We’re Only Human 87: This Company Screens Thousands Of Candidates To Improve Inclusive Hiring Outcomes
“That hiring maanger still has a view of the candidate’s abilities and skills without being exposed to their race, gender, or ethnicity.”
Scot Sessions, Talvista
Did you know that there are nearly 200 cognitive biases that affect our decisions every day? While a decision about where to eat or what to wear is unlikely to have negative consequences, making a biased choice in hiring can lead to negative outcomes for people of color, women, and other minorities.
In this conversation, Ben speaks with Scot Sessions and Elaine Orler from the Talvista team to understand how technology can help minimize hiring biases and lead to better, more equitable outcomes. They discuss resume blinding and how it works and other practical advice for employers looking to hire more inclusively.
