Picture this. You’ve stepped onto a bus. There’s two open seats and you sit down. Most likely you chose the seat next to someone who looks more like you. Or, at work, did you notice that a manager recently hired someone who looked and acted just like herself? These are two typical examples of unconscious bias.

We all want to believe we make hiring, firing and employee relations decisions without any type of bias. Your company abides by all necessary regulations and has strong policies in place to defend against unfair treatment. Your management team behaves appropriately and you’ve never dealt with a harassment claim. On the surface, everything appears fine. What’s the problem? Although it isn’t obvious, hidden bias may be negatively impacting your organization.

Watch this course (previously recorded live) to understand how best to recognize what unconscious bias is and how it impacts your employment cycle from recruiting to retention.
