1:50 PM Recruitment Planning to Build a Diverse and Thriving Workforce

Republic Services is working to create and support an inclusive and diverse workplace with a focused strategy, and in recent years their efforts to create a work environment that attracts and retains the best talent have received notable recognition. Most recently, they were named to Forbes’ 2019 Best Employers for Women, and have made a targeted initiative to increase the number of female drivers, by supporting women in a range of areas, including career development and pay equity. In this session we will discuss the steps that Republic took to grow diversity, including:
• Writing job descriptions that remove implicit bias
• Utilizing social media to convey company culture and benefits
• Creating onboarding campaigns that ensure employee success.
