In the race to recruit talent you have to “wave the flag that you are doing something different,” said Andres Tapia, senior partner at management consulting firm Korn Ferry. As the company’s global diversity, equity and inclusion strategist, Tapia has helped Fortune 500 companies and small firms put together plans to attract diverse talent. In this McKnight’s Newsmakers podcast, Tapia explains why these plans give all firms, including home care ones, a leg up in recruitment.

Editor’s note: In terms of labor problems, there has never been a time like today. In this ongoing series, McKnight’s Home Care will explore the various facets of the workforce shortage, how home care is responding to it and the innovation that is propelling the field forward with new and sometimes unconventional solutions. Read a new installment each month until the end of the year.
