Effective actions to boost diversity and inclusion in recruitment – Elite Business

Of the 55% that said their actions have been effective, almost two-thirds (62.7%) provide training to employees conducting job interviews to ensure they avoid asking questions which could be perceived as discriminatory. However, of the 45% that did not rate their efforts as effective, just two-fifths (41.1%) provide such training. This suggests that making sure interviewers use appropriate language when asking candidates questions can have a strong positive impact.
Another discrepancy is seen in ensuring recruitment tests are inclusively designed and practical for people to take. Twice as many organisations who rated themselves as effective take such action as those who did not (43.3% versus 21.4%).
