Breaking Bias: How to work with your subconscious to reduce the impact of bias when seeking to hire someone
It may be painful to admit, but we are all horribly biased.
The reason being they serve us great mental shortcuts saving our brain time, effort and energy, and making it easier for us to filter information, make a quick decision, reduce potential risk and help us determine what we really need to know.
With a multitude of biases to choose from, what matters is having the awareness of their presence.
Being firmly lodged in our subconscious, they cannot be eliminated, but their impact can be reduced by building awareness of their existence and putting in place a framework to mitigate their effect.
To date only one strategy has been shown to be effective in moving us towards having a less biased brain.
