The pandemic reinforced the moral and social justice case for diversity and inclusion (D&I)

deepening the need for equality and fairness of opportunity (McKinsey, 2022). D&I should be

an integral part of people resourcing which is about attracting and selecting the most suitable

candidate for the job in accordance with organisational goals (Bratton et al., 2022). However, it

is not always clear what makes a candidate ‘suitable’. There is potential for bias when making

these decisions and evidence shows that marginalised groups face discrimination in recruitment

(CIPD, 2022). Thus, recruitment often fails to result in an inclusive and diverse workforce

(Pilbeam and Corbridge, 2006; Di Stasio and Heath, 2019).
