HR, Bias and Cultural Competence: From Recruiting to Retaining a Diverse Workforce

PDI-C | Tuesday, 1:30 PM

Track: Employment Practices (EP)  |  Level: Intermediate

Session Overview


The major work for many organizations today involves finding ways to break down cross-cultural barriers and unconscious bias in the talent management life cycle, if they are to deliver on goals for increasing and leveraging talent from diverse backgrounds. Yet, organizations often lack the skills and frames to understand talented candidates and employees on their own terms, to address bias in the talent life cycle and to understand how best to develop talent to its fullest potential. In this session, presenters will share their knowledge on how to   recruit, engage, retain and develop a culturally diverse workforce. Examples from each stage of the talent management life cycle will be shown, particularly, from inside Aon’s talent development and retention work. The speakers will collaborate with participants to explore best practices for integrating culturally competent approaches to transform HR processes and achieve a more inclusive workplace.
