How To Better Assess Diversity in the Workplace

January 10, 2023

Federal agencies are required to promote diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility (DEIA) in the workforce. Employee recruitment and hiring are, of course, central to that. By leveraging our experience and the tools and resources we own, we are able to better analyze talent trends, assess diversity in the workplace, and develop practical, impactful strategies that can fulfill federal standards and agency goals.

Recruitment and hiring are two important ways that agencies can promote diversity and inclusion, and GovStrive’s Talent Pool Analysis can help. Recruitment and hiring start before the first job announcement is posted and candidates’ applications are received. It starts with properly analyzing an agency’s recruitment process.

Our Talent Pool Analysis compares an agency’s workforce against DEIA benchmarks based on U.S. workers in similar occupations to highlight where DEIA can be improved at the agency.

 Additionally, our solution helps agencies locate U.S. workers from diverse backgrounds with relevant education and experience for recruitment. With this solution in hand, federal agencies can assess and promote DEIA with research-driven strategies and track improvements to diversity in the workplace over time.
