HOW DO YOU ACHIEVE DIVERSITY IN THE WORKPLACE?
Achieving diversity means striving for the right balance of diverse attributes in your team, while removing unconscious bias in the hiring process.
Consider the multiple facets of diversity.
Beyond gender equality or a good racial, ethnic, or age mix, diversity in the workplace could take many forms: employees’ origin, education, experience, personality, religion, sexual orientation, physical ability, family status, lifestyle, skills, etc.
Be aware of and eliminate any unconscious bias when hiring.
Bias can be found in the wording of the job description itself, in where the candidates are being sourced, or in the simple act of relying too much on employee referrals - which tend to bring a similar type of candidates.
