What is a bias-free hiring?

Home/, Talent Sourcing/What is a bias-free hiring?

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.

Equalture: a game-based assessmentย 

To ensure a bias-free hiring process, Smelt uses Equalture. Equalture is a game-based assessment, introduced at the beginning of the hiring process to see the true potential of your candidates. Based on science, not bias. Equaltureโ€™s games are non-trainable, non-manipulable, free from biases and very enjoyable, which ensures equal treatment of all candidates.
