Recruitment of persons with disabilities

To benefit from wider Diversity & Inclusion in companies, recruitment policies and procedures need to be inclusive of persons with disabilities. Ranging from disability awareness among recruiters, accessible e-recruitment platforms and a focus on job seekers’ skills, there are many simple measures to attract and recruit persons with disabilities to a company’s workforce

TalentWorks is an online resource that helps employers and human resources professionals make their eRecruiting technologies accessible to all job seekers—including those with disabilities.

This webinar explored the unacknowledged risks to the more than 1.3 billion persons with disabilities triggered by the fast-growing use of Artificial Intelligence (AI)-powered recruitment tools. Why do leaders of the global ethical AI debate disregard the potential harm to more than 1.3 billion people living today with disabilities and to the hundreds of millions who will become disabled in time? Will the HR cost savings generated by AI technology outweigh the potential damage to the life chances of so many? The discussants were Yves Veulliet (IBM), Susan Scott-Parker (business disability international), and Stefan Trömel (ILO Global Business and Disability Network).
