Hiring diverse candidates is good for a business.
“Racially diverse teams outperform non-diverse ones by 35%,” says Amy Martin, founder of SheInTheCle.com and founder and principal in the marketing firm, Hyperthink.
But attracting diversity candidates is only part of the equation. The other part is retaining diversity hires. Speaking to a DisruptHR Cleveland audience last year, Martin observed that there’s “a ton of research out there about why you hire diversely.”
But, she said, “There’s basically nothing out there about how to retain them and enervate them in your institution.”
