There has been an unbelievable amount of change over the past year. From a global pandemic to social and political unrest to a total change in how we work around the world. Throughout these tumultuous times, Entelo has worked to remain a constant force for good.
The demand and importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives in organizations has never been higher than in 2020.
The global pandemic has disrupted work in ways unseen in centuries.
Entelo’s commitment to diversity runs deep, as does our relentless desire to make the world a more inclusive place. As the recognized industry leader in diversity technology since 2014, “diversity” and “inclusion” have never been buzz-words to us. They’re core values held by our teams, and drive our decisions, from Engineering to Customer Success. From mitigating bias in sourcing to building diversity within talent pools, there’s a reason that we power many of the Fortune 500 on their journey to building a more diverse and inclusive workforce.
2020 has cast a glaring light on the disparities running rampant within our communities. While these systemic inequalities are no revelation to the communities victimized by them, for others in our society the last few months have been eye opening – leaving many asking how the year can be 2020 with seemingly little progress towards true equity.
2020 has cast a glaring light on the racial and socioeconomic inequalities running rampant within our communities. The COVID-19 pandemic sweeping the world and our nation, has disproportionately affected African Americans and People of Color, who – due to gross economic disparities – make up the largest percentage of essential workers. This has pulled back the curtain on the realities of systemic racism and the persecution of the Black community, with an intensified spotlight on police brutality, and the growing Black Lives Matter movement across the country and globe demanding meaningful change.
As the Director of Talent, Diversity & Inclusion at DonorsChoose.org, Margie Cadet spends a lot of her time examining and eliminating opportunities for human bias within her team’s recruiting process.
If you’ve ever experienced the anxiety that comes along with a job interview, you’ve probably also tried to stave off your fears by asking yourself, “What’s the worst that can happen?”
It’s no secret that technical talent is in high-demand. In 2018, unemployment for software engineers weighed in at about 1.6%, significantly lower than the national average of ~4%. With the demand for technical talent far exceeding the supply, recruiters are spending a large part of their day sifting through online profiles and reaching out to passive candidates with a discouraging return rate.
It’s Veterans Day. How have your veteran recruitment goals done this year? Are you achieving the growth in this highly skilled and disciplined workforce that you had set out to do 11 months ago? If not, here are a few tips to send an authentic message to veterans.
Data science is at the core of Entelo, improving search relevance (Entelo Search), fine-tuning candidate recommendations (Envoy), and powering outreach and candidate insights (Entelo Track and Entelo Insights). More specifically, machine learning drives these automated and data-driven features – constantly running in the background to make Entelo smarter and more efficient. However, if improperly used, machine learning has the potential to introduce biases in the system. In this article, I describe how Entelo eliminates those potential biases.
As the Head of Diversity & Inclusion at Dentsu Aegis, DK Barkley plays a pivotal role in the direction of the company’s overall diversity strategy. At the start of this year, his team identified two main areas of focus – increasing female representation in leadership and hiring and promoting talent from underrepresented groups.
New recruiting technologies hitting the market today have unlocked the potential to completely revolutionize recruiting as we know it. But with the promise of new technologies must come a dedication to learning complex tools and changing behavior across the organization. And if your team happens to implement many new tools in one fell swoop, then team downtime and your laundry list of training to-dos only snowballs.
At Entelo, we firmly believe diversity is the true foundation of all great companies. We also believe there is much more technology can do to help organizations build this foundation. That’s why we spent countless hours interviewing recruiters, picking the brains of industry leaders, and facilitating discussion panels to understand the biggest D&I challenges facing talent organizations. These conversations helped us to better identify the obstacles keeping recruiting teams from reaching their D&I goals and ultimately develop new functionality to solve for these pain points.
Today we are excited to announce four new additions to Entelo’s diversity toolkit: Diverse Pipeline Reports, Diversity Highlights, Inclusive Language Insights, and Peer-Based Skills.
