Are we lowering our standards to hire people that are not as qualified for “diversity”? Do they really offer anything more (with all things considered) when compared with someone of similar qualifications?

- Square ☄️☄️☄️☄️☄️Your post is riddled with misconceptions. Clearly your employer already has low standards
- No but then we fire them. We don’t promote them just coz they are diverse. That’s what the problem is with diversity. Per Diversity only x% of woman of certain group should sleep with x% of same group male and and rest all should be given chance
Or worst performing actors should show up in next Avengers movie.
- It’s pure bullshit but If you think about it everything in world is, so who cares 😊
- Companies would be idiotic to have diversity policies that are self-defeating. The reason diversity programs exist is that companies naturally get under qualified and under-talented candidates precisely because they aren’t trying for diversity. Think about how many “good old boys” or “boys club” or “girls club” people get hired at most any company anywhere. They’re far from the most qualified - they just know people.
Like they say, it’s not what you know...
- This is certainly not true at Facebook. We strive to make sure there are a diverse set of candidates at the top of the funnel, but there is no special consideration in the hiring decision or interview process because of anyone’s diversity.
- I agree 100% with you. I once brought this up to a friend who's a recruiter at one of the FAANGs and she said to never bring that up to anyone but totally agrees that companies are leaning towards hiring based on identity rather than quality/performance. Sadly, the diversity program doesnt work in the sports entertainment and movie industry haha. i believe it's just brownie points for that company so they can boast. The purpose of a company is to produce good quality products but i feel some priorities have shifted into meeting certain quotas on how many minorities they've hired. I do appreciate diversity though because we're exposed to so many different perspectives but if theyre hiring minorities just to check off some items on a checklist is unfair for the qualified. ive met a few people who were hired cuz of the diversity program but overall, everyones competant and able to finish their task. some slower than others haha.
- Im not sure how it ended up like this but it's the trend now. i dont think the majority (caucasian and asian males) have a safe place to say because others will cause an uproar. or those who complain to the company will get disicplined or some sort.
remember that one google guy who got fired immediately after some sort of memo rearding diversity? The news reported it as antidiversity when it wasnt and when eople got their hands on this 10 page memo, it was revealed that the guy wasnt against it but pointed out strengths from males and females. also, what happened to freedom of speech? you only have freedom of speech when youre on the same side.
- Think about what standards means. It means grinding leetcode ability. That isn’t standards.
- Susquehanna International / EnghwEf88At my last employer I received triple the referral bonus when I referred a friend's wife, and she got hired. She was from a diverse group. I don't think she was worse than others. In the end she quit to pursue a law degree, guess tech wasn't what she enjoyed.
I also know that at my last employer that HR would make it so that a manager wasn't able to rate diverse team members below satifactory. At the same time managers were told they had to rate a certain number of team members below satisfsctory.
