Are you falling behind in the war for talent? Diversity and Inclusion are integral to the success of modern organizations. This belief is fueled by research that shows diversity brings new perspectives, a wider talent pool, stronger innovation, better performance, and even increased profits, and inclusive companies are best positioned to unlock these advantages. You may have ignored a largely untapped labor pool, including: people with disabilities, older workers, military veterans, and returning citizens.
To quote Johnny C. Taylor, President of SHRM, “As stewards of workplaces, HR people play a role that is bigger than any one of us. Our focus should not be on keeping the 'wrong' people out but trying to find the 'right' people to bring in," he said.
With unemployment below 4 percent, and the GDP losing an estimated $78 billion to $87 billion annually as these groups remain unemployed, maintaining outdated employment practices that present significant barriers to hiring is no longer a viable strategy for organizations.
Let’s not just talk about it, in this program we want to build awareness, and equip you to take action. You’ll leave with tools and solutions that you can take back to your organization, including the opportunity to network and meet people and organizations that help match people to opportunities.
In this highly interactive session, you will learn
The challenges/barriers facing candidates who are disabled, older workers, military veterans and returning citizens, and how as employers, we can help overcome these barriers.
How to develop a plan to expand the candidate pool and make more successful hires, with long term positive outcomes for individuals, organizations, and our communities.
How to activate change in our organizations, including tools, resources and introductions to partner organizations to help achieve inclusion in hiring.
