Course overview

This course is part of a series during which AbilityNet’s workplace inclusion experts will discuss the importance of embedding inclusivity at every stage of employee journey, starting with the recruitment process. 

The recruitment process is the first impression most candidates will have of your organisation. According to Glassdoor, 76% of hiring decision makers say attracting quality candidates is their number one challenge. To attract the widest talent pool, you need to review each stage through the eyes of diverse candidates to make sure you are not inadvertently excluding anyone or giving them cause to decide against applying for your role.  

The course is interactive and practical and involves real life case studies and candidate feedback to help articulate the benefits and how technology can be used to help achieve this. Attendees will access and use AbilityNet’s employee inclusion journey GAP analysis to help them identify gaps in their own process and understand tech powered solutions that can help. 

What you will learn

All the stages of recruitment from job advertisement, to application process, to pre interview, the interview itself and offer stage.

Attendees will receive a link to the recording of the training to watch back at your leisure after the event. (And you’ll always have access to the latest advice as we will update the content on the link when the training is repeated in the future.)

"Very insightful and informative."  
"A well delivered and well-paced webinar. Liked the polls and colourful examples." 
“I’ve found the sessions useful in bringing the range of accessibility issues to our attention."
