Although diversity and inclusion (D&I) is high on the agenda for regulators and firms alike, it’s difficult to implement. A major issue is that many companies believe they’re already promoting a diverse and inclusive culture.
However, only 40% of employees agree that their manager fosters an inclusive environment. The various constraints placed on groups of people by society can provide firms the insight in which they can begin to develop a better hiring process as well as foster a more inclusive working environment.
A way to do this is for firms to actively work with diverse communities to access their talent pools in order to be a more attractive prospect to diverse candidates.
Furthermore, taking a closer look at job descriptions and ensuring that the language used is gender-neutral and inclusive is essential in attracting talent from a wide-ranging background as well as hiring for values and not culture.
