Reach is a unique Inclusive Talent Platform which supports Inclusive Organisations to attract and build a diverse talent pool and recruit more inclusively.
Many organisations cite difficulty attracting diverse talent as the leading cause of the lack of diversity within their organisation, and while some sectors and roles have well documented challenges in this area, many organisations do not have programmes in place to attract and recruit diverse candidates.
Robert Walters (2017) reported that 85% of employers identified diversity as a priority for their organisation, yet:
of employers do not have programmes in place to attract and recruit diverse candidates
of employers believe their current recruitment tools are ineffective at helping diverse candidates find their company
of employers have a website which are accessible to candidates with disabilities, yet 72% of employers recognise that an accessible website would be effective in helping them access new talent pools
