Embrace Talent Diversity in Your Sourcing Strategy

It's no secret that many companies struggle to nurture and promote diversity. As we see time and time again, diversity and its advancement are goals without easy solutions. Rather than be turned off by complexity and difficulty, companies and recruiters must approach diversity like they would any other issue, with determination, curiosity, and creativity. That’s what we’ve done here at Entelo, which is why diversity is one of our core tenets and its advancement is behind one of our flagship products.

Beyond the moral and ethical reasons, there are business considerations for why every company ought to make diversity a priority. Countless studies have shown that diversity initiatives improve morale, corporate culture, employee retention and recruitment, all of which increase a company’s competitive advantage.

What Happens When You Standardize Your Interview Process

Think about the worst interview you’ve ever had. Maybe it was an unprepared interviewer who clearly hadn’t seen your resume or found out who you were moments before you met. Or maybe it was when they forgot all about you and left you in the waiting room for 30 minutes.

For too many people, job interviews are intimidating and nerve-wracking affairs. Whether you’re a recruiter, hiring manager or candidate, the interview process can potentially be a disorganized mess for everyone involved.
