IWD 2023 Campaign

Making Of Pest Solutions 2023 International Woman’s Day Campaign

One month on from celebrating the professional women of the pest control industry on the 8th of March as part of our Pest Solutions 2023 International Woman’s Day campaign we were delighted to see how much traction the campaign gained and how much support we received.

2023 International Woman’s Day Campaign Video Outtakes

The girls had a blast recording the video with some of the more fun parts hitting the cutting room floor. Here are the best bits of the outtakes.

Pest Solutions Service Manager, Gabrielle Hogg and the rest of the women who worked hard to put together the campaign had loads of fun recording the video, answering the questions that formed the article and engaging with all the people who reached out to participate on social media and in person. Thanks to BPCA and the Glasgow Chamber of Commerce for sharing the campaign on their websites.

Championing Female Pest Professionals On International Woman’s Day

Championing the role of females in the professional pest control industry is something we are passionate about here at Pest Solutions because we can see how directly how starting to achieve a better balance within our business has been a significant part of the success of our business. We undertook a new recruitment strategy to hire the best talent available on the basis of attitude first and as a result, the gender balance in our business moved from resembling the rest of the pest control industry at roughly 4.5% female employment to close to us having 40% of our team made up of women.

Our focus on building the right company culture has resulted in more than just this outcome. Service quality is up, customer retentions are up, team morale is up, staff retention is up, sales are up, leads are up, CPD achievements are up, and the business more than quadrupled in size in the last 3 years.

It was great to celebrate 2023 International Womens Day with the campaign led by our female pest professionals but we also look forward to celebrating how great our entire team are every day as they continue to do a great job delivering excellent customer service every time.

We would encourage any like-minded businesses in the pest control industry or any other industry for that matter to put the people, the team and the culture first and everything else will be much easier to achieve as they go the extra mile to put the customer first.

Have You Considered A Career As A Pest Professional

Here at Pest Solutions we are committed to building the right culture within our business and that starts with our team. As we celebrate the incredible women within our business and the wider industry on International Women’s Day 2023 we are proud of what we have achieved. However, we are even more excited about what we will see happen in the future of our business and the pest control industry.

The industry average female employment is currently reported at 4.5%. At Pest Solutions are seeing the balance much closer to equality at 36%… But could this be higher?

I am sure it could. When we undertake new recruitment, the number of applicants is heavily male-dominated. Yet our hiring looks more balanced. This is because we select the best candidates regardless of gender. If you have the right attitude and a passion to be the best, we want you in our team.

Professional Women of Pest Management - IWD 2023 - Pest Solutions

I would like to see more women consider the pest control industry as the exciting career it can be. We work hard to promote the industry as a career choice for all. Are you a recent science graduate? Are you looking for a fulfilling workplace?

If so, we would love to speak to you.

Due to our growth, we are regularly looking for new recruits in Scotland and the North of England.

Apply today by sending your CV to chris(at)pestsolutions.co.uk . If we do not have any positions available or if you are outside of the area we cover I would be happy to forward your CV to another like-minded professional BPCA Member company that may be able to speak to you.
