How to Recruit to Increase Cultural Diversity

While hiring top level talent away from another company is the “easiest” way to incorporate diversity at the upper echelons of a firm, it’s also the most competitive. Instead, take a long-term approach and grow your own talent by hiring from a diverse pool and training rookies so that they are ready to move into leadership in two to five years. While this requires a greater commitment, it means your talent will see you as a partner in their career path, not just another soulless corporate entity.
