There is room for all people, even when it comes to the job market. Thus, it is important to be increasingly careful, attentive, and sensitive when looking at the recruitment and selection of professionals.
A good leader must know how to encourage diversity and inclusion beyond just a simple number
Why is it essential to invest in diversity in recruitment and selection?
Companies often already know what they want in a professional. Taking a position goes beyond skills and technical skills, the behavioral profile makes all the difference when hiring and training.
The greatest difficulty for companies is still the lack of knowledge. Despite having an understanding of the subject, few companies have delved into the subject. That is why it is important to know how to differentiate diversity from inclusion. A diverse environment has different people living in it, whereas an inclusive environment is receptive and safe for everyone to be themselves.
Unfortunately, some companies still consider factors such as age, race, sexual orientation, gender identity, and disability, among others, as decisive factors when hiring. To overcome this type of pre-established concept, it is necessary to implant a collective conscience in the company, through conversations, training, policy creation, etc.
Bosses and managers need to be prepared to handle all types of profiles. A good leader must be able to encourage diversity and inclusion beyond just a simple number. Likewise, the recruitment and selection process of companies must make their inclusive stance clear.
After all, why invest in diversity when recruiting and selecting?
It is possible to stand out in the job market with a more diverse team and an inclusive environment
It is essential, above all, to have a work environment with opportunities for all people. Therefore, promoting diversity in recruitment and selection provides a more dynamic, creative, and respectful work environment for all people.
In the same way, potential investors see more potential in a company that respects these precepts of inclusion and diversity. After all, every organization has a social function as well.
Due to the opportunity for healthy exchanges with employees, it is possible to have new points of view. We live in a time in which discussions are necessary. To put ourselves in the current context in a correct way, which does not hurt others, a diverse work environment is ideal for healthy and diverse discussions.
A diverse work environment makes understanding and acceptance essential on a day-to-day basis, making the team tolerant and empathetic. It is possible to stand out in the job market with a more diverse team and an inclusive environment. The best results appear for teams that work with the most engagement and have the best ideas.
However, we know that there is a long way to go in practically all companies, not only in Brazil but all over the world, so that diversity and inclusion are practiced. One of the key elements for this to happen is the Human Resources area, which needs to rethink the way it conducts its selection processes and, above all, develops its culture so that all profiles feel accepted, welcomed, respected, and with equal opportunities in the work environment. 🏳️🌈🌈
