Inclusive Recruitment

All evidence proves that organisations focused on building a more inclusive culture attract and retain a wider diversity of talent. The inclusive culture then empowers diverse talent to think differently and share their experiences and perspectives, which in turn is a key driver for innovation, development and engagement.

Inclusive Recruitment: Why You Need It

It is essential that your recruitment approach is inclusive. Full employment means that organisations, more than ever, are in a race for talent. Inclusive recruitment minimises barriers and presents your organisation as inclusive and welcoming, enabling you to attract anyone with the right skill set, regardless of difference. Our learning and development programmes focus on the touch points in the recruitment process that are barriers to inclusion and diversity.

Inclusive Recruitment: What You Will Learn

We offer a range of content within this field which we will adapt to meet your specific needs. Whether it is general awareness raising or targeting a specific issue we will design the training around your own recruitment process to maximise the impact of learning. The mix of content will be drawn from the following learning outcomes:

  • Understand the legal framework: discrimination and harassment, including definitions and caselaw, risk and responsibility;
  • The impact of effect over intent;
  • Why it remains important to have fun at work – it improves performance! – but knowing where to draw the line on banter;
  • Strategies to call out rather than standby: challenge or report unacceptable behaviour and what support is available from within your organisation to enable this;
  • Managers guidance on dealing with subtle behaviours before they escalate, through to more overt and obvious problems in the moment, and within policy.
