Recruiting Diverse Candidates

Diversity training, recruitment and consulting services combined with a comprehensive job board and career network are now available with the partnership of CPGjobs, the consumer packaged goods industry's career network, and Diversity Search, Inc., a recruitment firm specializing in the placement of women and minority candidates. The partnership will increase the reach and service offerings of both organizations while addressing the needs of increasingly diverse work environments worldwide.

For more than 10 years, CPGjobs has been connecting candidates experienced in the consumer packaged goods industry with top-tier, Fortune 500 employers and recruiters. Unlike large commercial job boards, the company's unique business model emphasizes long-term, personal relationships with candidates throughout their careers -- whether they are actively engaged in a job search or not.

In Diversity Search, Inc. CPGjobs President and Founder Michael Carrillo says he has found the right recruiting partner that will provide clients with needed services, while helping to grow business overall. According to Carrillo, "Diversity Search, Inc. is the perfect partner for CPGjobs. Our clients have been asking for recruiting services for several years now. The challenge was to find a partner that could rapidly deliver completed searches with high-quality candidates, and provide a good fit in terms of shared core values. Diversity Search delivers all that and more."

The increasingly global workforce makes diversity a key 21st century business issue. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, by the year 2050, women will occupy 48% of the total U.S. labor force. Latinos and African Americans will occupy 24.3% and 14% of the labor force respectively, while white, Non-Hispanic workers will decrease their share by nearly 20%.
