Recruiting Toolkit: 05. Managing Unconscious Bias in Recruiting

Course overview

When you interview, your goal is to find the best candidate using the fairest process. Not only because it's a legal requirement, but also because it's the right thing to do. While we try hard to make sure we abide by Title VII and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, we do have biases that can creep into the process. In this course, we'll talk about how to avoid making hiring decisions based on our own biases. We'll define what unconscious bias is and what the most common unconscious biases are: Confirmation bias, Availability heuristic bias, Perception bias, and Functional fixedness bias.
