Now in its sixth year, the RB Global Challenge has grown from a local Indian competition into a global graduate recruitment tool. University-age students are challenged to come up with a business idea based on an RB product that shows performance, profitability and social purpose.
In 2019, 19,000 students registered for the challenge across 13 markets – with the winners from Bangladesh impressing the judges with a biodegradable lunch box with a hand sanitiser in its lid. These young innovators will represent RB at One Young World 2020, the global forum for young leaders. In 2019, we made 50 job offers to young people around the world as a direct result of the challenge.
At RB, gender equality throughout our business is more than a moral imperative, it’s good for business. We have imbedded this concept throughout RB, from our hiring policies to our leadership development programmes. We have also set ourselves the ambitious target of 40% of women in senior management positions by 2022.
We have two key initiatives to help us succeed: our DARE programme and the Accelerate leadership development programme. DARE aims to Develop, Attract, Retain and Engage talented women, and positively supports work-life balance, dual careers and international mobility. The Accelerate programme includes three-day workshops where female leaders build upon their strengths and develop strong support networks to develop their careers
