Why Recruiting Diverse Candidates Matters to Employers

Posted September 09, 2015 by

Diversity should not be ruled out when it comes to recruiting job candidates. Employers can achieve their goals in diversity by hiring people with different ideas and points of view who can relate to their clients and/or customers. A diverse workforce keeps workers more engaged and improves job performance.

To help explore these issues, College Recruiter is hosting a College Recruiting Bootcamp on LGBT and other diversity hiring issues on Tuesday, September 29th at the Twilio headquarters in San Francisco. Join us.

“A lack of diversity breeds groupthink, which prevents companies from taking healthy risks. A lack of diversity not only does employees an injustice – customers are, in the end, also affected by this sluggishness. A diverse team provides an array of life experiences and worldviews, which will regularly produce a much-needed mix of new concepts and ideas. A diverse culture produces high levels of not only employee engagement, but also innovation and productivity.”
