Cultural fit: A cop-out for discrimination?
Human Capital Magazine Online
From Nov. 1: The concept of cultural fit as an element of the hiring process has been increasingly prevalent in recent years. Sir Richard Branson described "hiring for personality" as a priority on his LinkedIn blog. However, while Branson may champion the idea of cultural fit, it is not without its detractors. A primary criticism of the term "cultural fit" is not its use in finding strong and driven personalities, or the "ideal" personality type for your team, but rather its undefined qualities giving an excuse for discrimination.

Onboarding: One size does not fit all
Diversity Executive
From May 3: While many organizations bring out the heavy artillery to recruit the right employees, onboarding new hires often doesn't garner as much attention. Effective onboarding can boost a new hire's career advancement prospects and aid retention.

High court affirmative action case could have workplace implications
Diversity Executive
From June 14: Although the U.S. Supreme Court is expected to render its ruling on the high-profile Fisher v. University of Texas before the justices' session expires at the end of June, the actual impact of their decision on employers' diversity initiatives appears far less distinct. There is a chance the ruling, regarding the case of a student denied admission to the university, will undercut the legality of affirmative action programs beyond the education realm. But because affirmative action isn't being directly challenged, both the outcome and significance are unclear. In fact, the ruling of this case could have no effect on affirmative action in the workplace at all.

Less gender diversity in HR than you think
Human Resource Executive Online
From March 8: In case you thought women in HR have been conquering the "glass ceiling" more than in other departments just by their sheer numbers in the profession, think again. At least that's what researchers at Los Angeles-based Korn/Ferry say, based on their latest data from the Korn/Ferry 500 CHRO database, which tracks the professional moves of about 500 chief human resource officers throughout the world.

4 ways to reinvigorate diversity councils
Diversity Executive
From Aug. 9: Increasing organizational effectiveness to improve business results is a perennial challenge. Excellent organizations know the status quo is not enough. They know they cannot rest on their laurels, and this same premise holds for sub-units in an organization. A diversity council can be a critical part of an organization’s success in developing a diverse and inclusive work environment. Councils can generate inclusiveness across organizational segments including senior and middle management, rank-and-file and various diverse cohorts.

The biggest barrier to true inclusion: 'Covering'
Diversity Executive
From Oct. 4: Despite a growing chorus of organizations claiming to have expansive diversity and inclusion efforts, a new report suggests that achieving the full ideal of inclusion remains elusive. To many, the epitome of inclusion is to create an environment in which employees feel comfortable bringing their authentic selves to work. But according to a survey by the Deloitte University Leadership Center for Inclusion, a majority of workers go great lengths to keep certain identity stigmas from looming large — a practice known as "covering."

HR must 'be proactive' in confronting race relations issues in the workplace
Bloomberg BNA
From Aug. 23: In light of recent events — the George Zimmerman trial and professional football player Riley Cooper being caught on camera using an egregious racial epithet — race relation issues, perhaps thought resolved by many, are again a major part of the national discourse. And like so many societal issues, race relations also are a challenge in the workplace.

Meet the new face of diversity: The 'slacker' millennial guy
Harvard Business Review Blog Network
From Oct. 18: Increasingly, managing fatherhood involves difficult conversations about what it means to be a good father, an ideal worker, and a "real" man. Today, managing diversity is not limited to women, LGBTQ individuals, or people of color. Diversity also means managing men who aren't like you — and don't want to be.
