Here’s a look at one of the Top HR Products of 2021: Gem: Diversity Recruiting Insights


What it is: Gem’s Diversity Recruiting Insights empowers businesses to improve their recruiting strategy with diversity and inclusivity in mind, offering end-to-end visibility into how candidates across different representations and backgrounds are impacted throughout the recruiting journey. With robust top-of-funnel reporting, recruiting teams can discover and adjust their sourcing strategy toward building diverse talent pools. Hiring teams can then visualize every step of the process to uncover biases and identify opportunities to reduce bottlenecks and drop-offs from underrepresented groups. Organizations can leverage real-time data to build a more diverse workforce with the tool.

Why we like it: Continuing the trend of new, innovative HR technology solutions that are meant to provide support and insights for organizations as they look to improve diversity, equity and inclusion, Gem’s solution gives talent acquisition leaders meaningful data and analytics into the progress of DEI goals throughout the recruiting funnel or process. We liked how Gem can examine and provide insights into detailed talent acquisition process steps like screening, first interview, second interview and so on. It’s a step beyond initial DEI strategies that often focus on sourcing, i.e., expanding talent pools generally, but don’t have the tools to see the DEI impact and effectiveness later in the hiring process. With GEM, these insights are easily discovered, giving talent acquisition leaders the tools they need to address problems.
