Hologram Partners With Paradigm to Create & Scale Inclusive Hiring
In 2021, Hologram — a cellular platform designed for the Internet of Things — was preparing for a period of hypergrowth and sought outside expertise to design an efficient, objective, and equitable hiring process. Hologram turned to Paradigm to design and roll out a revamped hiring strategy.
Inclusive Candidate Experiences
Paradigm began the engagement by gathering context, conducting deep-dive interviews with leaders, and reviewing existing documentation like team-level hiring guides and interview questions. Through collaborative sessions, Paradigm worked with Hologram to map out the processes and systems that would not only improve hiring outcomes, but also align with the way work gets done at Hologram.
The result? An end-to-end hiring playbook to guide anyone involved in hiring at Hologram. Accessible through a shared workspace, the playbook also includes research underscoring the approach and tips that employees can adopt to mitigate bias and create a more inclusive candidate experience.
Paradigm also reviewed Hologram’s existing Applicant Tracking System and suggested improvements for data analysis and interpretation (e.g., understanding pipeline representation, source success, hiring rates by demographics, etc.).
To support the roll out of the new playbook, Paradigm facilitated Inclusive Hiring workshops across the organization. This gave managers an understanding of how to create an inclusive experience for candidates, use structure to mitigate their own biases, and drive objective decisions.
