Like most organisations, are you looking to reach out to future employees and be as inclusive as you can be? Of course you are! 

If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that we need to be person centric and understand the need of the individual.

But even with our best of intentions, we can often find that ideal candidates do not engage in the recruitment process or drop out early on.

In this session with Joanne Lockwood, you will be introduced to some of the common myths and ways to overcome them, as well as how to implement a strategy that aligns your recruitment vision with your D&I objectives.

You will also explore how to:

  • Find your starting point by aligning your corporate vision and values to your recruitment marketing and candidate engagement strategy
  • Realise what bedrocks and training you need to put in place before going to market on any diversity hiring mission
  • Understand how to build trust with your candidates in order to get them to share their information
  • Recognise that language is important and ensure you develop a cultural and emotional intelligence to engagement
  • Measure the effectiveness of initiatives around diversity hiring that go beyond first base, through onboarding and beyond
  • Consider the needs of individual candidates, and recognise that your new ATS or Talent Pipeline Tech may not work for everyone
