The 10 Must-Read Articles for Recruiters This Week

November 1, 2019

If you’re looking for a pick-me-up after a long week at the office, look no further than our list of recent, must-read articles for talent professionals. We’ve got good news coming from Lyft, as the ride-sharing service is easing the financial burden of job seekers across North America by providing free rides to people heading to interviews, starting a new role, or attending job-training programs. At Microsoft, the software company has successfully rejigged its hiring process to attract an often-overlooked talent pool — candidates with autism. And in a possible sign of things to come, McDonalds is claiming it’s created the world’s first-ever voice-initiated job application process (“Hey Alexa — find me a job!”).

And if these three corporate stories weren’t enough, our list also features an infographic that makes the case for using social media to build a top-notch employer brand, an explanation of "proximity bias" and its negative impact on remote workers, and a how-to for engaging white men in your diversity and inclusion efforts.
