Social mobility masterclass for employers #2: Hiring

Hiring the best talent, with Accenture
Tuesday 25 August 2020, 3pm
The second session in our employers’ masterclass series is Hiring, which is all about reaching talent – attracting individuals from less privileged backgrounds who may not traditionally apply for roles within your organisation, yet may be able to make a significant contribution in future.
And once you have attracted those diverse applicants, ensuring there is an open recruitment process and no additional barriers unfairly impacting a candidate’s success (such as unconscious bias at interview).
This session will take the form of:
– a short presentation by the Social Mobility Commission;
– in-depth case-study from Accenture;
– interactive workshop in which to explore ideas, share insights and tackle some of the challenges.
On the back of this workshop we will be sharing a checklist to help you refine your ideas and develop a ‘best-practice’ recruitment process.
In the meantime, you can also view our employers’ toolkit, which will give you practical ideas on how to ensure recruitment pathways are open to all – such as briefing agencies on your commitment to diversity, offering flexible working or non-graduate routes where possible.
We hope that you will join us for what should be an insightful and inspiring session for employers looking to hire a diverse pool of talent.

Employers play a key role in #socialmobility outcomes for many.
They determine where they set up their business, the types of job roles they create, and how and who they recruit; the income set by employers impacts living standards, pension contributions, as well as spending power in their local economy; they also play an important role in the health and wellbeing of employees.
However, with each part of the UK having an individual identity, history and economy, impacting its local population and their opportunities, the challenges to social mobility, and the solutions, may differ from region to region.
That’s where we think the use of our new #Data Explorer tool can help – join us at this event on 7 June at 12pm for employers to find out how you can utilise our new tool to understand your workforce distribution; provide insight for outreach activity and hiring activity; and to serve and support regional communities.
