The recruitment process is the entry point for talent coming into your organisation, so building objectivity and fairness into every stage is critical for building a diverse and inclusive workforce. Scientific evidence and employment data consistently show that many of the decisions we make as humans are deeply flawed that discrimination and bias persist in many organisations and the prospects of people in minority groups are compromised. It is clear there is still much to be done to create equality of opportunity in the workplace. The answer to tackling diversity, equality and inclusion in recruitment does not lie in tactical, one-off ‘solutions’, it requires a strategic review of every touch point, every process and every tool you and your teams use to select talent. A structural issue requires a structural response. We believe that assessment technology, if designed in the right way, has the power to create a level playing field for recruitment and career progression.
Outcomes: In this interactive session, we will help you close the gap between the intent and taking action. Alan Bourne, CEO and founder, Sova Assessment will share a framework for reviewing your hiring process, identifying potential weak points and building a data-driven, end-to-end process optimised for diversity, efficiency and effectiveness.
