January 18, 2022 – Recruitment platform and executive search firm Mogul recently inked a deal with Avery Dennison Corp., a manufacturer of labeling products and functional materials. Using Mogul’s talent acquisition platform, Avery Dennison will source and hire diverse talent, with access to more than 430 million diverse candidate profiles. Avery Dennison was recognized in 2020 by Forbes as one of America’s Best Employers for Diversity, and this year was recognized by the Financial Times as one of Europe’s most inclusive companies. The company has many employee resource groups (ERGs) that provide resources, programs, support and advocacy for diverse employees. “Avery Dennison has a long history of bringing together differing viewpoints and ways of working. It is central to our success because we know that a mix of perspectives, backgrounds, and experience delivers the best ideas,” said Lindsay Flannery, vice of president human resources, label and graphics materials North America.
Mogul’s platform brings to the HR technology industry patent-pending software filters that allow recruiters to source top, diverse talent in several ways, including by gender, ethnicity, self-identified disability, and veteran status, without limiting search results.
Avery Dennison is a global materials science company specializing in the design and manufacture of a wide variety of labeling and functional materials. The company’s products, which are used in nearly every major industry, include pressure-sensitive materials for labels and graphic applications; tapes and other bonding solutions for industrial, medical, and retail applications; tags, labels, and embellishments for apparel; and radio frequency identification (RFID) solutions serving retail apparel and other markets. Headquartered in Glendale, CA, the company employed more than 32,000 employees in more than 50 countries.
Led by founder and CEO Tiffany Pham, Mogul pairs executive search and technology solutions. The firm has a network of senior-level women and minorities, and partners with organizations to attract and advance top, diverse talent. The firm partners with the Fortune 1000 and fast-growing start-ups to recruit diverse leaders, including Amazon, Intuit, IBM, Nike, Hearst, Stanley Black & Decker, McKinsey & Company, Intel, T-Mobile, Mastercard, Marsh & McLennan, and more.
Working with Clients During Challenging Times
Ms. Pham recently sat down with Hunt Scanlon Media to discuss the pandemic, hiring, and how her firm has adjusted to working with clients and candidates during these times. “We see a new normal emerging and many companies are evolving along with it. We think remote workforces and hybrid models will become more common as companies compete for top diverse talent,” Ms. Pham said. “The pandemic required all of us to innovate in the way we approach our workforce, and that innovation has been impactful. We always support our clients’ flexible needs when developing strategies and operational models and try to think of new or different ways to improve their processes or products.”
“This is a very exciting time for the search industry,” Ms. Pham said. “We can expect to see a growing focus on searching for diverse talent, particularly at executive levels but also for board of director roles. Many companies with very good overall D&I numbers are asking for help in searching for diverse talent in certain roles, primarily at the board level or above the middle management level.”
“They are evolving their focus on diversity and working to make sure that there is diversity at all levels and functions of the organization,” she said. “At Mogul, this is our specialty; we find top diverse talent for the world’s top organizations, like Hershey, Bain, Stanley Black & Decker and United Healthcare. Our clients know we have developed groundbreaking, patent-pending technologies for this very purpose, and they love us because of it.”
