Topic: Contemporary Recruitment – Mitigating Bias for better outcomes
Presenter: Kate Glazebrook (online), Chair and Cofounder at Applied, supported with a case study from new HunterNet member MGA Thermal – Arden Jarrett
Applied is a technology enabled platform offering an option to de-biased recruiting in an ethical and effective manner. Traditional hiring methods allow for unconscious biases to creep in, resulting in a high likelihood that the best candidate may be missed. By using anonymised, randomised applications and skill-based assessments, Applied reveals talent that may be overlooked via traditional hiring methods.
