Diversity Hiring

Diversity hiring refers to a recruiting process that is specifically designed to reduce biases related to a candidate’s age, race, gender, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, disability, or any other personal characteristic that has no bearing on job performance. With a special focus on eliminating the biases that could hinder qualified candidates from being hired, implementing hiring practices for diversity ensures candidates are evaluated exclusively on merit.

By purposely considering job candidates from a variety of backgrounds and taking steps to ensure hiring practices are fair, inclusive, and free from barriers and biases, employers can create a level playing field that gives everyone an equal opportunity to compete for a job.

Diversity hiring is not about hiring people from a variety of different backgrounds just for the sake of meeting DEIB metrics. Rather, it’s about implementing hiring practices that eliminate unconscious biases in the recruiting process that prevent qualified, diverse candidates from being considered and eventually hired.
