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.

Level the Playing Field

  • Participating members will be provided with an enterprise version of FairHire Technology at an exclusive price.
  • Blind hiring practices, under scientific protocols, are carried out delivering the best outcome for the employer and candidates.
  • Experts from University of Bocconi Research Center (ICRIOS) will set up the scientific protocol and analyze the data periodically to identify barriers from achieving goals.
  • Every vacancy under this framework will be eligible for FairHire® certification to provide the stamp of confidence to the job applicants.
