Inclusive Recruitment at CUF

CUF shares best practices of inclusion resulting from their active participation in the Commitment to Inclusion by the Inclusive Community Forum.

The Inclusive Community Forum recorded a series of testimonies from companies that have signed the Commitment to Inclusion, about the challenges these companies face, the strategies used to surpass them, and suggestions that they give to other organizations that are on the path to implement an inclusive recruitment.

When making a company more inclusive of people with disabilities, particularly through recruitment, it is very important to commit specific resources to develop these new company practices. This was the strategy adopted by CUF, to promote the inclusive recruitment.

At CUF, there was one person assigned to the inclusive recruitment. Consequently, there were very interesting results, as shared by José Luis Carvalho and Maria João Vicente:

1) Lower learning curve due to a profound knowledge about CUF’s culture;

2) An increased attention and a more critical look towards all open positions available at CUF;

3) Increased agility, by institutionalizing the inclusive recruitment process in CUF’s standard procedures.

Watch CUF's testimony, and become inspired to change:

From flies in urinals to higher savings rates: How nudging influences our decisions

Nudging has been the start point of many economic studies, particularly in behavioral economics, as it explores how people´s decisions could significantly change predictably by modifying the context of such decisions in a very subtle form. The concept was first introduced by the Nobel Prizewinner Richard Thaler and Professor Cass Sunstein. However, Thaler stressed the point that nudging should be used for good, intending to improve society’s welfare, but has his wish become a reality?

We all have a role to play

We all have a role to play, and this is your way in.
