Ensuring Inclusive Recruitment

Recruitment is a process that is impaired by our human errors and judgement which impacts heavily on diversity and inclusion in the workplace. This is a topic that comes up most often as being affected by low diversity levels, as this is where it appears in the most obvious way.
