Why do we recommend disclosing the salary/ pay rate on a job description?
By disclosing pay rates the industry can counter a common practice in HR which is to look at the previous salaries of candidates in order to determine what they should be paid. This can lead to economic disadvantages for different people. For instance, paying women less could unintentionally be perpetuated into their new positions. As such, providing a salary range in the job description helps reduce an organization’s bias in proposing a salary based on the candidate’s previous salaries and the candidate’s identities. Salary transparency is a small but important step to fighting the barriers that exist in making the creative industry more diverse and in turn more amazing.
Beyond the job description, what information should be included?
- An Application Deadline
Read MoreThe job board automatically sets to expire a job posting in one month, so a deadline is important for accuracy and efficiency. You will receive a warning email a few days before the job posting expires and you may reach out to TBL then to update if needed. However, if you have a deadline in mind before posting, please share it within the job description and The BrandLab will edit the deadline before posting it!
- A Diversity and Inclusion Statement
Read MoreWe also highly recommend including a Diversity & Inclusion Statement in the description. The BrandLab has received many comments from partners and people of color wanting to know if various organizations value diversity, equity, and inclusion. One simple way to demonstrate your organization’s commitment to an inclusive workplace is to share a statement that reflects your organization’s core belief around valuing all people.One of the key pillars at The BrandLab is improving equity within the industry. If you’re interested in learning more about our work towards this cause, check out our Fearless Program. We offer workshops on diversity, equity and inclusion.
