Digital transformation will continue to drive change for businesses. The world has changed - the events of 2020 fundamentally and permanently altered how we live, work, connect and communicate. Now more than ever, talent is a company's key driver of success, but it's never been more challenging to create a winning workforce. As the labour market continues to recover and rebuild, it's critical for employers to retain top talent and attract new candidates in this increasingly competitive marketplace.
In the past few years there has also been an increased focus on social justice both in people’s personal lives and in business. Topics ranging from voting rights, climate justice, healthcare, refugee crisis, racial injustice, income gap, gun violence, and equality in the workplace are all top of mind. It is no longer just a “nice to have” for organisations to prioritise building a diverse workforce and inclusive culture and equitable experiences. Business and HR leaders must put their goals into action to create real change and achieve business success.
Increasingly, recent research has shown that diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) are good for business. DEI can improve a company’s innovation, decision-making, and overall performance. It elevates employee engagement, individual wellbeing, motivation, and commitment. It also improves a company’s ability to compete for and win top talent, especially among younger generations of workers.
This free whitepaper from iCIMS and Talent Board seeks fresh insights into the world of diversity, equity and inclusion through a joint global survey of talent acquisition and HR professionals. It explores what recruiters and hiring managers are doing on the front lines to attract candidates from historically excluded groups, what employers are now doing differently to ensure diversity and what impact it is having on reducing bias and driving measurable recruiting results.
