There is a strong business case for developing and implementing a diversity strategy within businesses. Companies with diverse workforces benefit from having a varied set of opinions, perspectives and experiences. On average, companies with diverse workforces outperform their competitors and have higher rates of employee engagement and overall happiness.
While many recruitment teams talk about the importance of diversity and developing inclusive teams, approximately half of employers have structured programs in place to attract diverse candidates. In order to secure the strongest candidates, recruiters will be required to explore innovative approaches to access more diverse talent pools.
Some of the top line points we will cover are:
- The steps required to build, implement and promote a robust diversity strategy
- Why we should measure performance to diversity targets, not quotas
- The tools and technology available to support businesses reach new talent pools
- The challenges to building a collaborative, diverse workforce
