Collect Custom Demographic Responses on Job Posts


Before your team can activate and enable custom demographic questions on job posts, you will need to have created at least one question. To learn more about how to create custom demographic questions, click here. In this article, we will cover how to:

Once enabled, all responses will be be reported in the Pipeline by Demographic report. 


Activate Custom Demographic Questions Feature

To activate these features, click the ellipsis ellipsis.png from your navigation bar and select Inclusion from the dropdown menu.


From the Inclusion page, navigate to the Configure panel on the right-hand side and click Configure tools to reduce bias.


From the Inclusion page, navigate to the Data Collection panel and toggle the button ON next to Job Posts.

You cannot active the feature until you have created at least 1 demographic question. Greenhouse Inclusion does not provide any default demographic question and first time users of this feature should visit: Create a Custom Demographic Question


Note: Your list of custom demographic questions will be stored under a Section Header. To access the question click Edit under the Action column. The Language column will display English as the default language until Greenhouse supports multiple languages.


Enable Custom Demographic Questions on Single Job

Once custom demographic questions are activated for your organization, these questions can be enabled on a per job basis.

From the All Jobs page, click Bulk Actions and select the jobs that should have custom demographic questions in their job posts. Once finished, click Edit External Job Posts.
