Workplace Diversity: Hiring

Hiring High Quality Diverse Candidates

Enrich your employees and improve your bottom line

The hiring process presents a tremendous opportunity for your organization to increase diversity. Training your hiring managers to hold proper interviews with diverse applicants is essential so they can be sensitive to differences in cultural traditions and perceptions regarding resume structure and interview expectations. But workplace diversity training goes beyond racial and cultural diversity. Training also educates your supervisors and employees about emerging subjects, like being inclusive to all ages, all gender identifications, and all height and weight variations.

Presenting your hiring managers with our online Hiring High Quality Diverse Candidates course will quickly generate a workforce of talented, motivated new-hires to push your organization forward. As Ireland’s Chief Executive Officer of the Equality Authority, Niall Crowley, explains, diversity training will lead to higher “productivity, increased workplace innovation and lower employee turnover.” To stay competitive, organizations must embrace equality and diversity.

Before You Can Hire Diverse Applicants, First You Have to Find Them

Our diversity training guide for hiring presents supervisors with advice on how to find applicants with a variety of backgrounds, experience,s and expertise.
