Interviews, a useful tool or a complete waste of time? I am sure everyone can think back to a time they attended an awful interview with a smug interviewer reading pre-scripted questions. The charade plays out and you skillfully demonstrate your core competencies by regurgitating prepared answers. The feedback is excellent and you proceed to the next round. But what has anyone learned?
Creating workplaces that reflect the communities in which they live is a good thing to strive for. Workplaces where people feel empowered, included and able to bring their authentic selves to work are even better. Diverse companies are more innovative and have a better chance of creating and executing the best strategies for success.
