It has become quite common for leading firms to proactively identify and reduce unconscious biases in order to increase diversity. However, few recruiters realize that how interviews and other segments of the hiring process are conducted directly impacts the quality of hire across all candidates. Yes, it turns out that the same unconscious biases that limit the hiring of diverse candidates can also, unfortunately, screen out many highly desirable innovators, strategic thinkers, and techies.

If you want to improve the accuracy of your screening, and yes, your overall hiring results, it’s time to update your tools to include a technology and data-driven approach to screening. 

This highly interactive session will be presented by longtime ERE author Dr. John Sullivan.

Key takeaways will include:   

  • How data has revealed where unconscious biases occur       
  • How technology advances can immediately improve your quality of hire      
  • Simple tips to improve the accuracy and reduce the bias of resume screening      
  • Advice that recruiters can give to their hiring managers on how to improve their interviewing results
