What we’re listening to: Race at Work with Porter Braswell, “Why Traditional Recruiting Pipelines Don’t Work” with iCIMS’ Charles Mah.

Why we’re listening: Porter’s conversation with iCIMS’ Chief Evangelist Charles Mah highlights how important it is for companies to evolve their existing recruitment pipelines. Charles suggests this can be accomplished by companies finding different attraction signals. Rather than pulling talent from existing pipelines or hiring candidates with traditional backgrounds, recruiters have the opportunity to expand their company’s diversity by inviting candidates, particularly those with atypical backgrounds, into conversations about how they think or what their views are. 

Furthermore, Charles believes that ERGs can be used as part of the solution to the “Pipeline Challenge.” Instead of existing solely as an internal tool, ERGs can be opened to the community and assist recruiters with connecting diverse candidates to a company.
