Our long-term partner has a continued goal to create a diverse workforce that closely aligns with their local patient population. In 2020, our partner focused on a renewed effort to increase the diversity of their leadership team.
Our partner asked our team to help implement a DEI recruitment plan to help strengthen diversity hiring. We worked together with our partner to understand their overall diversity goals, and then developed a specific plan to impact the diversification of their leadership team. Some key implementations that helped us to recruit a diverse slate of candidates included:
- Updated intake calls with hiring managers to encourage conversations around inclusivity/diversity hiring
- Launching a behavioral interview/implicit bias training for all interviewers
- Community partnerships to deepen our DEI relationships
- AIRS Diversity Recruiter Certification
Through implementing a number of DEI-focused recruitment tactics, our partner was able to increase their diversity hires by more than 40%+ over two years.
