Challenges with Post-Conventional
Diversity in the New Hybrid World

D&I hiring is an important topic for TA leaders now more than ever. Forced recent changes in the ways companies work highlighted that many corporations can accommodate the needs of their workforce with remote options. In this webinar, we will discuss if these changes help pave the way for more inclusive and diverse hiring strategies or actually hinder efforts in D&I programs.

Why watch it?

Our panel of Diversity and Inclusion and Recruitment experts bring their years of real life experience to the subject. We discussed everything from the basics of D&I Hiring to impacts and trends in the "new normal", post pandemic work environment, including effects of remote working, what technology stack is available and much more! Take the opportunity to watch the discussion with thought leaders in D&I hiring. You will have the chance to learn valuable takeaways on a hot topic that will only get hotter.

Joe Aburdene (vsource), alongside panelist Joanne Lockwood (SEE Change Happen) and Jim Berrisford Guest Co-Host (Rezoomo, Berrisford Associates, RCircle) will bring their expert knowledge and advice to TA leaders on Diversity and Inclusion strategies, trends, tips and technology.

What is the business case or return on uniformity or exclusion, or the justification for the rejection of perfectly good people during our hiring process or when looking to develop our people internally and promote?

What do you mean? You don’t write that kind of business case?

Yet I still hear of organisations that need to justify Diversity and Inclusion and to create a culture of belonging!

Why is that?



SEEChangeHappenBlog - Anyone for soup?

SEE Change Happen Blog: "Anyone for soup? – Is your product inclusive by design, you might think so but is it really?"

Your company is one that produces products for the mass markets, consumer products that you naturally expect that everyone can use and can benefit from, am I right?

You engage with your own product design teams, probably carry out market research to make sure that every aspect has been considered from all angles, after all you have been in the business for many many decades and have extensive experience in this market.

Some might even call you the de facto brand.  So I am sure it would surprise you to learn that you have inadvertently excluded approximately 10% of the population immediately from using your product efficiently.  Read more...

vsource Blog: The Positive Impact of Remote Work on Diversity and Inclusionvsource Blog: "The Positive Impact of Remote Work on Diversity and Inclusion"

It’s no secret that Diversity and Inclusion programs work. They help generate more revenue, improve productivity, foster innovation, and generally speaking, make everyone feel happier at work. Likewise, the benefits of remote work are also well-known especially with regards to widening the talent pool. Even so, few companies fully understand how remote work can play a vital role in helping reach D&I goals.
But before we talk about how the two intertwine, let’s first take a look at the current state of play during this global pandemic.Read more...

There’s no doubt that the COVID-19 outbreak and resulting near-global lockdown has had a huge impact on the recruitment industry. While some companies are still hiring, the temporary layoffs and introduction of mass remote work has seen many employers shelve their plans for workforce expansion. But what does this mean for diversity and inclusion? Has the outbreak had a detrimental effect on D&I or is it opening doors for proponents of D&I initiatives?Read more...

Not only do they improve productivity and innovation but from a recruitment standpoint, they widen the talent pool allowing us to find the best talent on the market. But when it comes to D&I, what kind of technology is out there on the market?

Incredibly, diversity in the workplace has been something of a hot topic for nearly two decades now. But diversity initiatives in the year 2000 looked very different to those we now have in the year 2020. From gender to cultural background, let’s take a closer look at how these initiatives have evolved in the past twenty years.

But first, a little history.
