In this month’s edition, we are talking all things diversity in the technology and recruiting world, fun fact: we’re hiring for a data engineer & workplace admin, and as always, if you’re looking to round out your team with top talent, contact us below!
Diversity in Recruiting
According to a recent Forbes article, talent acquisition professionals see diversity hiring as both the biggest trend and key challenge, regardless of the role or company size. Nearly 80% of talent professionals ranked diversity hiring as the most important trend in the recruiting industry for 2022.
For April, we are setting our sites on ways we can increase diversity hiring. Bringing awareness to this profound shift in the recruiting industry is an ideal way to increase performance and creates a larger, more varied candidate pool.
Here are a couple ways to diversify your hiring needs:
1. Auditing Job Ads
Study the demographic of your previous job ads and understand which targets it hit. Using inclusive language or even writing a more specific ad that appeals to candidates from different backgrounds is a great way to show candidates why your company is a great fit for them.
2. Encourage Diverse Employee Referrals
We all know that our employees all come with diverse networks, and creating a employee referral benefit program is a fantastic way to target a specific demographic while also incentivizing current employees.
3. Create an Employer Brand that Showcases Diversity
Valuing people and opinions in all walks of life is a pivotal way to create a diverse brand. Showcasing the stories of these individuals and how they feel valued in their current workplace is a great way for diverse candidates to see the personality of your company.

Young Workers Rake In Biggest Wage Gains in Tight Labor Market
The country’s youngest workers are securing the fastest wage increases of any age group, the only one whose gains have outpaced inflation. Their pay progress reflects employers’ strong demand for labor as the economy recovers from the pandemic’s effects, particularly for many service jobs, such as at restaurants and retail stores, that tend to employ younger workers.
Older Americans Head Back to the Workforce Amid Inflation and Volatile Stocks
A growing number of retirees are heading back to work. In February, 3% of retired workers made the decision to return to work, marking the highest percentage to date during the pandemic and a continuation of a trend that started in the spring of last year, Nick Bunker, the director of economic research at Indeed Hiring Lab, told Yahoo Money.
A Little-Noticed Reason Workers Quit: Too Little Work
American workers quit a record 47 million jobs last year. They quit for better pay, or to be their own boss, or to work around child-care needs, or from worry about catching Covid-19. Some were burned-out and just wanted a break. There’s another reason, less recognized: Their employer wouldn’t give them enough hours.
