Fair Employment Practices
Implementing fair and merit-based employment practices means taking age, race, gender, religion, marital status, family responsibilities and disability out of the hiring equation.
Here are the 5 principles of Fair Employment Practices:
Ensure that age is not used as a factor to consider an individual for a job. Have an open and transparent hiring process.Provide learning opportunities
Workshops and trainings for individuals involved in the hiring process can raise awareness about the problem of age discrimination.
The benefits of being fair in your hiring process are clear.
Companies can tap on a wider pool of prospective candidates who are assessed on skills, experience and qualifications, rather than limiting factors such as ethnicity, religion, marital status, gender and age.
Adopting fair employment practices enables you to recruit the best talents for your organisation, thereby increasing performance and productivity.
Companies with a reputation for being fair often find it easier to recruit and retain talent.
