Software Advice ran a survey this August and found that 46% of respondents feel more pressure from their workforce than usual this year to become more diverse and inclusive. That pressure can be a driving force for change, but the positive impact of having a diverse team is motivating enough.
Diverse teams have higher levels of productivity, collaboration, and innovation. In fact, there’s even evidence that diverse teams are more profitable.
But how do you build a diverse workforce?
- Talent availability
- Unconscious biases of decision-makers during the hiring process
- Your business’s attractiveness to diverse candidates
Luckily, there are steps you can take to work around these limitations and improve your diversity recruiting strategy. We’ve compiled a list of tips below to help you do just that.
Software Advice COVID-19 HR Impact Survey 2020 Methodology
The Software Advice COVID-19 HR Impact Survey was conducted in August 2020. We surveyed 123 HR “leaders,” defined as CHROs, HR vice presidents, HR directors, HR managers, or any other role with HR leadership responsibilities at U.S.-based businesses. We worded the questions to ensure that each respondent fully understood the meaning and the topic at hand.
