Recruiting Biases and How to Avoid Them

Recruiting Biases and How to Avoid Them

When it comes to recruiting and hiring for your organization, you want to find the most talented candidates. Casting a large net to include a diverse work environment makes for a smarter, more innovative workforce. But, in order to ensure that you hire the most diverse talent, there's a critical piece that you need to address–recruiting bias–biases that the hiring team may possess or that are embedded into the hiring process–biases that you may not even be aware of.


The Problem with Recruiting Biases

Sometimes recruiting biases can sabotage hiring efforts, especially when you’re not aware that they exist or are embedded in the process–and that’s why employers should be consciously aware of them.

In this episode of HR Party of One—BerniePortal's popular podcast and YouTube series— Elisabeth will explain what recruiting bias is, the negative implications it can pose, and how you can avoid it the next time you’re searching for that perfect candidate to join your organization. By the end of the episode, you’ll have a better understanding of how you can recognize and eliminate bias in your hiring process in order to create a diverse and inclusive workplace.
