How Recruiters Can Stop Unconscious Bias During Resume Screening [Video]
Research confirms unconscious bias in recruiting is still a major problem.
Learn more in our video below:
A recent study found unconscious bias occurs during resume screening. Asian applicants were 75% more likely to get a callback for an interview when they used a “whitened” version of their name (e.g., Luke instead Lei).
Black applicants were 160% more likely to get a callback for an interview when they used a “whitened” version of their name (e.g., L. Smith instead of Latisha Smith).
If you think minority applicants with similar qualifications to majority candidates are being overlooked at your company, it might be time to look into a technology solution.
AI for resume screening can help reduce unconscious bias during recruiting by ignoring demographic information such as race, gender, and age.
