Why Diversity Hiring Has Become a Top Priority in HR: A Talk with AST’s Director of Global Talent Acquisition
Have you given considerable thought recently to the workforce diversity in your organization?
Hiring practices for organizations large and small have experienced significant change. Job seekers no longer turn to newspaper classifieds, but rely on online job boards and social networking sites, such as LinkedIn, and organizations around the globe are focusing on diversity hiring practices as a standard across HR. As with all other aspects of business, modern technology and automation have changed the way we recruit, hire, and retain top talent – and bigger changes are on the horizon. These developments challenge the very nature of every role in the Human Resource (HR) department, demanding that today’s HR functions strategically and plays a critical role in making business decisions.
Among the efforts to modernize hiring across industries is the implementation of diversity hiring.
