Building a More Diverse Workforce with Clu's Inclusive Recruitment Platform
Updated: Apr 11
Diversity and inclusion in recruitment have become major business focuses in recent years. Companies are realising that a diverse workforce is not only the right thing to do, but it also makes good business sense.
The business case for better diversity and inclusion in recruitment is well documented, but results have remained slow because we have not managed to rethink recruitment. Until now.
Clu, the inclusive recruitment platform, has redesigned key elements of the talent lifecycle to help organisations get great at engaging diverse talent.
We help organisations reduce risk, gain confidence and scale results related to diverse talent attraction. Our market-leading inclusion, accessibility and safeguarding features significantly reduce barriers to participation typically encountered by systemically underutilised and underestimated talent.
The Business Case for Diversity and Inclusion in Recruitment
Diversity recruiting, diversity recruitment, diversity in recruitment, diversity and inclusion in recruitment – these are all terms used to describe ensuring that a company's workforce represents a wide range of backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives. But why is this important?
Firstly, diversity and inclusion are essential for innovation. When people with different experiences and perspectives work together, they are more likely to come up with creative solutions and ideas. This can give a business a competitive edge in an increasingly globalised and fast-changing economy.
Secondly, a diverse workforce is more likely to understand and meet the needs of a diverse customer base. By having employees from different backgrounds and cultures, businesses can better understand the needs and preferences of a wider range of customers and create products and services that meet those needs.
Thirdly, diversity and inclusion are essential for employee retention and satisfaction. When employees feel valued and respected for who they are, they are more likely to be engaged and motivated at work. This can lead to lower turnover rates and higher levels of productivity.
Finally, diversity and inclusion are also essential for corporate social responsibility. By promoting diversity and inclusion in recruitment, businesses can demonstrate their commitment to fairness and equality, and build stronger relationships with customers and communities.
