You heard it straight from the recruiter’s mouth: Companies with diversity programs enjoy a competitive advantage when it comes to recruiting top talent.

An overwhelming majority—nearly nine out of 10 executive recruiters—thought effective diversity programs provide a more robust talent pool.

According to Korn/Ferry International’s Executive Recruiter Index, more than two-thirds (68%) of executive recruiters thought executive leadership should be driving an organization’s diversity efforts, followed by the board of directors (13%), human resource department (11%) and diversity committee (8%).
