Recruitment professionals are becoming more aware of the need for diversity, but is it just a buzzword?

Daniel Tóth of InterTech Ireland was at Career Zoo last month for a panel discussion on how companies can make sure they are promoting diversity properly.

“We want to demystify diversity a bit, we want to talk about what it is or how different companies can see it differently,” he said.

Tóth also talked about the importance of diversity within the hiring pipeline for companies. “It’s one thing to say, ‘Once you’re in, then we enable you to grow’, but does your pipeline have all those diverse candidates available and do you look out for them?”
