The Diversity tab within the People page will appear after you have begun searching for freelancers. Everyone listed here will match your criteria (e.g. job title, availability, location, skills etc.), but we've filtered the results to display those who meet the following diversity characteristics:
The diversity filter aims to promote those people with relevant skills who may otherwise be overlooked, encouraging employers to consider candidates from diverse backgrounds and move away from the 'friends of friends' hiring culture with television. This search tool provides a quick and simple way to pull out suitable candidate, creating a tailored pool of diverse talent.
Freelancers listed under the Diversity tab are those who have disclosed this information and agreed to it being used within searches. This data is not compulsory for freelancers, giving them the option to opt-out at any point.
The diversity tab is only available to registered company users.
As with any new feature on The Talent Manager, we're keen to hear your feedback so please get in touch to let us know how this search tool is working for you and your company.
