Behavioural Scientist

Team Chat

Full time 1 January to 31 March 2021

Aequip exists to give everyone the same chance to truly thrive, starting in the workplace. We equip companies with a diversity and inclusion analytics platform that actively promotes employee feedback and organisational listening using behavioural science. 

We bridge the gap between employees and employers by giving people a safe and direct way to provide feedback about anything happening at their company, regardless of who they are or what their role is. Our platform is designed to ensure that all voices are heard, especially individuals not in the dominant culture. Aequip is a mission-driven, commercial business launched from the Zinc social impact incubator.

Why now?

  • 85% of workers are disengaged in the workplace, according to Gallup…
  • And low employee engagement costs businesses across the globe $450-$500 million annually.
  • As little as 23% of frontline workers feel that it’s “safe” for them to offer their employers feedback or take risks.

Would you like to help change this? And contribute to a more transparent and inclusive work environment FOR ALL?

If your answer’s YES, you have come to the right place…
