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.
