What is a bias-free hiring?

January 16th, 2023|Categories: , Talent Sourcing|

We all have biases. Some are conscious, and some operate on the unconscious level. But what happens when our beliefs (even those we are unaware of) interfere in a hiring process? Bias-free recruitmentensures that all candidates are assessed similarly and based on the same criteria. This practice will consider their qualities, education and skills rather than their appearance or background. ๐–๐ก๐š๐ญ ๐š๐ซ๐ž ๐ญ๐ก๐ž ๐š๐๐ฏ๐š๐ง๐ญ๐š๐ ๐ž๐ฌ ๐จ๐Ÿ ๐š bias-free hiring ๐ฉ๐ซ๐จ๐œ๐ž๐ฌ๐ฌ? 1๏ธโƒฃ๏ธ๏ธ๏ธ It helps to create a diverse team or talent pool, including specific groups with various backgrounds. 2๏ธโƒฃ Bias-free recruitment will rely on questions and analysis that prioritize the requirements and work experience asked for a job position. ๐‡๐จ๐ฐ ๐ญ๐จ ๐ก๐ข๐ซ๐ž ๐ฐ๐ข๐ญ๐ก๐จ๐ฎ๐ญ ๐›๐ข๐š๐ฌ ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐ŸŽ“ Educate your team about biases and how to avoid them. ๐Ÿ‘ Design standard interviews. ๐Ÿ’– Consider hiring an experienced and bias-free partner as Smelt, that will ensure an ethical hiring process based on evidence. ๐Ÿ“‘ Write inclusive job descriptions. ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ’ป Make data-driven decisions.

Transagressive behaviour in the workplace

June 27th, 2022|Categories: |

Cross-border behaviour has been a hot topic lately. What exactly should be understood as transgressive behaviour remains a difficult question. Where exactly does that boundary lie? Is `you look good today` a sincere compliment or is there a different meaning? There is no clear-cut definition for the concept, also - or perhaps precisely - because subjective elements seem to be involved alongside objective factors. So, what is a compliment for one person, can cause a very unpleasant feeling for another. Smelt wants to draw extra attention to the payrollers, employees on secondment and independent interim professionals. To what extent do they feel safe to discuss transgressive behaviour and their experiences? Because this group is extra vulnerable since there is no permanent employment, it is essential to make this subject open for discussion and remove any uncertainty about it. As of today, a new protocol has entered the Smelt workforce and we have also thoroughly reviewed the processes. Our confidants Iris Calmes (The Netherlands) and Ellen Meeusen (Belgium) raise the topic "I feel safe as a flexible worker with the client" in all interim evaluations. If you have experiences that you would like to share with us, or advice that we could benefit from, please do not hesitate to share them with us and contact our colleague Iris Calmes.

Maak kennis met de talent pools van Smelt

December 13th, 2021|Categories: |

Als marktleider binnen recruitment in Life Sciences zien wij als eerste de grote bewegingen in de recruitmentmarkt. De vraag naar talent met ervaring รฉn netwerk binnen een indicatiegebied is (te) groot. Houdt uw organisatie vast aan ervaring รฉn netwerk binnen hetย vak-en indicatiegebied, vraag uzelfย dan af wat uw organisatie de potentiรซle nieuwe werknemer gaat bieden, waardoor de gedroomde kandidaat zijn huidige, net zo leuke positie gaat inwisselen voor een nieuw avontuur. Dat ene supertalent binnenhalen is maatwerk en kost tijd en moeite. Met behulp van een talent pipeline kunt u ruim voordat een vacature ontstaat een relatie aangaan met de toekomstige werknemer en verkennen waar deze binnen uw organisatie van toegevoegde waarde kan zijn. Smelt biedt deze serviceย aan,ย passend bij de huidige marktontwikkelingen. Door het creรซren van een candidate pipeline bieden wijย de mogelijkheid van het aanleggenย van talent pools, specifiek voor uw organisatie (per functiecategorie). Deze pijplijn van talent versnelt het aantrekken van nieuwe medewerkers op het moment dat de positie vacant is. Ervaart u momenteel ook een tekort aan kandidaten met veel gevraagde profielen of dat het lastig is om de juiste talenten in de markt te bereiken, dan kan het creรซren van talent pools voor uw organisatie uitkomst bieden. Graag leggen wij in een persoonlijk gesprek de werking en de voordelen uit. Download onepager
