    Is not more important to employ a person who can actually do the job?? What religion or whether they are LBGT should not matter...should it??

    This is about employing people that can do the job. Many people that can do the job have been excluded from the opportunity and or made to feel less human. It’s time to put the past behind us and move forward with 100% inclusion, equality and opportunity.

    I could not agree more.
    The right person for the job is just that - the right person! Gender, race, orientation, creed or colour are all irrelevant - or should be.
    Any form of discrimination is wrong: one woman's positive discrimination is another man's negative.

    The question is - what are the criteria for the right person and who defines what those criteria are?
    If you have eight candidates who all meet the minimum technical requirements, what then? The company is going to look at personality, soft skills and experience. For instance, do you want someone who is going to fit smoothly with an existing team - or shake things up? Do you want the best technically qualified person who seems to be a nerd or someone with better people skills? Do you want a young person who won't question the corporate ethos or an experienced person who will help avoid familiar mistakes, but might not have the same drive. These are all subjective judgements which can affect the job description and appointment process.
