I am sure you have heard of the phrase "Birds of a feather flock together." That might work in choosing your friends but it has no place in your hiring practices.

Diversity workshops typically are viewed with resistance, fear, and/or the belief that those participating have nothing to learn. This assessment-based non-confrontational workshop enables participants to review their company and personal hiring practices (privately) in order to acquire better insight into best practices to encourage hiring of employees with diverse beliefs and attributes.

Active participants in this interactive session can expect to leave with:

* A personal (and private) assessment of your subconscious choices in candidates for employment and a look at how our personal style influences our expectations.

* A better understanding of how one's own preferences affect who we hire. You'll pinpoint how personal tendencies influence information delivery, as well as how it influences the way we interact with co-workers on any level.

* Tips on how to broaden your talent search to include people that possess diversities of mind, culture, experience, education, background, and physical abilities.

* A personal implementation plan to apply new methods of hiring as soon as you are back in the office and the tools to help you audit your success.

This is a must attend workshop for Tech Recruiters and HR executives to ensure that you are finding employees that innovate business and present diverse ideas.
