Inclusion is a key issue for any recruitment professional, with an increasing need to ensure that the UK workforce is truly representative.
But how can you make sure your business is doing all it can to attract, and retain, a wide-range of talent?
To give some guidance on how to make these changes, The Guardian Jobs has produced a guide to help you foster a more inclusive recruitment process, and how to retain those new recruits.
Writer and author Kerry Hudson looks beyond London and advises on the benefits of a financially and geographically accessible recruitment process as she seeks to shed light on how to make your hiring as accessible and inclusive as possible.
Hudson looks at the importance of UK regional diversity, including a look at the London-centric publishing industry and Penguin Random House shares what it has been doing to make its recruitment more inclusive.
The guide looks at technology’s role in improving your longlist of first-round interviewees, and examines financial inclusion. The cost of preparing applications, attending an interview and attending a second or third one soon mounts up. What are you as an employer doing to attract an inclusive range of candidates, regardless of how much they can afford?
Hudson also turns her attention to how best to retain your new recruits once they have accepted the offer of a job. She examines research that looks into the cost of recruitment and the, ultimately, cost of replacing a “bad hire”.
