Atlanta’s home for public radio, WABE, recently featured a “Closer Look with Rose Scott” segment that addressed workplace diversity. Randstad’s chief diversity and inclusion officer, Audra Jenkins, joined the conversation.
With the larger discussion centering on defining (or redefining) the workplace, Jenkins discussed the practices and measures that companies can take to ensure an inclusive environment. “[The conversation] is now about how do we elevate diversity to a strategy, transforming your culture to be inclusive,” she noted.
“You can’t say you have diversity if you don’t have inclusion. Workforce diversity should be embedded into your business. It should be what you are going to do to your culture, what you are going to do to attract candidates, to be competitive. [Sometimes we need to] have a deeper dive with our customers who [seek diverse candidates.] We educate our clients on what we can and can’t do, and what we believe in as a diverse company.”
That’s just a sample of what you’ll hear when you listen to this insightful segment. You can also click here to learn more about how Randstad Sourceright’s diversity and inclusion solutions help your company drive better business outcomes.
