Overcoming Hiring Bias: Strategies for Inclusive Recruitment

Presented by Hire Immigrants and Magnet | Archived webinar featured on March 9, 2017

As an employer, accessing the best, most talented people is a key ingredient for success. But what happens if the most talented person is screened out before the interview? Research studies have shown that suitable applicants are not getting interviews because of one characteristic: the name on the application.

To fully leverage the benefits of diversity, employers must be aware of how unconscious biases affect perceptions and how important recruitment decisions are made. In this webinar, two industry experts will share with us their innovative HR solutions for addressing and overcoming biases to fully realize the benefits of a diverse workforce. In a moderated discussion by Dr. Rupa Banerjee, co-author of the recent research report, “Do Large Employers Treat Racial Minorities More Fairly?”, Freda Stolz, the Vice President of Human Resources at Hinduja Global Solutions (HGS), and Snéha Khilay, Director of Blue Tulip Training, will share their expertise and best practices for developing inclusive recruitment practices, from application assessment to hiring decisions.
