Effective actions to boost diversity and inclusion in recruitment – Elite Business
With businesses facing close scrutiny over the actions they take to improve diversity and inclusion (D&I), recruitment practices have an important part to play. How and whom organisations recruit and retain provides a direct and visible demonstration of how seriously the organisation takes D&I.
As revealed in XpertHR’s latest recruitment survey, 95% of UK organisations are taking action to boost D&I in their candidate attraction and selection processes. However, just 55% rate their hiring practices as effective or very effective in making a positive contribution to their D&I strategy.
While it’s encouraging that employers recognise the importance of D&I and are taking steps to ensure recruitment practices reflect these principles, our findings suggest that some of these actions are not as effective as they could be. It is important for employers to gauge which actions generate the best results and which might be improved.
