Advancing diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) remains a top priority for many organizations in 2022. Recognizing the organizational value of these initiatives, Scotiabank turned talk into action when they dropped the traditional resume to modernize their campus recruiting efforts to be fair, objective and data-driven. During this live webinar, hear how by aligning with its employer brand vision, Scotiabank created a relationship-based hiring process that evaluates individuals for their potential to get to know the whole person. Attendees will learn how this worked to widen the company’s talent pool, support DE&I and improve employee retention.

In this session, Caitlin MacGregor, CEO of Plum, James Spearing, Vice President of Talent Acquisition for Scotiabank and Janet Mertens, Director, Research, The Josh Bersin Company, will explore how Scotiabank deployed Plum’s behavioral assessment to determine the potential of every candidate objectively. The panelists will explain how this provided a personalized and positive candidate experience while enabling recruiters to identify the right fit for various job opportunities to raise the hiring of visibility minority candidates to 60 percent and nearly double new hire retention.

Attendees will also receive a copy of the Scotiabank case study recently published by The Josh Bersin Company. To register, visit
