Diversity - hot topic or over used word? Whatever your view on this, so many of us are guilty of hiring who we know. It’s hard to disagree with Lee when he says we all need to build more diverse networks.
Lee Higgins, Founder of Diverse Talent Networks, shares with us why we should think ‘culture add’ instead of ‘culture fit’ and why thinking value aligned will allow for more diversity of thought - a topic we are very passionate about at the Amplified Group.
Here’s the key takeaways and book recommendation:
· Widen your circle and diversify your network
· Be proactive so when it is hiring time you are starting with a more diverse pool of talent
· Think about culture add – even if hiring through traditional means. Who’s adding to that culture?
· Recognise that you have more influence than you think
We like Lee’s comment, “Make change happen for good” with actions instead of window dressing.
