Abstract and Keywords

In this chapter, we discuss the research literature on diversity staffing to shed light on a topic that is increasingly important to both researchers and practitioners. To navigate the literature in this area, we organize our discussion around six basic questions confronting organizations as they pursue diversity during the recruitment and selection processes: (1) why should organizations staff for diversity, (2) who should recruit and select applicants, (3) what messages should organizations convey to job seekers, (4) when should organizations prioritize diversity staffing, (5) where should organizations recruit applicants, and (6) how should organizations select for diversity. We also discuss several existing gaps in the literature and identify directions for future research and practice.

Keywords: diversity recruitment, personnel selection, minority employees, minority recruiters, recruitment messages, recruitment locations, recruitment sources, recruitment mediums
