I’m excited to share with you an important Report HRPA has taken a lead roll on:

Today, the Human Resources Professionals Association and Diversio are launching a Report that measures regulated Human Resource Professionals’ perspectives and experiences about Diversity & Inclusion in Ontario business.

Diversio is a people intelligence platform company that measures, tracks, and improves diversity & inclusion.

Key Insights on Diversity and Inclusion: A Joint HRPA and Diversio Report, the Report identifies opportunities and gaps for implementing D&I programs in Ontario’s businesses and offers specific solutions that can be immediately put into place. It is backed by data from a survey of 884 HR Professionals, representing over 250 organizations, and over 20 business sectors in Ontario. The full Report can be found here.

The Report is a significant tool for HR Professionals, businesses, and stakeholders alike and also serves as a catalyst for discussion and change.

Three specific actions HRPA and Diversio are leading as a result of the data generated from this Report include:

  1. Inclusive Hiring Best Practices: This includes an outline for HR Professionals to ensure inclusive hiring practices that empower all groups to succeed in the interview process are in place, and can be found here. A Hiring Policy Toolkit will be made available in the near future.
  2. D&I Toolkit: The package of materials includes: Standard Code of Conduct, Zero Tolerance Policy, and members have discounted access to Diversio D&I technology.
  3. Training: HRPA and Diversio will provide unique training opportunities for HR Professionals and the business community, focused on: Unconscious Bias, Leadership D&I, Allyship and many   other important topics.

This is the first of many D&I initiatives HRPA will be leading on throughout 2021 and beyond.

I hope this serves to spark change and supports HR Professionals to help lead their organizations as they embrace D&I.

Thank you

Louise
