Diversify Your Recruitment Strategy

This includes the following steps: 

  • Create diverse interview panels. Identify the most effective recruiters for different markers of diversity.
  • Use structured and unstructured interviews with candidates to manage bias among recruitment team members.
  • Provide job candidates with the position's salary range and avoid asking about salary history.
  • Have candidates perform a sample work test so you can test the quality of the candidate's work versus subconsciously judging them based on their traits.
  • Write job descriptions that inspire and are balanced, inclusive and fair.
