During the "Week of the Anonymous CV", age, gender, origin, dates and name were eliminated from resumes being evaluated by their clients. The only information the consultants of Unique gave to the hiring managers was the person's experience and education. Unique was seeking to give more attention to the skills, experience, and educational attributes of a candidate for a position; not the factors that may exclude qualified candidates based on bias.
Unique's Operational Director, Diana
Magielsen, expressed her thoughts on discrimination poignantly: "At Unique we
want to take a stand against distrust,
prejudice, stereotyping and exclusion. Unfortunately, discrimination is a persistent social problem that we cannot solve alone.
But when organizations are determined to reflect society's diversity, we can make a valuable contribution."
Fostering a culture of inclusion
Recruit Group seeks to challenge the cultural meanings that people apply to one another - intentionally or unconsciously. We believe empowering a diverse team of people to pursue their passions, guided by equality
in the workplace, is the best way to
strengthen any team.
Inclusivity is integral to successful organizations
When actions are taken to promote inclusive and sustainable workplaces, the results demonstrate the benefits of diversity in the workplace and its social impact. Our mission is to help people achieve their passions, regardless of race, gender, age, sexual orientation, religious affiliation, or disability. And in doing so, inclusivity becomes an integral element of successful organizations. Inclusivity allows businesses to benefit from having the most skilled employees on their teams, generating a wealth of diverse ideas and avenues toward growth.
