View resources

Governing an organisation or company involves making decisions about how to recruit the best talent possible for the job. Ensure that you draw up a recruitment plan that has diversity and inclusion at its heart — and manage the process from role conception through to staff career development in a holistic manner.

How do I do it?

This is a huge and fast-developing area, but here are a few stating points to get you going:

  • Work on recruitment and retention in one
  • Create a diversity and inclusion role to help mange the recruitment and retention process — don’t rely solely on HR
  • Deal with unconscious bias
  • Ensure that your job descriptions are accessible and inclusive
  • Ensure that your interview panel is diverse and representative
  • Draw up a workforce development and cultural safety policy
  • Measure, survey and monitor your workplace regularly
  • Create benchmark data
