HR Happy Hour 352 - Improving Diversity Recruiting in Technology

Host: Steve Boese

Guest: Kylie Gomez, Atlassian

This week on the HR Happy Hour Show, Steve is joined by Kylie Gomez, Senior Product Recruiter at Atlassian, a leading technology company to talk about how they approach the challenges of recruiting a more diverse set of candidates.

Atlassian has about 3,000 employees worldwide, and has plans to grow to 5,000 in the next few years. A big challenge for Atlassian, and for any company in growth mode, is to improve the diversity of their candidate pools, as well as the people they eventually bring into the organization. On the show, Kylie shared some specific approaches that have been working for Atlassian - thinking about the problem in a holistic way, using modern technology tools that support more diverse and unbiased candidate searches and assessment, and making sure that the company culture and mission are at the forefront in the entire recruiting process.

This is a really interesting and enlightening conversation with a recruiting leader at one of tech's most successful and innovative companies, and one from which any HR and recruiting leader can take away some important insights around improving diversity and reducing bias in the recruiting process.
