Inclusive recruitment involves creating a fair and equitable process that extends employment opportunities to individuals from all backgrounds. A meticulously designed inclusive recruitment strategy cultivates a robust talent pool sourced from a variety of candidates. Getting recruitment right is paramount for employers.
