) to help more people find the role they’d be brilliant in, regardless of who they are.
Chemistry believes that everyone should have the opportunity to be brilliant at work and provides organisations with scientifically proven people assessments, highly customised by its team of business psychologists. This means that a vast volume of job applicants can be screened objectively and efficiently. It has clients across the globe, including SAP, Diageo, House of Fraser, and Pizza Hut.
Rosati founded the Inspire network in 2008 and brings over 25 years’ talent management experience with her to Chemistry, where she will continue to focus on her wide-ranging diversity & inclusion activities, working with organisations in the UK and US to further integrate diversity into their recruitment processes. She will also be managing partner of Chemical Connections, a network of senior businesspeople working together to find ways of giving everyone their opportunity to be brilliant at work.
Rosati (pictured) said, "Businesses thrive on having the right people for the right jobs, however more often than not, biases stop organisations hiring those people.
"Chemistry’s work to give everyone the opportunity to be brilliant has always impressed me. Its tools and methodologies have not only removed biases from the recruitment process, but have also vastly improved success rates and lowered attrition rates. Chemistry’s values of helping brilliant people find brilliant work, regardless of background, education, or gender, aligns so closely with my own. It’s simply fantastic.”
Roger Philby, CEO of Chemistry, commented, "Everyone deserves the opportunity to find a role and a company they can thrive in, no matter what their background is. We have worked hard on our Select product to remove subjectivity and find the best people for the best role. With Carol now on board, with her vision, deep understanding of cultural change, and track record of helping people and companies create inclusive environments to improve diversity of thought, we'll have the ability to help more people find roles that they will be brilliant at and enable more organisations to fulfil their full potential".
Rosati will take up her position at Chemistry on the 22nd June and will be based in London, UK.
