Open Hiring Creates Diversity

But to do so, employers must overhaul nearly every aspect of the hiring process. We advise clients to view hiring less as a search for talent, but rather as an invitation to apply. A search can imply a closed process, or at best a targeted effort going after specific insiders. But an invitation implies an open-door process that seeks broad exposure, shares the backstory, and presents a mission-aligned opportunity. In the coming weeks, we'll talk specifically about what employers can do to facilitate an inclusive and welcoming hiring process that invites and ultimately yields diverse and qualified applicant pools.
