Thanks to everyone who participated in our survey "WHAT ACTIONS ARE YOU TAKING TO DIVERSIFY YOUR TALENT?".
We were pleased to see that many of you are taking multiple active steps to diversify your talent pipeline.
And you are definitely not alone, a growing number of global companies recognize the importance of this and are making dedicated strides to diversify their candidate pool.
Notable firms like Google, Microsoft, and Salesforce are leading the way. They actively expand their diverse talent pipeline by sourcing varied talent, collaborating with organizations that support underrepresented groups, participating in diversity job fairs, using online platforms that cater to diverse communities, and leveraging social media. They also promote pipeline programs, internships, and scholarships aimed at underrepresented groups for a more inclusive workforce.
The assumption underlying these efforts is the “law of large numbers”: if we have more diverse candidates entering our pipeline, we are more likely to hire a diverse set of candidates. However, this assumption overlooks the abundance of human bias in recruitment processes, causing diverse candidates to fall between the bias cracks."
