The Equality Act of 2010 was a landmark moment for employers. One of the most significant pieces of legislation in our lifetime, it promised an end to discrimination on the grounds of sex, race or disability.
Today we’re still talking about Equality, Diversity and Inclusion. In fact, the conversation has never been more prominent with issues like Black Lives Matter forcing society as a whole to examine its biases.
So after more than a decade in the spotlight, do candidates feel like they are protected from discrimination when applying for their next role? The answer, sadly, is a resounding “no” according to our research, which paints a disturbing picture of the state of ED&I within our industry.
The statistics make for worrying reading. As a company, Tribepad was born of a desire to better serve both recruiters and job seekers. We genuinely care about people, and when so many of them are telling us that something is wrong we have to sit up and take notice.
That’s why our report takes a deep dive into the issue of bias, exploring the root of the problem as well as its impact on candidates. Our goal isn’t just to highlight the flaws in the current system but to empower employers to bring about real change, a fundamental shift in the way we approach discrimination that will benefit everyone.
