Why transparency in recruiting?

It's time to learn more about transparency in recruiting and how we can do better.

If you’ve been around me, Gerry Crispin or CXR for any length of time, you know that transparency is not a new theme for us. We’ve long preached that more transparency is needed in the world of recruiting. Whether it’s DE&I data or salary disclosure… we firmly believe that transparency can improve recruiting for all stakeholders – recruiters, hiring managers, and candidates.

Now we think it’s time to go a little deeper. Our first step is to learn as much as we can about the different elements of transparency that might cause an impact in recruiting. Then we hope to take those conversations to the next level and help drive some meaningful change.

Join us in increasing transparency in recruiting

We’ve already started this journey and are inviting you to join us:

  • Participate in our survey: We know there are many issues where transparency could improve our industry. Please take a moment to weigh on on what issues of transparency you see as important: Transparency in Recruiting Survey.
  • Join our first discussion: If you’re a current or former member of the CXR Community, I hope you’ll make time to join us Thursday May 19th as we launch a Community discussion around the results of the above survey: Register to attend.
  • Follow our headlines and podcasts: We are actively looking for people out there who know more about key transparency issues then we do. We hope you’ll join us on this learning adventure. We’ll be featuring these discussions in our podcasts and sharing what we learn in a series of articles. (If you have a passion for this topic and want to share some insights, let us know!) Follow our podcasts wherever you listen to podcasts or on our podcast page.

To borrow from Gerry’s recent article Taking a Stand on Transparency in Recruiting

This is a call to action for transparency around minimally acceptable and unacceptable practices that are inaccessible or simply fail to inform each of the stakeholders responsible for hiring and managing. We hope to influence our colleagues and peers who might begin to adopt more effective, data-informed transparency practices.

Looking forward to learning more and taking action as a Community.
