As the war for design escalates, businesses need to invest time in developing diversity and inclusion strategies to attract and retain top design talent—from within Australia, and globally.
Fostering a diverse and inclusive workforce is critically important to remain competitive in today’s market. It is widely documented that businesses that proactively build diverse organisations outperform their competitors, and are more likely to attract and retain talented professionals.
By recruiting professionals from a diverse range of backgrounds, across various levels of seniority, businesses gain a competitive edge through a broader range of perspectives, insights and experiences.
You may think your workplace culture is inclusive, but is this truly how you are perceived by your staff and by the talent you seek to attract?
With so many available career opportunities and options in design, businesses must consider more than ever before what makes them the most attractive option. These businesses should be seeking out recruitment consulting partners who support their endeavours, in principle and in practice.
