The hiring platform HireMojo Inc. has partnered with Northern California Human Resources Association (NCHRA) to increase the diversity of the applicants for local companies.
Thomson Reuters recently released its Diversity and Inclusion Index and the top companies in Silicon Valley did not make the cut for the top 100. According to the study, companies that are gender and racially diverse are likely to outperform those that are not.
“Ninety-six percent of our members who responded to our pulse survey this year indicated that cultivating diversity in the workplace is essential for driving innovation,” NCHRA CEO Greg Morton said in a press release. "There is clear data demonstrating an advantage for our members and their companies to increase their gender and ethnic diversity. Because of this, we selected HireMojo as a partner. Their proven and quantifiable methods to increase diversity across all rolls and levels provides meaningful value to our members."
Both HireMojo and Northern California Human Resources Association are committed to making San Francisco and Silicon Valley more diverse in their hiring process.
"For example, many HR professionals are simply unaware that one of the top sources of more white, male workers is the social network upon which they rely most heavily," Morton said. "Conversely, HireMojo knows and can promote jobs to sites that reach twice as many African-American and Latino candidates.”
