Workforce Diversity Program
Leverage the TAO Workforce Diversity program to tap into the power of diverse teams.
TAO knows that a vibrant tech ecosystem includes a diverse workforce, and that attracting diverse talent means offering fair hiring opportunities to all job seekers.
Through a partnership with FairHire, Technology Association of Oregon members will receive a discounted rate on the Blind Hiring Platform, a next generation Applicant Tracking System that is known for its ability to tackle bias from the end-to-end hiring process.
Fairhire’s framework is designed:
- to attract a high quality pool of diverse talent
- to support member organizations to recruit new employees without bias
By embracing methodologies to remove bias from the end-to-end recruitment process, the technology industry within Oregon & South Washington will facilitate equal opportunities for diverse job seekers.
Why Blind Hiring?
On average, recruiters spend six seconds to review a resume and internalized bias plays an influential role in decision making during the recruitment process.
- With FairHire, recruiters can focus on the candidate’s merit and not on biases.
- Blind hiring has seen an increase of 58% in gender diversity at the interview stages.
- FairHire can help unlock hidden talent pools whom would otherwise self-exclude themselves.
