RTT – Inclusion Across your Organisation: From Resourcing to Harnessing the...
Tue 7 June 2016, 09:00 – 12:45 BST
Hosted by Heather Gaston, Deployed HR Infrastructure Bechtel.
Inclusion is rightly in the front of everyone’s minds, but is it only HR and the Board that really care about it?
Most Hiring Managers are focused on their view of the ‘best’ candidate giving little regard to Inclusion when making selection decisions. Therefore, is it our role to provide inclusive attraction methodologies, data monitoring, broad short lists and inclusion/bias training, then leave the Managers to their decision making; or can we change the language of our inclusion communication to make it more business focused, therefore making inclusion part of decision making.
The evolving definitions of diverse and inclusive workforce …..
Ultimately what are we trying to achieve by being inclusive? What does an inclusive workplace look like? Would we become less inclusive by trying to define inclusive? Once we are inclusive how do we then maintain the right balance of inclusion within the organisation and would that apply only to certain roles or levels.
There is much discussion about ‘blind recruitment’ and how technology may help us with this. However, is this really the answer or do we just drive discrimination into another point of the processes, while making our processes harder to manage.
How do we demonstrate the impact on the bottom line of inclusive recruitment , retention and training ?
The problem with Inclusion is that we have more questions than we have answers. Join this Resourcing Think Tank discussion to see if we can come up with any!
