The summer is over and with September upon us, we all have a tendency to get into a "back to work" mentality. And with the coming and going of Labor Day, a holiday that celebrates workers in America, what better time to focus on diversity hiring?
We begin this month with Diversity Recruitment Strategies. If you are looking to diversify your work force, this article is a must read; outlining strategies you can employ to attract and encourage workplace inclusion.
Why is diversity hiring so important and why focus hiring resources and dollars on job seekers, such as veterans or older workers? Valuing diversity accomplishes many goals, from meeting EEO requirements to creating a culture that mirrors our global marketplace. Our article, Prevent Discrimination and Value Diversity outlines why developing a diversity recruitment strategy is critical to business planning today.
September also has us observing Grandparent's Day, a good time to look further into diversity recruiting and the aging workforce. Older workers play a vital role, and even though the unemployment rates for this sector may be slightly lower than their younger counterparts; as many as 40% of boomers (AARP) say they intend to remain in the labor force well past retirement. These job seekers will abound and our article, Hiring Older Workers outlines why you should continue to consider senior hiring.
