Diverse Hiring: Practice Beyond Theory
a Robert Walters guide
Diversity and inclusion are not interchangeable terms. Diversity within an organization without inclusion is just many different people in the same place at the same time with no engagement or connection.
Most of us will know that diverse hiring is hiring with special care to ensure procedures (like hiring) are free from biases related to a candidate’s culture, ethnicity, gender, religion, age, physical cognitive ability, veteran status, or any other difference seen or unseen that makes each of us unique.
A diverse organization that is also inclusive is continually seeking ways to ensure all team members’ opinions are heard, that their unique perspectives are valued, and that they belong to one cohesive unit.
The purpose of this guide is to help hiring managers understand how their hiring practices may be biased, and exactly what steps they can take (tools and technologies included) to tackle discrimination, enable equality, and foster belonging in the hiring process and beyond.
