Workforce hiring diversity isn't just limited to gender, and companies are picking up on that with greater movements to include other disadvantaged populations such as those with disabilities (or "people with disabilities", PWDs), veterans, and the elderly.
While there are exclusive job portals such as Sheroes, JobsForHer and Avtar for women and the recently launched job portal -- Pride Circle -- for the LGBTQ segment, there are none that provide talent profiles of candidates across the spectrum of the Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) umbrella.
Equiv.in, India’s exclusive job portal for diverse talent that was launched last July to cater to the growing demand from corporates, offers listings of 63,000 women job seekers, 2,800 PWDs and 22 LGBTQ with plans to include senior citizens and army veterans this year.
“The definition of diversity is changing and has moved beyond women (gender diversity). Corporates are urging us to build a pool of diverse talent profiles that they can access to meet their D&I goals. We have facilitated 1,000 women hires and 24 PWD hires via Equiv.in. While majority of the women hires are mid-level profiles, 75 per cent of the PWD hires are orthopaedic cases, 20 per cent are hearing impaired and 10 per cent are vision impaired,” Naren Krishna, Founder CEO of Equiv.in told BusinessLine. Krishna is also the founder CEO of Stockroom.io, a talent acquisition platform for technology talent.
