Diversity in Recruitment CourseEquality, Diversity and Inclusion are key considerations in any organisation in respect of recruitment. The considerations extend to the entire recruitment process from placing and wording advertisements, drafting interview questions and conducting the interview / selection process itself. 

In 2020, whilst the diversity of job applicants continues to evolve, much confusion often still exists in respect of what you should and should not do (or ask) as part of the recruitment process. 


How can McKenzie help ? 

We provide a one day specialist workshop covering all aspects of Equality and Diversity as part of the recruitment process. Our interactive event is designed to impart the necessary knowledge, skills, behaviour and confidence required to successfully embrace Equality and Diversity as part of the recruitment process whilst promoting a modern and enlightened recruitment experience.

The event can be delivered as a public workshop or in-house where we will specifically tailor all approaches to reflect your own internal recruitment processes and procedures.
