Most hiring processes are hotbeds of biases. Very often, we try to hire clones of ourselves, either deliberately or subconsciously. This in turn destroys any notion of wanting to hire ‘the best’. In this workshop, we´ll identify steps in the hiring process, where these biases arise and how we could possibly eliminate them in order to really hire ‘the best’. It´s a relevant exercise for everyone interested in how biases influence our work, not just hiring managers.
We´ll have a clear focus on practical aspects, which can be used to improve our work environments. We´ll look at stereotypes and biases and how these influence our behaviour and how we´re perceived by our environment. The end result will be actionable steps to change our hiring practices. Much of the knowledge we gain about biases and stereotypes can be used in other work contexts as well.
In this course you will learn…
- How biases influence our decision-making processes
- How to identify weak spots in the overall hiring process from criteria all the way to the negotiation phase
- How to reach out to potential applicants without tilting the playing field
- How to use best practice examples of interviewing techniques
