ICAEW Diversity and Inclusion conversations: Inclusive recruitment
The first opportunity to make a workplace more inclusive is the recruitment process. Organisations benefit from ensuring inclusion is covered at each stage of the employee life cycle to ensure access to the best talent across all characteristics.

In this webinar, Bailey Bell, Psychologist at Pearn Kandola, discusses the importance of an inclusive recruitment process for Accountancy firms and takes a deep-dive into three core aspects:

• Attraction – A commonly overlooked stage within the employee lifecycle is the attraction stage. This includes the subtle cues that potential candidates see through an organisation’s website, social media, job adverts and policies, which can impact whether they decide to apply or not. Therefore, organisations need to be aware of these cues and take steps to ensure they are not inadvertently excluding some people. Within the webinar, Bailey will explore barriers to inclusion during the attraction stage and what organisations can do to attract diverse talent.
• Selection Process – Explore where potential bias can creep into the selection process and the practical steps that hiring managers and HR can take to ensure they are mitigating the risk of bias.
• Onboarding – Organisations can sometimes fail to plan the onboarding stage of the recruitment process, which can result in new starters feeling excluded and ill-equipped to do their role. Discover how we can all take steps to manage our biases and invest time in bringing new starters up to speed and setting them up for success.
