Commitment to Diversity
Advocate Search Group works with each client’s diversity & inclusion objectives in the Preparation phase of the search process. We assess the skills and attributes you’re looking for in a candidate and develop a customized recruitment strategy to pinpoint the candidates who match that profile.
We have found that diversity can be defined differently from client-to-client. A few examples are:
Gender Diversity – Our clients require gender-diverse management teams. We leverage our vast network with top-level women and men in education to identify the best talent.
Cultural Diversity – We share with our clients the belief that a culturally diverse top management team is required to work in the international marketplace. Within organizations, cultural diversity can mean ethnicity, nationality, and/or strategic thinking.
Geographic Diversity – Sometimes our clients expanding into international markets will ask us to strengthen their bench in certain high-growth markets. We do this by targeting talent with experience in certain geographies – Asia, Europe, Latin America.
Age Diversity – At any given time, there may be three or four generations of individuals in the workplace. Our clients view this is a competitive advantage as each person brings different life experiences to the team.
Racial Diversity – With the student population in schools and colleges across the country getting more diverse our clients seek to hire staff, role models, and mentors that reflect the student demographics that make up each unique institution and community.
Capabilities Disability Diversity – The U.S. government encourages the hiring of people with physical, mental, or emotional disabilities through federal laws and by making funding available to companies to employ these workers.
Diverse candidates with the skills and qualifications you seek are out there; and the recruiting team at Advocate Search Group can help you identify and recruit them. We act as a bridge, connecting your organization with a network of diverse professionals you may be missing with your existing recruitment efforts.
