10.00am until 11.00am
How (and why) to recruit disabled candidates
Disabled candidates are premium candidates. This has always been the case, but post-Covid, businesses will increasingly need talent who are used to working in new and different ways, and can bring creative and innovative ideas with them
We explore issues including:
- Why employ disabled people? (It’s about talent, not pity)
- Attracting disabled candidates (why would they want to work for you?)
- Inclusive advertising (fishing in the same talent pools brings you the same kind of talent)
- Fair shortlisting (CVs reflect privilege, not potential)
- Assessment methods (finding the best person for the job, not the best person at blagging at interviews)
- Making the hiring decision (with as little bias as possible)
Who should attend?
This session may appeal to non-profit and public sector professionals in recruitment, talent acquisition, HR or Diversity and Inclusion.
