Are you taking D&I serious in recruiting?
Research by Forbes, Howard Business School and The Economist suggested that companies following a true D&I strategy have a number of direct business benefits e.g.
- Business growth
- Higher earnings & return on equity
- Increased sales revenue growth
- Better ability to serve clients
The benefits of D&I are clear – but to truly execute it, you have to rethink your recruiting process and tools. Still, most hiring process bursts with bias, as human beings interact with other human beings. When we discuss bias, we typically think of the “obvious” sources of bias like gender, race and age, but many other unconscious biases influence the way we evaluate a candidate:
- School bias
- Beauty bias
- Affinity bias
- Conformity bias
The goal of diversity hiring is to identify and remove conscious and unconscious biases that could lead to hiring candidates based upon other criteria than the best matching competencies. This can best be achieved using an unbiased recruiting tool, but also needs awareness amongst recruiters and hiring managers.
How can an automated screening and assessment support your D&I recruiting process?
The new softfactors diversity recruiter module neutralises the candidate information to present the recruiter with only the information necessary to assess the candidates competencies and the match to the job in question. It offers multiple levels of D&I process depths with several D&I recruiting tools:
