Diversity programs: Striking a balance

Diversity recruitment is the most popular type of diversity program currently offered by retailers responding to a recent survey conducted by Retail Leader, followed by in-company diversity networking groups, alternative avenues for recruiting minority candidates and financial incentives to increase diversity hiring.

Among retailers with diversity programs, about one-fifth have had them in place for less than a year. Almost half have had them for 1 to 5 years, while 30 percent are over the 5-year mark with their programs.
