Creating a More Diverse Workforce

In May, Google released data on their workforce that showed Google employees are 30% women and 5% African-American or Hispanic.  Google isn’t just working to change its ways; Google also released a video on how hiring managers can become less biased and why it’s important.  Google was once known for its dreaded brainteasers during interviews.  Research studies have shown that structured interviews yield a more diverse workplace.  A diverse workforce isn’t just politically correct, it’s a way to bring new ideas into your organizational culture.  A diverse workforce doesn’t just bring new ideas from new hires; a diverse workforce can create an atmosphere that welcomes new ideas from existing employees.
