The Value of Diversity and Job Boards in Canada
In Canada, diversity and inclusion have become essential elements in the workplace. Employers recognize the value of diversity and inclusion as a means to attract, retain and engage employees. One way that employers can demonstrate this commitment is by utilizing diversity and inclusion job boards.
Here at HireDiverse, we are excited to explore the value our diversity and inclusion job board can bring to your organization:
Access to a diverse pool of candidates
Attract candidates from diverse backgrounds, including those from underrepresented groups. Because HireDiverse specializes in attracting underrepresented professional and New Canadian workers, employers have a greater chance of finding candidates who bring a unique set of skills and perspectives to the organization.
Improved brand reputation
Employers who use diversity and inclusion job boards are perceived as more inclusive and diverse. This is because job seekers view employers who use diversity and inclusion job boards as those who value and are committed to creating an inclusive workplace. It also signals a willingness from the organization to be more progressive.
Reduced bias in hiring
One of the biggest challenges in recruitment is unconscious bias. Unconscious bias can result in Canadian employers overlooking qualified candidates who may not fit the typical profile of a candidate. By using diversity and inclusion job boards, candidates who may not have been considered through traditional recruitment methods to be part of the selection process are included.
Greater understanding of diverse perspectives
Diversity and inclusion job boards provide employers with access to candidates who have diverse perspectives and experiences. This means that Canadian employers can learn more about different cultures and backgrounds, and develop a better understanding of the needs and preferences of a diverse workforce.
Compliance with Canadian diversity and inclusion legislation
In Canada, there are several legislative requirements related to diversity and inclusion in the workplace. For example, the Employment Equity Act requires employers to take steps to ensure that their workforce is representative of the Canadian population. HireDiverse is designed to attract underrepresented professionals and New Canadian candidates, who are an important part of this representation.
