Paul David, CEO and co-founder at Literal Humans, has built a small yet incredibly diverse team, with people from all kinds of backgrounds, races and genders - something he set out to achieve from the beginning.
How is Paul’s agency able to hire more diversely, when other agencies say they are struggling?
- They target specific communities.
- They’ve taken part in diversity schemes, including the government’s Kickstart Scheme.
- They also believe flexibility is a gateway to diversity.
Paul advises agencies to make a plan and treat diversity like a product.
“We build products and services for clients all the time, we set timelines and targets and benchmarks, but people don’t do this for diversity and inclusion – and I think you just produce better, more creative, more interesting work for clients with a diverse team.”
If you’re struggling to make diverse hires, how do you overcome that? What can you change in your hiring process?
