Integrate D&I into your hiring strategy: Embrace Non-Traditional Candidates!
Employers are often challenged by high turnover rates and the inability to find qualified candidates. In some cases, positions remain unfilled for months or don’t get filled at all. These trends have led progressive employers to take a closer look at non-traditional candidates— people without degrees, individuals in recovery, people with disabilities, older workers, people with criminal records, etc.—to fill their hiring needs.
This session will focus on providing strategies for recruiting a diverse workforce. Be prepared to shift the traditional thought process of how diversity recruiting is perceived and defined to ensure diversity recruiting efforts are more inclusive.
