IMPROVING DIVERSITY IN RECRUITMENT

IMPROVING DIVERSITY IN RECRUITMENT

& lsquo;Removing the Barriers to Change’, & lsquo;Promoting Diversity in Civil Service Fast Stream’ and & lsquo;How e-Recruitment can help Improve Diversity’ are three topics being discussed at WCN’s free-to-attend breakfast seminar at the Victory Services Club, London, on Friday 26 October.

The speakers include Dan Robertson, Diversity & Inclusion Director, Employers Network for Equality & Inclusion. In examining how organisations can remove the barriers to change, Dan Robertson will explore the impact of unconscious bias on both opportunities and staff/manager relationships. He will show how unconscious bias creeps in to recruitment and why we should care.

In his session Philip Wilson, Chief Psychologist & Chief Assessor, Civil Service Fast Stream will cover several areas including, mapping the diversity challenge, how to get branding and social media right, and reaching out to under-represented groups.

Philip Wilson, comments: “Promoting diversity has many elements and can be a complex challenge for any organisation. This talk highlights interventions that can really work - from attraction to selection to positive action - with practical guidance for implementation.”

Completing the line-up, Charles Hipps, Managing Director of WCN and author of The Guide to Best Recruitment Practice in e-Recruitment in the Public Sector, will discuss how e-Recruitment can improve diversity. He will argue that by embedding good practices within your organisation and identifying the sources that generate high quality minority applicants, greater diversity within the workforce can be achieved.

Charles Hipps remarks: “A more diverse workforce brings with it many benefits not least it enhances staff retention rates. Yet many organisations still find it difficult to recruit a greater mix of people. e-Recruitment can play a big role in remedying this, by making the recruitment process accessible to all and continually monitoring equal opportunity performance.”
