ClearCompany + Circa + Checkr Webinar

10 Steps to Reduce Bias & Increase Fairness in the Hiring Process

Watch the Webinar

Human Bias is not something HR & TA leaders can eliminate. Even after implementing changes to hiring processes, individuals can still prevent companies from meeting optimal candidates - because of their own biases. In fact, experts at Forbes wrote, “Even after outlining the steps that should be taken to improve the hiring process and uncover more diverse talent, implicit bias on the part of recruiters, human resources professionals and managers may derail those efforts, preventing the company from finding the best and brightest.”

Thinking about trying to reduce bias completely in your hiring and onboarding process is overwhelming. Where do you even begin to make changes? Making minor changes to your hiring processes can increase fairness and diversify your candidate pool, giving you a better chance of finding the perfect candidate to hire.

Join us as we discuss how you reduce bias and increase fairness in your hiring and onboarding processes. We will be joined by ClearCompany and Circa to learn how to implement changes that will benefit your company. Our panel of experts will cover:

  • How to interview for skills and attributes instead of experience 
  • Ways to reduce affinity bias through interview panels and skills-based questions 
  • Ideas on implementing a fair chance hiring program to reduce biases against system impacted individuals 
  • Ways to source diverse candidates through expanding sourcing and talent pools
