Panel discussion: How to successfully embed diversity and inclusion into your recruitment strategy

Panel discussion: How to successfully embed diversity and inclusion into your recruitment strategy

Employers are increasingly coming to recognise the strong business case for improving the level of diversity and inclusion within their workforce. By recruiting professionals from a range of backgrounds at all levels of seniority, businesses gain access to a wide variety of viewpoints and perspectives. Companies with staff from a broad range of backgrounds have been found to outperform firms with a less diverse workforce.

But how to make sure that your D&I programmes are the best aligned with the strategy of your business? In this panel we will discuss:

  • changing your job descriptions and day-one right to request flexible working as tools to attract a wider range of candidates
  • impact of unconscious bias and effective ways of eliminating it from recruitment process
  • less conventional methods to challenge your organisational culture and diversify your talent pipeline.
