When asked if diversity and inclusion are the same thing, Ashish Kaushal, CEO at HireTalent and Co-Founder of Consciously Unbiased, had his answer ready: “Diversity is a number, inclusion is your culture”.

Join us for a special Pride Month episode of our Transform Talent podcast as we ask Ashish Kaushal, an expert in transformation and tackling bias in the workplace, and Jennifer Torney, North American VP for Client Engagement at TAPFIN, to do some Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DE&I) myth busting!

Ashish and Jennifer talk about DE&I in the contingent workforce as most organisations tend to focus their DE&I efforts primarily on their full-time employees and likely haven’t given this topic enough thoughts when it comes to their contingent workers.

What does it mean to be consciously unbiased? What are the benefits of including diversity in an end-to-end MSP? What is MSP 3.0 and how do you measure the ROI from your DE&I efforts? These and many more questions are tackled on this thought-provoking episode.

Through engaging interviews with talent industry experts, our new podcast series discusses Covid-19’s global impact on the world of work, focusing on how this health crisis is impacting the return to the workplace, the great skills shift, employee physical and emotional well-being and the importance of building resilience in people and organisations. Our two hosts, Roberta Cucchiaro and Dominika Galusa also talk about the latest technologies and hear from our clients on how to make the Next Normal better for all.
