ScotlandIS, in partnership with Equate Scotland and Scotland Skills Development Scotland, is delighted to be providing a free online session about inclusive recruitment practices specifically designed for small and medium enterprises within the tech ecosystem.
Workplace inclusion in today’s environment is a critical topic that tech employers can no longer see as “a nice to have”. Inclusive recruitment is a vital component of a broader approach. By ensuring that inclusive recruitment practices are embedded within the organisation, not only are we adhering to our legal duties but also ensuring we are tapping into a wider talent pool, fostering diversity of people, experiences, and innovation.
Inclusive recruitment refers to the processes and practices used to attract, interview, and hire a diverse pool of talent. This is to ensure we can reduce bias at different stages of the recruitment process and ensure the best-qualified people get hired for positions regardless of gender, ethnicity, or any other protected characteristics.
Why is inclusive recruitment important when hiring?
- Widen your talent pool to have a diverse pool of candidates to choose from. This is to ensure you don’t miss out on talents.
- Show your commitment to diversity & inclusion. Send a positive message to candidates and showcase that you want to create an environment that will help them learn and succeed.
- Set a positive environment from the start as the experience during the interview process will influence how candidates feel about joining your organisation.
What will you learn?
- Increase your understanding of what inclusive recruitment is within the Scottish tech ecosystem.
- Learn about current best practices throughout the recruitment process and know how to apply them within your organisation.
- Develop skills to review your own recruitment processes and identify short-term and long-term actions.
- Where to find resource and guidance to continue your learning.
