DIVERSITY IS A KEY CHALLENGE IN RECRUITMENT
The impact of ‘soft’ solutions to improve diversity have had
negligible impact on the real world
The colour of someone’s skin or their name can still be a
barrier to social mobility: ethnic minorities are still facing the
same levels of discrimination in hiring they did 25 years ago1.
The gender pay gap still exists: women earn $73 for every
$100 a man makes2.
Men are 47 percent more likely to reach senior
manager/director positions than their female peers3.
Social mobility is harder than it’s ever been: America’s elite
colleges admit more young people from the wealthiest 1%
than from families in the bottom 60%4
If there is only one minority candidate in a final recruitment
pool they have almost no chance of being offered the role.
Two minority candidates are at least 79X more likely to be
offered the role5

CANDIDATE EXPERIENCE IS CRITICAL
Today, candidates demand seamless experiences in recruitment and true purpose in employment. Purpose matters.
An organisation’s stance on inclusivity, candidate centricity and equality will be a key deciding factors for potential
talent. Candidate centric solutions should be:
• Ensure a consistent
experience for all
users throughout
the journey: know
what to expect and
how long it will take
• Ensure candidates
feel the same tone,
brand and values
throughout
Seamless
• Modern candidate
led technology
solutions
• AI / automation
leveraged to achieve
optimum human
versus machine
solutions
Digital
• Tailor the
experience to meet
the needs of both
the organisation and
the employee
• Deliver an
experience that has
a positive impact on
candidates –
whether successful
or unsuccessful
Human
• Solutions led by
inclusivity and
candidate centricity
• Mandate a fair
experience
• Demonstrate
flexibility
• Remove barriers and
biases
Inclusive
• Design with the
future in mind with a
solution that is
dynamic and flexible
• Ensure change and
adoption plans as
well as solution
designs put the user
front and center
Scalable
5Copyright © 2020 Accenture. All rights reserved.
EXISTING PLATFORMS AREN’T FIT FOR PURPOSE
Inadequate: not designed
for volume hiring
1 2 3 4
• Lack of insight causes
costly bottlenecks
• System of record, not
system of action
Biased: puts diverse
groups at a disadvantage
• Existing screening
process susceptible
to biases
Restricted: candidate
UX reduces pipeline
• Average 46% completion
rate with legacy ATS6
• Disproportionately
affects lower socio-
economic groups
Inefficient: extreme
time/efficiency losses
• Recruiter workflows are
poor with real operating
and productivity costs
6Copyright © 2020 Accenture. All rights reserved.
THE IMPACT
The uncomfortable truth is that the recruitment process is broken and inherently unfair.
This leads to:
Chronic Mis-hiring
Institutional Bias
Huge Costs
Lost Revenue
75%
Estimated that up to 75% of new
hires are mis-hires that won’t
ever reach the expectations set
by the company or themselves7.
$bn’s
The cost of a mishire is
conservatively estimated at
$40k9. The cost to a single large
enterprise can easily run into
the $100m’s.
50%+
The current recruitment practice
in most enterprise organisations
is inherently biased,
disadvantaging women and
ethnic minorities by over 50%8.
42%+
42% of ethnic minority shoppers
and 41% of LGBT shoppers
would switch to a retailer
committed to inclusion and
diversity10.
7Copyright © 2020 Accenture. All rights reserved.
WHY IS NOW THE TIME FOR CHANGE?
TREND 1 TREND 2 TREND 3
Societal spotlight on
discrimination
Movements and protests focusing
on diversity, discrimination and
equity in society and actions by
corporates to right wrongs
Unemployment creates
unsustainable volume
Higher unemployment rates as a
result of COVID-19 leads to
increased volume of applications,
unsustainable with current
resourcing levels
Using AI to automate and
reduce costs
Organizations are looking to
reduce cost base whilst increasing
flexibility and capability to meet
customer demands

WHAT’S GETTING IN THE WAY?
Hollow Commitment
Old systems are
entrenched
Business goals remain
the priority
Meaningful change to driving progress
in diversity requires commitment and
conviction at the highest levels of your
organisation
Real board level commitment to action
and change is required, as well as
influential internal champions who can
drive it
Existing systems/processes aren’t
flexible enough, not fit for purpose, not
adaptable.
New purpose-built systems need to
replace the old systems.
Balancing quality of hires with
candidate/recruiter experience without
high costs and inefficiencies
No compromise
Accuracy, quality of hiring and
business efficiencies have to remain at
the core of this change.
It must make business sense too.
9Copyright © 2020 Accenture. All rights reserved.

Accenture & Headstart - Diversity Hiring Proposition

  • 1. 1Copyright © 2020 Accenture. All rights reserved. WE STAND TOGETHER FOR EQUALITY
  • 2. 2Copyright © 2020 Accenture. All rights reserved. OUR IMMERSIVE VOLUME RECRUITMENT SOLUTION WITH NO ADVERSE EFFECTS ON GENDER OR ETHNICITY
  • 3. 3Copyright © 2020 Accenture. All rights reserved. DIVERSITY IS A KEY CHALLENGE IN RECRUITMENT The impact of ‘soft’ solutions to improve diversity have had negligible impact on the real world The colour of someone’s skin or their name can still be a barrier to social mobility: ethnic minorities are still facing the same levels of discrimination in hiring they did 25 years ago1. The gender pay gap still exists: women earn $73 for every $100 a man makes2. Men are 47 percent more likely to reach senior manager/director positions than their female peers3. Social mobility is harder than it’s ever been: America’s elite colleges admit more young people from the wealthiest 1% than from families in the bottom 60%4 If there is only one minority candidate in a final recruitment pool they have almost no chance of being offered the role. Two minority candidates are at least 79X more likely to be offered the role5
  • 4. 4Copyright © 2020 Accenture. All rights reserved. CANDIDATE EXPERIENCE IS CRITICAL Today, candidates demand seamless experiences in recruitment and true purpose in employment. Purpose matters. An organisation’s stance on inclusivity, candidate centricity and equality will be a key deciding factors for potential talent. Candidate centric solutions should be: • Ensure a consistent experience for all users throughout the journey: know what to expect and how long it will take • Ensure candidates feel the same tone, brand and values throughout Seamless • Modern candidate led technology solutions • AI / automation leveraged to achieve optimum human versus machine solutions Digital • Tailor the experience to meet the needs of both the organisation and the employee • Deliver an experience that has a positive impact on candidates – whether successful or unsuccessful Human • Solutions led by inclusivity and candidate centricity • Mandate a fair experience • Demonstrate flexibility • Remove barriers and biases Inclusive • Design with the future in mind with a solution that is dynamic and flexible • Ensure change and adoption plans as well as solution designs put the user front and center Scalable
  • 5. 5Copyright © 2020 Accenture. All rights reserved. EXISTING PLATFORMS AREN’T FIT FOR PURPOSE Inadequate: not designed for volume hiring 1 2 3 4 • Lack of insight causes costly bottlenecks • System of record, not system of action Biased: puts diverse groups at a disadvantage • Existing screening process susceptible to biases Restricted: candidate UX reduces pipeline • Average 46% completion rate with legacy ATS6 • Disproportionately affects lower socio- economic groups Inefficient: extreme time/efficiency losses • Recruiter workflows are poor with real operating and productivity costs
  • 6. 6Copyright © 2020 Accenture. All rights reserved. THE IMPACT The uncomfortable truth is that the recruitment process is broken and inherently unfair. This leads to: Chronic Mis-hiring Institutional Bias Huge Costs Lost Revenue 75% Estimated that up to 75% of new hires are mis-hires that won’t ever reach the expectations set by the company or themselves7. $bn’s The cost of a mishire is conservatively estimated at $40k9. The cost to a single large enterprise can easily run into the $100m’s. 50%+ The current recruitment practice in most enterprise organisations is inherently biased, disadvantaging women and ethnic minorities by over 50%8. 42%+ 42% of ethnic minority shoppers and 41% of LGBT shoppers would switch to a retailer committed to inclusion and diversity10.
  • 7. 7Copyright © 2020 Accenture. All rights reserved. WHY IS NOW THE TIME FOR CHANGE? TREND 1 TREND 2 TREND 3 Societal spotlight on discrimination Movements and protests focusing on diversity, discrimination and equity in society and actions by corporates to right wrongs Unemployment creates unsustainable volume Higher unemployment rates as a result of COVID-19 leads to increased volume of applications, unsustainable with current resourcing levels Using AI to automate and reduce costs Organizations are looking to reduce cost base whilst increasing flexibility and capability to meet customer demands 7Copyright © 2020 Accenture. All rights reserved.
  • 8. 8Copyright © 2020 Accenture. All rights reserved. WHAT’S GETTING IN THE WAY? Hollow Commitment Old systems are entrenched Business goals remain the priority Meaningful change to driving progress in diversity requires commitment and conviction at the highest levels of your organisation Real board level commitment to action and change is required, as well as influential internal champions who can drive it Existing systems/processes aren’t flexible enough, not fit for purpose, not adaptable. New purpose-built systems need to replace the old systems. Balancing quality of hires with candidate/recruiter experience without high costs and inefficiencies No compromise Accuracy, quality of hiring and business efficiencies have to remain at the core of this change. It must make business sense too.
