Panel Discussion

Humanity or technology - what’s the key to a more Inclusive hiring, promotion, and retention?

Perfecting protocols lead to real results. Numerous organizations have resorted to new technologies that make the applicant screening process more efficient. However, what is the protocol that the algorithm follows? How adequate are the presumptions on which our screening technology operates? As in life, so in algorithms, organizations risk overlooking non-inclusive biases spilling over into the automated processes. Moreover, as final decisions are still made by individuals, organizations must be aware that every decision made solely is inevitably affected by individual biases. Find out what problems are faced by teams around the world by unarticulated protocols, be they technological or human.

Employee Benefits Equity as retention factor

Employee Benefits can be a key deciding factor for potential employees who are choosing their next workplace and a morale booster for existing employees, especially those who identify as Black, Indigeious and People of Color (BIPOC) and within other underrepresented communities. However, organizations that do not provide equity and education through benefits offerings, will fall short of decreasing the disparity of health outcomes for marginalized employees and their families.

The missing link of creating a really inclusive workplace for employee’s retention.

In this keynote Valentina Kordi will address why, although so many organizations are nowadays willing to embrace inclusivity as part of their culture that will increase employee retention and engagement, it still hasn’t been effectively integrated and successfully achieved and how it can turn into an ordinary behavior in the workplace, in practice.
