The goal of the Increasing Diversity in Government project, a joint project of the Volcker Alliance, the Behavioural Insights Team (BIT), NC Office of State Human Resources (NCOSHR), and NC Office of Strategic Partnerships (OSP), is to apply insights from the behavioral sciences and rigorous research methodologies to identify best practices in government recruitment to increase diversity in state government workforces.
- A summary of best practices and implementation plan for state government stakeholders, specifically addressing how state agency HR representatives and college/university partners can use the plan to improve recruitment practices.
- Behavioral map of North Carolina’s hiring processes.
- Strategies to improve workforce diversity in the public sector.
Planned use of results
