Building Recruiting Diversity

Titan ATS: Building Recruiting Diversity

  •  0

More companies are embracing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) initiatives especially in their hiring practices but falling short of reaching their goals. Inciting meaningful change requires organizational commitment and actionable objectives. To improve diversity in the workplace, organizations must take a hard look at the flaws in diversity recruiting and address them.

Katherine McCordKatherine McCord, President of Titan Management and Titan ATS, has built a technology solution to do just that. Titan ATS builds on the features of an applicant tracking system but adds proprietary functionality that eliminates bias and helps recruiters focus on skill sets and talents in order to hire the right person for the job.

Bias Abounds

“What I found in my research and conversations is that resumes are horribly ineffective,” says Katherine.

According to “The state of diversity recruiting in 2020” report by Harver, “Research has demonstrated that African American and Asian job applicants who mask their race on resumes seem to have better success getting a job interview.”

 

Making Meaningful Change

The biggest barriers to embracing diversity are “a sense that the workforce is sufficiently diverse” and a “general attitude of indifference (SHRM).” Giving leaders and HR professionals a better understanding, and backing it with data, will help them see the need for reform and commit to change.

Katherine believes overcoming these two obstacles can push nay-sayers to embrace diverse hiring practices in their organizations.

What is Diversity?

Helping leadership and recruiters understand what diversity means is the first step towards change.

Many leaders view diversity as being purely about race. However, diversity recruiting is much broader, encompassing gender, physical abilities, sexual orientation, and more. In fact, over 61% of employees in America over 45 have seen or experienced age discrimination in the workplace, according to AARP.

The Bottom Line

Data shows that a more diverse workforce encourages innovation and positively impacts the bottom line – benefits leaders and recruiters love.

Hiring diversely gives you a broader insight into your customer base, allowing for better client satisfaction and engagement. According to the Boston Consulting Group, this yields an average of 19% higher revenue!

Answering the Call

In September of 2020, a light bulb came on for Katherine. “I was on the way to the airport at 4:30am and then bing! I know how to fix it,” she says. She got to work finding a pre-built ATS platform that she and her team could shape into their unique solution.

Katherine chose HiringThing as her technology partner to build a game-changing recruiting solution. She says, “the team is easy to work with and they showed passion for what we’re doing.” Using HiringThing’s robust APIs, Titan developers were able to build their system to deeply integrate their unique application process with our powerful tools.

“Better hiring. Period.”

Titan ATS is the cloud-based hiring software that discards resumes in favor of robust candidate profiles to reduce bias in the hiring process and put DEI accountability at the forefront. Katherine describes the solution as “More effective. More efficient. More human.”

Software Features

Titan achieves their goals to make hiring less discriminatory with two key, patent-pending features.

Candidate Profiles

Unique candidate profiles highlight the attributes which best qualify applicants for open roles, and remove superfluous, bias-creating information.

DEI Accountability

Mervyn Kennedy-MacFoy, Special Analysis Advisor for Titan ATS, was the visionary behind their diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) accountability feature. The feature allows companies to put their best foot forward by showcasing their diversity goals and progress. It’s even visible to candidates!

 

Taking Tech By Storm

Titan ATS is new to the market, and being noticed in the industry. The software received accolades at Web Summit in Lisbon and Katherine has been recognized as a “Woman in Tech”. The future is bright for Titan ATS with product rollouts planned for as early as July 2021.
