Over 70% of Sonru clients interviewed use asynchronous video interviewing to support Accessibility, Diversity & Inclusion and to mitigate Unconscious Bias. We’ve already written an Unconscious Bias White Paper and an Accessibility White Paper so we felt it was high time Diversity & Inclusion got our undivided attention.
Diversity Digest – Subject Review and Best Practice Recommendations
This digest makes a compelling argument for Diversity & Inclusion along with practical how-to steps to improve your D&I strategy from start to finish. We have gathered data and findings from leading organisations, consultancies, and associations that show there is far more to Diversity & Inclusion than spin. Throughout the digest, you can see examples of Diversity & Inclusions excellence from companies such as Rolls-Royce, BT, Asciano and Nestlé. Thinking a company’s diversity and inclusion policy starts and ends with candidate selection is a common misconception.
6 tips to kickstart or improve your D&I strategy from start to finish:
- Start From The Top
Diversity & Inclusion policies should be embedded within the company culture from the top down and be evident in the employer brand.
- Think Outside the 9-5 Box
Lack of flexibility is a known inhibitor to certain minorities, particularly parents and carers, accessing suitable work opportunities and progressing their careers.
- Words Matter
Ensure your recruitment webpages and other employer branding resources demonstrate that diversity and inclusion is on the organisation’s agenda. Keep an eye out for gendered or other biased wording.
- Sourcing for Diversity
Proactively reach out to a diverse pool of applicants and consider devising a diversity sourcing strategy for every role.
- Reduce Bias In Processes
A fair recruitment process is only possible when there is a level playing field in which every application has an identical experience.
- Development and Retention
Once hired, it is important to ensure individuals feel integrated and included from the outset.
