7. Uncovering diversity

In this programme, you learn the true meaning of diversity, not just unconscious bias. In recruiting, it’s time to take the focus away from token gestures about who we hire, and align the business on how our differences make us stronger. Explore tactics that work to move the needle, as well as thought-provoking case studies.

6. Make great hiring decisions

In this quick programme, John Vlastelica of Recruiting Toolbox answers the most difficult question: “How do I decide who to hire?” – Your interview process should have given you the evidence you need to evaluate against the hiring criteria, and enable you and your interview panel to make the right hiring decision. Learn how to make that decision with confidence.

3. Inclusion: The will vs the skill

Diversity campaigner, executive search consultant Torin Elllis’ work on Inclusion now meets recruiting practice. Diversity is not only your strength, but it’s your USP: as every client your organisation does business with expects and wants diversity, is your business prepared to deliver it? If not, you’re losing your edge. In this mission, Torin will take on the will for inclusion, versus the skill to make it happen.

2. Diversity + Inclusion + Talent

Joe Gerstandt is a world-renowned Diversity and Inclusion leader, and brings his remarkable insights on how we need to work to a new talent equation to get the best from talent, as well as promote the best possible collaboration by understanding difference and an inclusive environment.

1. Hiring for executive and senior roles

Executive Hiring is not rocket science, but there is an art to executive search. The subtle differences from standard requisitions when hiring for very senior and executive roles come from the seniority of the stakeholders, the consequences of making the wrong hiring decision, and the long courtship of candidates when headhunting. In this mission, you’ll learn how to plan and prepare for an executive search assignment, the data and insights required to support hiring strategy, and techniques for engaging senior and executive talent.
