Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) statements are a crucial part of a job posting. Sure they can feel like a bit of required legal jargon, but they are actually an opportunity to highlight your commitment to fostering a diverse, inclusive work environment. And with the ease of most modern applicant tracking systems including job templates, you can add an EEO statement automatically to every job posting. But just copying and pasting an EEO statement from a legal document isn’t enough. This is an opportunity to stand out amongst the competition and a touchpoint that can help you connect with the right candidates.
Here are the key ways to make your EEO statement mean something to candidates.
Include a statement about what it means to hire diverse candidates like Radancy did.
BuiltIn uses this opportunity to highlight some of the Employee Resources Groups and positions dedicated to being a diverse and welcoming workplace.
Include additional information for candidate looking to learn more about policies like Ultimate Kronos Group (UKG). Better yet, if you’ve built out a landing page dedicated to diversity equity etc. like Beamery did.
Give candidates the opportunity to contact someone at the company about interview accommodations like OysterHR.
