Blog: 3 Reasons to include salary information on your job descriptions
t’s time for us to think differently about salary transparency and pay equity. Here’s why:
Without an intentional approach to salary equity and transparency, your pay structure is almost certainly perpetuating racial inequity in your workplace.
Salary negotiations and anchoring on previous salary perpetuate systemic inequities.
Including salary information strengthens the candidate experience.
Applicant Tracking Systems
Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) can make a huge difference in being able to manage and communicate with candidates, and help hiring managers stay informed and organized.
One of our favorite ATS', Lever is focused on helping you build relationships with candidates. The interface is simple to navigate, allows you to build out all of your candidate communication keeping candidates informed at every stage of the process, collaborate with your hiring team, and track important metrics like where you might be losing diverse candidates in the process, which can help you assess and adjust your processes. If you're interested in learning more about Lever, sign up for a demo here, and let them know we sent you!

Blog: Why you should consider sharing interview questions with candidates
When we're working with organizations on their hiring practices, one recommendation we often make is to share their interview questions with candidates in advance of the interview day. What often comes next is the question “Isn’t that cheating?, or the hesitant “Yes, but I don’t think my company will go for it.” As more and more companies look to diversify their talent pools and create intentional and equitable hiring practices, many talent leaders are struggling to get buy-in on this particular approach. Here’s what we'd offer those of you who have the potential to make this change in your organization.
