Diversity recruitment is one of the hottest business issues in corporate America today — and for good reason. The ethnic makeup of our country is changing at a rate faster than anyone anticipated. Aware of these changing demographics, many corporate front-runners established diversity initiatives back in the mid-90s. Two decades later, WSS continues to lead the charge in executive level diversity recruitment.
The financial rewards of appealing to an increasingly diversified customer base are significant. Women purchase 70 to 80% of all products; African Americans spend nearly $500 billion each year on goods and services, and Hispanics are the fastest growing consumer group in the United States.
Additionally, 85% of lesbians and gay men are more likely to purchase products and services from companies they see in LGBT media.
WSS understands that recruiting a diverse workforce is not about filling a quota or running targeted ads. True diversity starts with an organizational mission to recruit a variety of outstanding people with differing backgrounds, skills, ideas and cultures including veterans, candidates with disabilities and the aging population.
Regardless of the skill set, diversity focus and your culture needs, WSS can help. Challenging searches are where we truly excel.
