ABOUT THIS COURSE
Reducing bias in the recruitment process in order to create a more inclusive and diverse workforce.
Most companies appreciate that diversity can drive innovation and success. Yet the question remains, how do we ensure we are able to attract and recruit the very best talent across the widest range of diversity traits? Do we inadvertently put off some diverse candidates before they even apply? Are we as impartial as we would like to think we are? How can we boost fairness and equality in our recruitment processes?
Using the most recent research as well as on-the-ground experience gathered from clients in industries spanning from construction to finance to pharmaceuticals, this course will help those involved in recruitment at any level of an organisation to understand the challenges posed by unconscious bias and equip them with practical tools to mitigate the effects of bias and foster truly inclusive recruitment practices.
