The “Who, What, Where, When, and How” of Outreach

Outreach is not a new term to the federal contractor community. The idea is to promote effective communication between employers and underrepresented communities to overcome hiring disparities.

One of the biggest initiatives that the Fortune 1000 companies have invested in is improving their diversity hiring numbers through outreach (SHRM). When executed properly, outreach can be your biggest asset to hiring quality diversity and minority candidates. Organizations that promote the hiring of diversity and minority job seekers, as seen in the Fortune 1000 companies, consistently notice vast improvements in areas such as innovation of products and services (SHRM). So, how do you perform outreach like the Fortune 1000? Keeping an open line of communication between you and your source is crucial.
