Event Whitepaper: Increasing Diversity and Inclusion in Your Teams

D&I is a hot topic within the in-house recruitment sphere and remains something that is complex to approach. Whether this relates to budgeting, resources, or even measuring the success of your existing initiatives. At this intimate speaker and networking breakfast event in partnership with AssessFirst, we discussed some of the main challenges and solutions relating to diversity and inclusion.

At this dynamic breakfast event, we covered some of the most pressing topics within D&I. One of the main challenges faced by in-house recruiters is knowing precisely how to improve D&I within your teams. Our industry expert speakers shared some insights on how to approach this, such as through using AssessFirst’s predictive model to assess a candidate’s potential impact rather than just their personality or experience as a whole. We also looked at how to improve employer branding in the context of building a more inclusive atmosphere, and generally how to diversify your talent pool to drive productivity.
