Reducing Hidden Bias in Hiring and the Workplace

Even with the best intentions, Employers may not be aware of hidden and unintentional biases in the recruiting and hiring process that hinder their efforts to have a diverse and discrimination-free workplace. Unconscious bias can exist in the application, interview and onboarding process, as well as in day-to-day workplace interactions. Thankfully, there are steps that businesses can take to become more aware of any hidden biases that may exist, and there are things that can be done to address them.

Don’t let unconscious biases create issues for your business or hold back its growth.  Please join us for an interactive presentation and discussion with tips and strategies you can implement to identify and reduce hidden and unintentional bias in recruiting and in the workplace.
