Course Overview:


Inclusion is a key issue for any recruitment / talent management professional, with an increasing need to ensure that the workforce is truly representative.

How can you make sure your business is doing all it can to attract, and retain, a wide-range of talent?

For organisations to be competitive and sustainable they need to be able to produce creative solutions, develop innovative new products, and capture new markets—all of which diverse teams are proven to do better than homogenous teams.

Limited talent pools, ineffective processes and policies and the biases that we all carry with us can make this difficult, leaving us with a limited candidate pool rather than a diverse set of talented candidates of varying genders, backgrounds, and experiences.

The Inclusive Recruitment workshop is meant for busy Recruiters and Hiring Managers and is applicable across the globe, the modules offers bite-sized lessons and practical strategies that can be easily implemented.
