The harsh truth is that bias still exists in many forms, heavily influencing recruiting decisions and often going unnoticed.

Age, ethnicity, gender, and even your weight are all triggers for conscious and unconscious bias towards the candidates. Your implicit bias not only repels the right candidates from applying and prevents them from getting hired but also can lead to poor hiring decisions and tarnishing your company’s employer brand and reputation. What can you do about it?
