#Nextchat: Sourcing and Recruiting for Diversity


Sourcing and recruiting diverse candidates can be challenging. But the smartest and fastest-growing organizations understand that having the best talent from every background is key to sparking innovation and seeing results. 

A proactive diversity recruiting strategy needs to have clear goals, the systems to make the goals successful and metrics to measure that success.

New tools and technology are making the process easier for HR and recruiters to boost their diversity hiring programs by building more awareness for job openings in diverse talent pools.

Organizations that use technology and social media to promote their employer brand, and that boost their career sites with information about their culture, will have greater success in reaching the diverse pool of candidates they’re looking to attract.  

How is your organization recruiting diverse candidates?
