Bias in recruitment

Our bias affects every decision we make. Whether we are aware of it or not, our bias will determine who we choose to interview, how we interview them and who we hire. According to Social Talent, six attributes help with our decision-making:

  • Our Perception – how we see people and perceive reality.
  • Our Attitude – how we react towards certain people.
  • Our Behaviours – how receptive/friendly we are towards certain people.
  • Our Attention – which aspects of a person we pay most attention to.
  • Our Listening Skills – how much we actively listen to what certain people say.
  • Our Micro-affirmations – how much or how little we comfort certain people in certain situations.
