How to build a more diverse IT workforce

Sharon Florentine | May 29, 2014
If you're looking for a way to more easily identify talent from underrepresented groups, Entelo Diversity offers a service that it claims leads to a more diverse tech team.

Hiring Veterans
In addition to helping companies identify and recruit women, minorities and other underrepresented groups into the workforce, Bischke says Entelo Diversity also helps businesses identify and recruit veterans.

"We're also excited about the military aspect, and application of the tool for that population, too," he says. "We know that hiring from the population brings candidates with great leadership and technical skills, and we hope the tool can help veterans find employment," he says.

In addition, Bischke says, Entelo is committed to helping close the technical and skills gap currently plaguing the education system through its Hiring for Good program. Bischke says that Entelo works closely with CodeEd, an organization that teaches programming skills to middle school girls from underserved communities.

"Every time someone's hired via the Entelo tool, we fund one year of code instruction and education for an underprivileged girl through the CodeEd program," Bischke says.
