In an increasingly competitive marketplace, businesses cannot afford to carry any additional weight that doesn't help them succeed. So how does having a diverse workforce further a company's goals? A diverse workforce can provide tangible benefits to a company besides just fulfilling legal compliance and good faith efforts. In fact, as markets expand globally being able to understand and reach out to the individual needs of people from other cultures and regions will be paramount. Learn the interviewing and hiring process in five steps: 1) Understanding the organization's culture; 2) Conducting a job analysis; 3) Developing behavior-based interview questions; 4) Recruitment strategies; and 5) Interviewing and selection.
