Diversity Recruiting: A Holistic, Systems Approach
Diversity recruiting is typically a key component of plans to increase workforce productivity, innovation, and creativity in support of organization growth. The first step is to assess the current situation and determine what changes will best meet your business needs. A holistic approach will include the entire sourcing and selection process including the training and tools provided to the people doing the work.
A frequently-overlooked aspect is the mindset of the involved people regarding diversity and cultural difference. Each step of the process from writing the position description through posting, sourcing, interviewing, selection, onboarding, and retention involves decisions. These need to be inclusive decisions! A constructive mindset with a deep understanding of the nature of diversity and cultural difference and the associated tangible business value is essential for people to make effective decisions.
