Reducing Bias in Hiring

MAY 30, 2021

Reducing Bias in Hiring

Recruiting for diversity is the top priority facing talent professionals and hiring managers today. Considering 67% of job seekers say diversity is a key factor when evaluating job offers, and a sense of belonging reduces turnover risk by up to 50%, DEIB plays a major role in talent acquisition. But, a diversified workforce doesn’t just happen on its own.

In this session of Redesigning the Future of Work, Jaime Klein is joined by Rachell Morris, Head of Human Resources at TED, Anthony Louis, Recruiting Operations Manager at Beacon Talent, and Tiffany Dyba, Inspire Expert and Recruitment Specialist to share strategies and tactics, including:

  • Leading with the “why” when recruiting for diversity to avoid othering
  • Removing the search for “fit” in recruiting as it leads to sameness, instead looking for “culture add”
  • Committing to pay equity, by offering a consistent range to each candidate during salary negotiations, removing the onus from the candidate

 And so much more.
