You will learn about the different types of implicit bias and discuss ways to eliminate the potential for it to corrupt your hiring and recruiting efforts. 

As a talent acquisition professional, your goal is to find and retain the best and brightest employees for your organization, but do your implicit biases hinder your selection and recruiting processes? This session will discuss training options to help bring unconscious bias to conscious awareness without creating discoverable data. Because promotions are often tied to evaluations, particular attention will be paid to the presence of implicit bias in appraisals. Finally, the session concludes with systemic safeguards you can put into place to mitigate the potential for unconscious bias to rear its ugly head, in areas that range from screening to decision-making. You will learn:

  • How to identify the different types of implicit bias.
