Thursday, May 18th is Global Accessibility Awareness Day, a day to get everyone thinking, talking, and learning about digital inclusion. This is an important day in the Recite Me calendar and we are spending the entire week shining a spotlight on digital accessibility and inclusion. We caught up with George Graves, Founder & Managing Partner at hyrUP to discuss the importance of inclusive recruitment and accessibility within the workplace.
What is hyrUP’s approach to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI)?
hyrUP helps companies all over the United States (and the world) identify hard-to-find talent. We reach out to candidates of all backgrounds and experiences to ensure our clients have a diverse group of individuals to choose from.
Why is inclusive recruitment important?
It is important to recruit individuals of different backgrounds, who possess different skills, different abilities, and have different perspectives. This type of inclusive culture promotes a friendly competition of ideas, which ultimately helps deliver the best products/services to their end customers.
How has Recite Me helped hyrUP to provide an inclusive digital experience for your employees and customers?
Recite Me has helped us, and many of our clients understand the need to be fully inclusive of all individuals. Everyone has unique skills and abilities, and the Recite Me platform helps level the playing field.
Why do you think it is important that we amplify the noise of accessibility within the workplace?
Promoting accessibility within the workplace can help you build a more inclusive culture and foster a sense of belonging among all employees. When employees feel valued and supported, they are more likely to be engaged and productive, which can ultimately benefit your bottom line.
