Diversity & Inclusion

Diversity & Inclusion

At Talented Recruitment Group, we believe that a diverse and inclusive workforce is key to fostering innovation, creativity, and a thriving workplace environment. As a business, we commit to promoting diversity and inclusion in all aspects of our operations, particularly in our recruitment processes.

This applies to all employees, contractors, consultants, and candidates associated with Talented Recruitment Group. It covers recruitment, selection, onboarding, training, promotion, and all other employment practices.

Talented Recruitment Group are committed to:

  • Respect and Fairness: Treating all individuals with respect and providing equal opportunities regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, age, religion, disability, sexual orientation, socioeconomic background, or any other characteristic protected by law.
  • Inclusive Recruitment Practices: Ensuring our recruitment processes are free from bias and barriers. We strive to attract a diverse pool of candidates by advertising job openings widely and using inclusive language.
  • Bias-Free Selection: Implementing structured interviews and standardised assessment criteria to minimise unconscious bias in the selection process.
  • Support and Development: Providing training and development opportunities to all employees, fostering a culture of continuous learning and inclusion.
  • Accountability and Improvement: Regularly reviewing and assessing our diversity and inclusion practices to identify areas for improvement and ensure compliance with this policy.

 

To achieve our diversity and inclusion goals:

  • Diverse Talent Sourcing: Partner with organisations, educational institutions, and community groups that support underrepresented communities to expand our talent pipeline.
  • Training Programs: Provide regular training for staff on diversity, equity, and inclusion topics, including unconscious bias, cultural competency, and inclusive leadership.
  • Inclusive Job Descriptions: Use gender-neutral and inclusive language in job descriptions and avoid requirements that are not essential to the role, which may inadvertently exclude certain groups.
  • Structured Interviewing: Use a consistent set of questions for all candidates applying for the same position and develop clear scoring rubrics to evaluate their responses.
  • Candidate Support: Offer support to candidates throughout the recruitment process, including accommodations for disabilities and information on our commitment to diversity and inclusion.
  • Employee Resource Groups: Encourage the formation of Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) to provide support and networking opportunities for employees from diverse backgrounds.

 

Roles and Responsibilities:

  • Management: Ensure that diversity and inclusion goals are integrated into business strategies and hold themselves accountable for the implementation of this policy.
  • Human Resources: Lead the development and implementation of diversity and inclusion initiatives, monitor progress, and report on outcomes.
  • Recruiters and Hiring Managers: Adhere to inclusive hiring practices and participate in ongoing diversity and inclusion training.
  • All Employees: Support and promote a diverse and inclusive workplace culture through daily interactions and behaviours.

 

Monitoring and Reporting

We will regularly collect and analyse data on our recruitment processes to monitor diversity and inclusion outcomes. This includes tracking the demographic makeup of our applicant pool, hires, promotions, and retention rates. We will report our findings annually and use this data to inform our diversity and inclusion strategies.

Feedback and Improvement

We encourage feedback from all employees and candidates regarding our diversity and inclusion practices. Feedback can be provided through support@talentedrecruitmentgroup.com. We are committed to continuous improvement and will use this feedback to enhance our policies and practices.
