Inclusive Recruitment: Livestream Showcase 6 June 2023

New faces, new ideas: a free livestream event showcasing experiential training on inclusive recruitment

The benefits of a diverse workforce are widely known. Getting recruitment right doesn’t just give you access to a wide talent pool; it can be a game changer.

That’s why we developed a half-day livestream training programme with a dynamic blend of live-action and filmed drama, polling, group exercises, and powerful conversations to show people how to use inclusive practices throughout the recruitment process.

It’s a highly interactive, impactful experience that will improve your recruitment processes and inspire participants to make a positive difference.

On Tuesday 6 June 2023, we’ll be showcasing selected content on Zoom. There’s no charge, but places are limited. Don’t miss your chance to experience the impact of our experiential training approach for yourself. It’s definitely not what you’re used to.

The programme

Using realistic, dramatised content with experienced actors (participants don’t act), electronic polling, facilitated group exercises and discussions from our programme, we’ll demonstrate how our learners explore the key elements of Inclusive Recruitment through livestream training to achieve these learning outcomes:

  • Understand how a diverse and inclusive workforce benefits an organisation;
  • Recognise the importance of creating a good first impression and the implications of getting it wrong;
  • Appreciate the barriers potential candidates can face and what reasonable adjustments can be made;
  • Better equipped to improve recruitment outcomes by ensuring that documentation and selection processes are fair and inclusive;
  • Awareness of how our biases can inadvertently undermine the recruitment and selection process, including interviewing; and
  • Enable learners to reflect on their learning and translate it to their own working environments, including action planning for personal change.

We’ll also cover:

  • Tools of the trade– introducing a selection of innovative and experiential, drama-based training tools and techniques
  • User feedback– sharing evaluation results, client and user perspectives on this alternative approach to training and learning development

Please note, this isn’t a full training session. It’s an opportunity for Human Resources, Equality & Diversity, and Learning & Development professionals to try out elements of the programme, learn more about our work in this area, and to consider whether it’s something that they would be interested to run in their organisation.

What learners say

“I’d recommend [people] to undertake the training to challenge themselves and their preconceptions about inclusivity.”
“Definitely worth doing – makes you think about your own practices and interview styles, and also how your thoughts, phrases and opinions can so significantly influence others.”
“I found the delivery format engaging and thought provoking. A very useful session that I would recommend to others. Well done all.”
“Really good interactive training session, loved the use of actors so you almost can be a fly on the wall when being an interviewee and interviewer.”
“It was a great session that reminded us not to just carry on with the same old process – we can change it up to suit our needs and to encourage higher retention.”
“Sign up for it. It is thought provoking and fun!”
