Los Angeles (PRWEB) February 16, 2009
Diversity training, recruitment and consulting services combined with a comprehensive job board and career network are now available with the partnership of CPGjobs, the consumer packaged goods industry’s #1 career network, and Diversity Search, Inc., the industry-leading recruitment firm specializing in the placement of women and minority candidates. The partnership will increase the reach and service offerings of both organizations while addressing the needs of increasingly diverse work environments worldwide.
For more than 10 years, CPGjobs has been connecting candidates experienced in the consumer packaged goods industry with top-tier, Fortune 500 employers and recruiters. Unlike large commercial job boards, the company's unique business model emphasizes long-term, personal relationships with candidates throughout their careers -- whether they are actively engaged in a job search or not. This “professional networking” model, combined with its popular job board, CPGjoblist, enables CPGjobs to provide its clients with valuable access to both active and passive candidates and their professional connections.
In Diversity Search, Inc. CPGjobs President and Founder Michael Carrillo says he has found the right recruiting partner that will provide clients with needed services, while helping to grow business overall. According to Carrillo, “Diversity Search, Inc. is the perfect partner for CPGjobs. Our clients have been asking for recruiting services for several years now. The challenge was to find a partner that could rapidly deliver completed searches with high-quality candidates, and provide a good fit in terms of shared core values. Diversity Search delivers all that and more.”
Lee McDuffey, President and CEO of Diversity Search, Inc. is considered an industry leader in the field of workplace diversity. For more than a decade, his company has provided “A” level talent to many Fortune 500 companies in the consumer packaged goods, pharmaceutical and healthcare industries. The company focuses on diversity training, recruiting and consulting and prides itself on delivering completed searches with a 91% retention rate beyond three years.
The increasingly global workforce makes diversity a key 21st century business issue. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, by the year 2050, Women will occupy 48% of the total U.S. labor force. Latinos and African Americans will occupy 24.3% and 14% of the labor force respectively, while white, Non-Hispanic workers will decrease their share by nearly 20%.
“I’ve been preaching diversity for years when my colleagues were talking about affirmative action,” says McDuffey. “Diversity Search’s goal is to help minorities and women achieve not just job placement, but career success in the marketplace. We are considered experts in diversity by others in the industry because we are not only very successful in placing candidates, but we help our clients with diversity training using methods that boost retention of diverse employees. This success translates directly to our clients’ bottom lines.”
CPGjobs and Diversity Search, Inc. will begin marketing their partnership this month with outbound email campaigns to clients and candidates. In the coming months the two organizations will cooperate on marketing efforts that will include online advertising, content creation and aggressive awareness and acquisition campaigns.
“Diversity is a business decision,” says McDuffey. “Organizations derive a clear competitive advantage by having a diverse workforce and understanding the diverse needs of their customers.”
