The US Division of a Global Pharmaceutical company sought to increase the representation of diverse candidates on interview slates to a minimum of 25% per slate for targeted roles. With precious few diverse candidates in the target populations, meeting this challenge would require a focused, deliberate approach.
In partnership with our client’s Talent Acquisition Team, DoubleStar led the development of a diversity recruiting initiative that used a combination of deep web-based research, focused sourcing, direct outreach, and disciplined screening to identify and qualify robust pools of diverse talent.
This project was measured against very specific outcomes. The most important result is that 85% of the positions assigned to this effort now have at least a 25% diversity representation on interview slates.
Also, 200-400 qualified diversity candidates are added to our client’s talent database each month for use in future recruiting initiatives. Additionally, 250 new diverse candidates are added against current openings each month, of which 50% are moved into the hiring manager’s inbox. This means that 125 new diverse candidates are being identified each month that would not have been found using the client’s standard sourcing methods.
