The Locate Jobs Network, one of the world's largest networks of niche job boards, has expanded its Diversity Hiring Channel and now offers over 200 niche job boards dedicated specifically to diversity hiring. With an array of top-level and industry-focused niche job boards presenting employment opportunities for minorities, women, veterans and other groups under-represented in the workforce, the Locate Jobs Network is providing targeted online job posting and diversity hiring resources for employers and recruiters who are struggling to find productive recruiting channels for their diversity hiring campaigns.

Matt Blevins, Director of Marketing, noted that, “With the evolution of the modern workforce and the increased global marketing of many companies' products and services, achieving true diversity in the workplace has become an immediate priority for a growing number of employers across all industries.”

In recent years, workplace diversity has grown from an industry buzzword to a real-world human resources objective. Public and private sector employers are still learning the best ways to target and attract diverse candidates for their open positions, and job seeker statistics suggest that niche job boards are one of the best ways to reach diverse candidates. With certain industries bound by rigid EEO, OFCCP and related compliance requirements, diversity campaigns are more frequently becoming an integral aspect of every recruiting engagement for many organizations.

Beyond direct employers, recruitment process outsourcing providers and recruitment advertising agencies are also searching for diversity hiring solutions for their clients. By coupling highly targeted industry-niche job boards with a growing offering of diversity-focused niche job boards, including several dedicated specifically to minority jobs, the Locate Jobs Network is attempting to fill an existing void in inbound recruiting.

“Diversity hiring has emerged as one of the primary concerns of the recruiters and employers that we speak with on a daily basis,” said Michael Wist, Director of Operations. “Our cross-posting functionality allows for any job posted with us to be integrated with the relevant diversity job boards in our Network, ensuring maximum exposure to under-served candidate groups like minorities, women and veterans.”

Because diversity hiring is still evolving within some industries, the Locate Jobs Network also offers custom packages related to diversity sourcing via its niche job boards. As new niche diversity recruiting concepts are identified through client interaction and market research, new niche job boards are added to the network to address any sourcing deficiencies.
