We are delighted to announce that our latest free guide, The Ultimate Guide To Workplace Diversity & Inclusivity, is available to download now. Diversity and inclusion play an important and growing role in the workplace and directly affect the way recruitment professionals conduct their business. A recruitment strategy that recognises diversity, and the variety of worldviews and perspectives held by applicants, can help bolster staff retention as well as opening your business to new solutions, ideas, and opportunities.
Our new guide provides an introduction to diversity and inclusion – two concepts that, at first glance, appear to be opposites but in reality, work hand in hand – as it applies to talent acquisition, recruitment, and employee onboarding.
Topics Covered Include:
What diversity and inclusion actually mean in practice for recruitment professionals
Why diversity and inclusion are good for your business and its employees
Why businesses that take diversity seriously are in a stronger position to attract and keep the best talent
How unconscious biases and opinions can affect recruitment, how to recognise them, and strategies for preventing unintended discrimination
How you can establish good employment practices that value your employees and the contribution they bring
How to encourage engagement in diversity and inclusion throughout your team on an ongoing basis, and to minimise resistance to new initiatives
How to use your diversity and inclusion strategy to strengthen your hiring process and widen your candidate search
What you need to include on your job application forms and throughout your recruitment process to comply with inclusion and antidiscrimination legislation
How to make candidates feel welcome during interview
