Hello, I am wondering whether anyone can help with my problem please.
We currently use an applicant tracking system to store applications. Some come in direct to the system, some come via email and some via staff referrals. Irrespective, they all end up in the ATS with every applicant acknowledged and either taken forward or rejected. At the moment we don't send out an equal opportunities monitoring form. If we did, it would come back into the applicant record, therefore not making it anonymous and one could argue, making it easier to subconsciously discriminate. On the other hand it would be good to monitor as we are genuinely interested in the data. I work in the tech sector and increasing our diversity in the business is one of our top objectives.
Does anyone else have any experience of this and any ideas how we could tackle this?
