The demographics of the workforce are changing and companies are struggling to keep up with the challenges that can be caused by ignoring this elephant in the room. Are you an employer of choice? If not, why not? From reputation management to recruiting to employee engagement, this workshop will help you identify the many areas in which your decision-making process is unintentionally impacted by bias, as well as ways to increase workforce retention.
Research shows that diversity & inclusion is a competitive advantage and it is especially important to embed diversity into decisions that impact talent management functions. If culture is like a completed puzzle, diversity represents the individual pieces of that puzzle, and the fit is what happens when you bring those dimensions of diversity together. Therefore, diversity recruiting is the process by which you expand your usual and familiar recruiting paths to actively engage and be more open and accepting of candidates who, we may at first glance overlook.
