Recruitment Diversity was founded by Chris Bale to promote diversity and equality in the recruitment process. The site shares news, press releases and opinions about diversity issues relevant to employers, recruitment agencies and job boards.


The reason for creating this site is to help those involved in the recruitment process understand how critical it is to take diversity issues seriously. In the US the recruitment market is well developed in working with employers to ensure a diverse workplace. Sadly this is not the case in Europe and Asia and I am keen to do whatever is possible to help change attitudes. If you feel the same, please join.
