Presented by Hire Immigrants and Magnet | Archived webinar featured on March 9, 2017
As an employer, accessing the best, most talented people is a key ingredient for success. But what happens if the most talented person is screened out before the interview? Research studies have shown that suitable applicants are not getting interviews because of one characteristic: the name on the application.
To fully leverage the benefits of diversity, employers must be aware of how unconscious biases affect perceptions and how important recruitment decisions are made. In this webinar, two industry experts will share with us their innovative HR solutions for addressing and overcoming biases to fully realize the benefits of a diverse workforce.
