Hiring WBCP, Inc. to lead our search for a new Fire Chief was the best decision our board made. I have served on dozens of hiring committees and this was by far the best quality and most efficient process I’ve experienced. If we need to hire another executive leader, Wendi and her team would be my first choice.”

Attracting Ethnic & Gender-Diverse Applicant Pools
Hiring with diversity in mind

WBCP provides a fair and equal recruitment process that also focuses on attracting ethnic and gender-diverse applicant pools by utilizing inclusive language in our recruitment brochures, marketing our recruitments on well-established and respected diversity job boards and social media accounts, and incorporating diversity, equity, and inclusion questions into our candidate vetting and interviewing processes.

Recruiting top talent has become the number-one topic among administrators. New and innovative recruitment strategies are critical to identifying and securing candidates with a deep understanding of how to assess and meet community needs and address future challenges. WBCP understands the complexity of community leadership, and we are prepared to provide a thorough, complete, and fair recruitment process to provide a diverse applicant pool.

In 2022, WBCP formed a partnership with the country’s largest network of diversity job boards and candidates. This exciting partnership allows us to reach an even more diverse pool of candidates. A testament to the value of this network is shown by the fact that since our formed partnership, WBCP has seen a 21% increase in diverse applicants and 13% increase in diverse candidates placed in positions with our clients. With our partnership, all of our recruitments are shared on over 600 locally focused employment and diversity websites. Our firm can also tap into a network of 15,000+ community-based organizations and niche diversity sites and a job bank of over 2 million resumes. Additionally, our recruiters are LinkedIn recruiters, which allows them to target ideal candidates across 350+ million profiles.

Upon our November 2023 review of WBCP’s applicants and hires for our clients in the past three years, 90% of our applicants and 83% of our candidates placed in positions came from diverse backgrounds. This is a testament to WBCP’s commitment to improving diversity, equity, and inclusion recruitment practices.
