Diversity Hiring Toolkit

In line with our commitment to becoming a DEIB force in the recruiting market, we released a comprehensive and free Diversity Hiring Toolkit. SmartRecruiters’ intention is to leverage our resources to support any company that wants to truly increase the diversity makeup of its workforce.

This toolkit includes:

  • Four pillars and 12 standards of DEIB Hiring: We defined four pillars including brand diversity equity and organizational support, each with accompanying standards, to provide diversity hiring guidance for TA teams, ourselves included.
  • Diversity Hiring Maturity Model: We created a four-level Diversity Hiring Maturity Model for TA teams to better evaluate their diversity hiring efforts in key areas.
  • Diversity Hiring Assessment: This questionnaire helps organizations quickly understand where they fall on the Diversity Hiring Maturity model and provides tailored advice based on their answers.
