Introversion in DE&I with Glen Cathey

“Neurological differences should be recognized and respected as a social category on par with gender, ethnicity, sexual identity, and orientation.”

– Glen Cathey | Head of Digital Strategy & Innovation at Randstad

Over the past two years, we’ve seen a drastic shift in the way we discuss DE&I. What began as a call for greater diversity hiring and initiatives strengthened into a necessary emphasis on inclusion and belonging in the workplace. 

Glen Cathey touched on one group of individuals who often endure the opposite of inclusion and belonging: introverts. 

Here’s what he had to say: 

Beyond introversion, Glen taps into a larger cultural issue many organizations create. He cited a Deloitte study that found nearly two-thirds of workers having to downplay their differences. 

With a candidate-driven market in place, this cultural disconnect is an issue organizations cannot afford to have.

What Makes a Great Sourcer? 

“Being a sourcer is a standalone position. It takes a lot of skill, technical understanding, and requires you to be creative and think out-of-the box.”

– Vanessa Raath

Why is this distinction between recruiters and sourcers important? Here’s what Vanessa had to say:

So what are some of Vanessa’s ways for spotting an effective Sourcer? 

✅ They have a great digital presence already and care greatly about branding and online credibility

✅ They know how to craft an amazing outreach email that will elicit a response from passive talent. 

✅ They’re able to look beyond LinkedIn and “fish” from fresh talent pools
