About this webinar

When it comes to recruiting, there's so much pressure to hire to talent that it's very tempting to do whatever it takes to hire the most skilled, most sought after candidates. So difficult, in fact, that companies stray from their core values, their employer brand or their mission statement in order to make hires happen. 

To complicate matters, unconscious bias in the hiring process undermines evidence-based hiring decisions and leads to more homogenous organizations and wage disparity. The result is organizations that are less strategic, less innovative and therefore, less attractive to top talent. In fact, 69% of candidates in Hired's 2019 Wage Inequality Report said they would be more interested in working for a company that publicly publishes their internal salary data. 

While diversity, equity and inclusion are often part of a company's public mission, this webinar will help  explain how to make that mission a reality and make you an agent for change in your company.
