If you’re recruiting diverse talent to meet numerical goals, you’ll likely hit your target but miss the point.
A diverse workplace creates a culture where employees of different religious and political beliefs, education, socioeconomic backgrounds, sexual orientation, geographies and skills are able to bring their authentic self to the workplace, and do their best work.
For our company, diversity is more than a recruitment strategy. It’s a business imperative because diversity encourages inspired thinking, novel ideas, and collaboration that leads to more creativity, innovation and engagement.
Building a recruiting and hiring process to support that business need is driven by values, not numbers.
