The 10 Must-Read Articles for Recruiters This Week

October 18, 2019

In this week’s list of our must-read articles for talent professionals, you’ll find two stories highlighting the challenges facing women in the workforce. One takes us to Germany where a derogatory, 16th century term for “neglectful mother” still holds working moms back, while the other reviews the results from a five-year study by McKinsey & Co and LeanIn.Org that suggests women fall behind their male counterparts shockingly early in their careers — as early as the first rung of the management ladder.

Also on our list, Google’s crowning in a recent study as the “world’s most reputable employer” (despite recent bad press and employee walkouts) is a jumping-off point to rethink the relationship between employer brand, company reputation, and employee activism. There’s also three stories about diversity and inclusion, including accounts of the discrimination experienced by trans workers, an argument for asking more difficult questions from a worker in a wheelchair, and a breakdown of how employers and interviewers can embrace all the introverts out there.
