Reducing Bias in the Interview Process

Traditional interviews can be prone to bias, may not provide a complete picture of the candidate’s abilities, and may not be a reliable predictor of job performance. As a result, organizations may benefit from using additional assessment tools, such as competency or behavioural interviews, to supplement traditional interviews and gain a more accurate assessment of candidates and reduce bias.

What do Hybrid-Work Models Mean for Company Culture?

During the recruitment process, employers should definitely expect questions from candidates about the availability of flexible work arrangements and be prepared to speak to the ways in which the company worked to maintain and build company culture in the era of remote and hybrid working.
