Odgers Berndtson to hold webinar on how to implement an inclusive recruitment process

Odgers Berndtson, the global executive search firm, is holding a webinar on how to implement an inclusive recruitment process on 25th May at 3pm. The event will be hosted by Sue Johnson, Managing Partner of the Inclusion & Diversity Practice at the firm.

The webinar will examine how organisations of all sizes can ensure their recruitment process is genuinely inclusive at every stage of the process from role definition and advertising through to offer and onboarding. It will focus on the full spectrum of inclusivity including ethnicity, gender, mental health conditions and personality traits.

During the webinar attendees will learn how to:

  • Maximise the inclusivity of their whole recruitment and retention process.
  • Access, attract, and retain a broader talent pool to their organisations.
  • Identify exactly where to mitigate unconscious bias and upskill hiring managers.

The event will also highlight key research findings from inclusive recruitment pilot studies conducted by Odgers Berndtson with brands including Burger King, Cancer Research and esure.

All webinar attendees will be offered the first stage of Odgers Berndtson’s recently launched Inclusive Recruitment Diagnostic without charge until 15th June. The first stage consists of a questionnaire that assesses an organisation’s maturity levels through the six steps of recruitment.

Commenting on the inclusive recruitment webinar, Sue Johnson, Managing Partner of the Inclusion & Diversity Practice, Odgers Berndtson, said:

‘The webinar is open to anyone who is passionate about creating a truly inclusive recruitment process and experience for their organisation.At Odgers Berndtson we know from our extensive research that recognising and embracing the individual needs of all new hires is much more likely to make them feel engaged from day one and consistently perform at an elevated level. We also know that the cost of getting a new hire wrong can equate to three times the candidate’s salary in recruitment costs and lost revenue. With an ever-increasing number of candidates seeking roles that are sensitive to their individual needs, there has never been a better time to explore a fully inclusive recruitment process.’
